Are we ready for a drive-thru Wawa? Um, yeah!

Back in July, I told you that Wawa was planning on opening its very first store with a drive-thru in Westhampton. Fast forward to Friday and this game-changing Wawa will be open for business.

At first, I thought the idea for a drive-thru window at Wawa didn't was for convenience. Not the case. The company was planning for a COVID world.

Wawa says the plan is to offer drive-thru service from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. for a select variety of items like coffee, smoothies, sizzlis, and hoagies. Ah! It still pains me to write "hoagie." It's a sub! Anyway, whatever you want to call them, they're delicious.

I was poking around Wawa's corporate site and was excited to see that they are planning on opening a new store in Eatontown on Route 35 and N. Meridian Rd. They say it should be operational by early 2021.

Some may say, "do we really need another Wawa?" To that I say. Heck yeah! #wawalife

Now, the Wawa site didn't specify whether the new Eatontown Wawa would have a drive-thru, but it may all depend on the success (or lack thereof) of the Westhampton spot.

Wouldn't a Wawa drive-thru come in clutch when you're running late and need that quick coffee? It may also help when the stores are crazy busy in the morning and at lunch.

Is there a Wawa near you that desperately needs a drive-thru? Tell me about it - Matt.Ryan@townsquaremedia.com.
