The state with the most Wawa locations in the United States is New Jersey, boasting an impressive 275 stores. That's 28% of all Wawa locations in the country! The Garden State is about to be replaced by the Sunshine State, however, as Wawa Inc. is rapidly expanding its presence in Florida. The convenience retailer recently announced a hiring campaign to add 1,000 new associates across Florida over the next three months.
Additionally, Wawa is hosting contracting events as it prepares to open its first convenience stores in Miami. The company expects to operate a total of 50 stores in South Florida in the coming years. Despite the expansion in Florida, Wawa is not neglecting its home state. The convenience retailer recently opened its largest store to date, located in Philadelphia's historic Independence Mall, on the corner of 6th Street and Chestnut Street, in December and began a larger hiring campaign to fill more than 4,000 positions in the next three months.
