Wawa in the last weeks of 2020 opened its first drive-thru location in Westampton, N.J. It has a traditional, full-service format with fuel, but it’s also equipped with a two-lane drive-thru with an emphasis on its foodservice offer.

The store, which operates from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m., can accommodate 19 cars in line. There are separate order points with digital menu boards, including a QR scan menu option, and one point of pay and pickup window. Customers can order Wawa food in newly bundled offers such as a Breakfast Sizzli and Coffee for $4.29.

“Wawa continues to test new store concepts with this latest drive-thru format, providing an opportunity for our customers to experience and enjoy their favorite Wawa products while remaining inside their car,” said Terri Micklin, director of construction. “Wawa is committed to increasing convenience and providing new options for service while keeping safety and comfort top of mind. Wawa hopes to learn from the layout, workflow and traffic flow at this location, as it continues to explore alternatives for longer term application to stores post-COVID-19.”

Taking the concept one step further, on Jan 8, 2021, Wawa opened its first standalone drive-thru-only spot in Morrisville, Pa.
