How Was "Wawa" Named?
Wawa is a chain of convenience store/fast food restaurant/gas stations located in the eastern United States. On April 16, 1964, Wawa Food Markets opened their first store in Folsom, Pennsylvania under the guidance of Grahame Wood. To this day many Wood family members are active within the company. Although Wawa is a family-run business, the employees of Wawa also hold a relatively large percentage of stock. Most Wawas are open 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. The chain's name comes from the site of the company's first milk plant in Wawa, Pennsylvania. The name of the town is in turn derived from the Lenape word for the Canada Goose in flight, an image of which serves as the Wawa corporate logo.
