Wawa has proposed to add 2 new Wawa’s on South College Avenue in Newark DE.
The Delaware County based convenience store has already proposed to add a “Super Wawa” to 1115 S. College Avenue in Newark. This Wawa will also include a gas station. Formerly there was a Friendly’s Restaurant on this site.
Additionally Wawa is proposing a drive-thru only Wawa at 1050 S. College Avenue. This is at the former site of a Boston Market.
The drive-thru concept is similar to the Swiss Farm drive-thru stores that have been in our region for many years.
This Wawa drive-thru concept was an innovation of the Covid-19 pandemic era in 2020.
Back then this is what Wawa had to say about their drive-thru approach when they opened their first drive-thru in Falls Township, Bucks County PA;
“It is critical to provide new ways to access Wawa, increase convenience and provide new options for service. We are hoping to learn from the layout, workflow and traffic flow at this location, as we continue to explore alternatives for longer-term application to our stores post-COVID-19.”
The store has also been testing a drive-thru concept for the traditional stores that will include a drive-thru window.
