One of our subscribers namely Francisco Andino hailing from Orlando Florida, United States mailed us several queries regarding Wawa franchise a few days ago. What he wanted to know is the clear-cut answers for below-listed questions:
- Does Wawa franchise?
- If Wawa really does offer franchise opportunities, then how do I setup a Wawa franchise in the Dr. Phillips area in Orlando Florida?
- How much does it cost to open a Wawa franchise?
Well, before we try to address him, we want to tell u that he is not alone who seeks answers to these questions related to Wawa franchise. In fact, there are thousands of others who are trying to get answers to the same questions.
Without further ado, let’s now begin addressing the above-mentioned questions asked by Mr. Andino and help him and others find satisfactory answers:
1. What is Wawa?
Wawa, Inc. is a United States-based chain of retail stores and gas stations. Wawa convenience stores stock and sell a range of fresh food items. Its stores are scattered across Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Central Florida, Virginia etc like cities.
In addition to offering fresh food, Wawa also provides fuel services. Wawa as of today owns around 750 stores.
2. What makes Wawa Successful?
Wawa tops the list of companies that serve fresh food and fuel. Its secret to success is no mystery to most of us because we know being able to stay relevant and at the same time flexible is what has fuelled the popularity of Wawa.
Depicted by surveys that were conducted recently, it has been found that Wawa is even ahead of stores like Sheetz and QuikTrip in terms of customer loyalty score. Let’s now read on to know about company’s background, what it serves and does it offer franchise opportunities:
2. Historical overview
Wawa didn’t actually begin as a fresh food provider rather an iron foundry in 1803. Later in 1890, its founder George Wood after finding interest in dairy farming established a dairy plant. Then years passing by the first convenience store of Wawa came into existence in the year 1964.
3. Does Wawa offer franchise?
Instead of wasting your time, let us reveal the truth you would hardly be told by most online resources particularly those that publish franchise related information . The truth is neither does Wawa offer franchise opportunity presently nor as per its official website it will consider practising such expansion strategy in near future.
. It is a privately owned company. Therefore, it is pretty clear ( sorry to inform you ) that aspiring individuals cannot open a Wawa franchise.
4. How much does Wawa franchise cost?
The question of how much cost and fees do you require to own a Wawa franchise will remain invalid and certainly unanswered until the time when Wawa decides to adopt franchising model as a means of business expansion. Thank you!
