One of our visitors named Francisco Andino who hails from Orlando Florida, a popular city in the United States, a few days back mailed us few queries related to Wawa franchise. He wanted to know clear-cut answers to questions as:
- Does Wawa franchise?
- How do I set up a Wawa franchise in the Dr. Phillips area in Orlando Florida?
- How much does it cost to open one?
We believe he isn’t alone searching for answers to these questions. In fact, there are thousands of others desiring to open a Wawa franchise. So, let’s help Mr. Andino and others find right answers while addressing their Wawa franchise related queries in this post:
1. About Wawa
Wawa offers a range of fresh food items in its convenience retail stores scattered across in cities like Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Central Florida, Virginia etc. In addition to fresh food, Wawa even shares popularity in providing fuel.
Some say that Wawa didn’t actually begin as a fresh food provider, rather an iron foundry in 1803 and later in 1890, its founder George Wood after finding interest in dairy farming established a dairy plant. With years passing by Wawa’s first convenience store finally came into existence in 1964 and as of today owns 750 stores.
2. Does Wawa offer franchise?
While we don’t know whether Wawa will consider franchising in future or not but what presently is known is that Wawa doesn’t at all offer franchise opportunities. It is a privately held company. Therefore, it is pretty clear that aspiring individuals cannot own a Wawa franchise.
3. Franchise cost and fees
The question about Wawa franchise startup cost and fees will remain invalid until the time when Wawa decides to expand via franchise model. Thank you!
