The Garden State of New Jersey is home to the most Wawa locations in the United States, with a whopping 275 stores. That's 28% of all Wawa locations in the country! With nearly 9 million residents, that's an impressive 1 Wawa tent for every 32,584 people. But New Jersey isn't the only state where you can find a Wawa. The Sunshine State of Florida is quickly becoming a hotspot for the convenience retailer.
Wawa recently announced a hiring campaign to add 1,000 new associates across Florida over the next three months. The company is also hosting contracting events as it prepares to open its first convenience stores in Miami. In fact, Wawa expects to operate a total of 50 stores in South Florida in the coming years. Meanwhile, back in New Jersey, Wawa opened its largest store to date in Philadelphia's historic Independence Mall in December.
The company also began a larger hiring campaign to fill more than 4,000 positions in the next three months. So whether you're in New Jersey or Florida, you won't have to look far for a Wawa!.
