Wawa recently launched the Wawa Remodel Program, a massive effort to remodel older, legacy stores to reflect Wawa’s latest store design and food service offerings.
In 2015, Wawa will remodel 40 existing stores—the most remodels to happen in one year ever in Wawa’s history. Older stores will get new store graphics and designs, and store offerings will now include new Hand-Spun Milkshakes and Coca-Cola Freestyle machines. Fuel stores will receive diesel pumps.
As part of the remodeling campaign, all Wawa stores will receive improved layout features to improve efficiency and to support an expanded food and beverage offer. Chris Gheysens, Wawa’s president and chief executive officer, said, “Through this massive remodeling effort, we will enhance the customer and associate experience in our stores and begin to bring our older stores up to date by featuring our latest offer and design. During the remodel process, stores will close for a few weeks while renovations take place.”
Five stores in Pennsylvania and New Jersey will close and go through remodeling through various weeks of February and March.
