WAWA, Pa. — Wawa Inc. is rolling out its new catering offer to all of its convenience stores. The move follows the expansion of a test of the concept in Philadelphia.

As part of Wawa’s convenience mission, catering offers customers the ability to contact any store to place an order for pickup of breakfast, lunch or dinner. The local Wawa store will accommodate orders with 24 to 48 hours of lead time, depending on selections.

Catering packages are customizable, affordable and provide the same fresh ingredients used in store, the company said. The menu includes breakfast items such as coffee, bagels and doughnuts; hoagies and sides such as macaroni and cheese, chicken noodle soup and chicken corn chowder soup; and sweets and snacks such as cookies and pretzels.

Customers can purchase a hoagie and soup/side box for 10 people for $64.99 or $6.49 per person plus state taxes, which Wawa said is a great value compared to other options available on the market.

New packaging for catering has a “beautiful” design and durability that is easy to transport and aesthetically pleasing to customers, the retailer said.

“Our new catering offer allows us to extend a whole new level of convenience to our customers. Time and time again, we hear from our customers they would love to cater a party or corporate gathering using their Wawa favorites, so we are excited to begin to extend the Wawa experience in this way,” said Steve Hackett, director of new initiatives for Wawa. “It gives us such pride in knowing that Wawa Catering will be part of many memories in the lives of our customers from children’s birthday parties and employee recognition events to fundraisers, retirement parties and more.”

This new offer is a store-level program and currently not available for ordering online or delivery, said the company.
