(Undated) - A popular chain of convenience stores and gas stations is coming to the tri-state area. 

Wawa announced Wednesday plans to launch its first stores in the states of Ohio, Indiana, and Kentucky. These states are part of Wawa’s long-term expansion plan to fuel future growth in adjacent and new markets.

Their stores offer a large fresh foodservice selection, including Wawa brands such as custom prepared hoagies, freshly brewed coffee, hot breakfast sandwiches, hand-crafted specialty beverages, a dinner menu including burgers and an assortment of soups, sides, and snacks.

Today, Wawa stores are located in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, Florida and Washington, D.C.

Market launches in Indiana, Kentucky, and Ohio are expected to take place sometime after 2025 with estimated timeframes and ranges for number of stores by state to be announced in 2023.
