Wawa plans to add new markets with expansion into Tennessee

As Wawa continues to add stores within its current geographic footprint, the Delaware County-based convenience chain plans to expand into Nashville, Tenn.

The first Nashville store is slated to open in 2025, with the potential for up to 40 stores in the new market, the company said in a press release.

“With a commitment to ‘Fulfilling Lives’ in our community, we’re thrilled to continue our growth in new markets to provide quality fresh food, beverages and support to new friends and neighbors,” John Poplawski, vice president of real estate for Wawa, said in a statement. “We are excited to expand beyond our current operating area and look forward to serving the community come 2025 and beyond.”

Wawa continues its growth throughout its current market areas of Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, Florida and Washington, D.C., and adjacent markets including the Florida Panhandle, South Alabama and North Carolina. In 2022, the chain plans to open 54 new stores, including three in Pennsylvania that are slated to open by the end of the summer.

While the company did not give specifics, it said it expects to enter “new, adjacent markets in the next few years.”

In the release, Wawa stated that its core purpose is “Fulfilling Lives, Every Day.”

“It captures Wawa’s special place in the world and recognizes Wawa’s higher calling beyond convenience and satisfaction. It inspires Wawa associates to create meaningful personal connections and make a real difference in the lives of customers, communities and each other, every day,” the release stated.
