Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Think Wawa

Here is one of Wawa’s new additions, the burger.

You’re at the local grocery store close to dinner time and you still don’t have a clue as to what food or ingredients to purchase to make dinner, what do you do? The answer is simple, Wawa. Wawa is convenient and affordable offering a variety of meals and sides at breakfast, lunch, and dinner. For being labeled as “gas station food”, it has a tendency to leave customers’ taste buds satisfied. Since Wawa’s transition from a dairy farm to a food market in 1964, Wawa food became a staple in the food industry for American culture. They currently offer items such as make your own hoagies, freshly brewed coffee, hot breakfast sandwiches, specifically ordered drinks like smoothies, soups, sides and snacks, and more. The thing that sets Wawa apart from other fast food or gas stations that sell food is that the quality of the food received at Wawa is always consistently good. With consistent positive results in the outcomes of each of their food products at any moment in a given day, it’s hard for rival companies to compete at breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Wawa has great food products, so what are some of these popular products? For breakfast, they have popular options of breakfast burritos or even the Sizzli, which is a breakfast sandwich that is currently being sold in local Wawa’s as a 2 for $5 deal. At lunchtime, they offer their famous hoagies as well as other dinner products such as quesadillas, burgers, chicken tenders, and more. When local Wawa employees Max Herman and Taryn Mchugh were asked what the most popular hoagie order was, they responded that the “Italian hoagie” was ordered the most frequently during their time working in Wawa. Taryn Mchugh also added that Wawa progressively gets busier near lunchtime stating there’s a “brunch time rush” for customers who come to Wawa on lunch break from their jobs. Wawa also serves dinner options that are directly similar to that of the lunch options. When asked his opinion of Wawa implementing dinner into their food options, Max Herman said that it’s a “good money maker and a good way to spice things up.” With so much variety in their menus, the meal combinations at Wawa seem endless.

Wawa even offers annual promotions to sustain interest in some of its products. Examples of these promotions include the Wawa summer annual hoagie fest and the Wawa free coffee Tuesday during the winter season. Coffee is another vital product to Wawa’s success as one will find many avid coffee drinkers heading to their local Wawa to pick up a coffee to start their day. To recap, a person could wake up and go to Wawa to start their day off with a coffee and a sizzli or two, then pick up a fresh Italian hoagie and a fruit smoothie for lunch, and finally top it all off with a burger, quesadilla, chicken tenders or a panini for dinner all for an affordable price. An offer for quality food at Wawa couldn’t come for a more convenient customer-friendly price.

Wawa has ascended above rival fast food and gas station food corporations due to the variety and consistently good quality food on their menu. They serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner with some of their go-to products being coffee, hoagies, smoothies, burgers, sizzlis, chicken tenders, quesadillas, paninis, and more with many subcategories that fall under each of these products to customize food that consumers will enjoy eating. Don’t fret over dinner at the grocery store when you’re on an empty stomach; instead, go to Wawa and make life simple by ordering a quality food product for an affordable and convenient price.
