The Drexel campus store has long been renowned for its impressive sales of made-to-order sandwiches, and it's no wonder that the company officially announced the opening of an 8,760 square foot store at 3300 Market Street last year on Wawa Day. But what makes this particular Wawa stand out from the rest? Let's take a look at some of the unique features of this highest grossing Wawa. For starters, customers of the Wawa at 721 Naamans Creek Road in Chadds Ford can enjoy a cold beer with their Turkey Shorti. This is a rare feature among Wawas, as only a handful of locations in Pennsylvania sell beer. In terms of nutrition, the classic Italian sandwich contains about 155% of the recommended daily allowance of sodium when made with the normal ingredients (skip the Herr's Kettle Chips potatoes maybe).
The Wawa at Broad and Walnut has also made headlines for its controversial decision to change its service hours from 24 hours a day to 5 a.m. to 11 p.m., following two stabbings at that location. The first Center City Wawa debuted at 17th and Arch Streets in 2017, and it has since become one of the most popular locations in Philadelphia. The store is an impressive 11,500 square feet with large arched windows and gold doors, two murals, and a wall of living vegetation.
To celebrate its new baby, Wawa is going all out with festivities that start at 8 in the morning on opening day. Customers can expect more food and drink options than usual, including an expanded bakery with cakes, muffins, pastries and French bread; four varieties of Wawa Reserve coffee; coffees and teas on tap; and a limited-time molten lava Latte Liberty made with exclusive hot chocolate and topped with red, white and blue sparkles. The 6th and Chestnut Wawa also has plenty of seating in the form of sofas and coffee seats near the front of the store. It also serves as a test store for new food and beverage products, giving the Wawa team the opportunity to measure customer reaction. So if you're looking for a unique experience with plenty of food and beverage options, head over to 6th and Chestnut Streets for the highest grossing Wawa in Pennsylvania.
