Wawa Announces Plans to Expand Into Indiana, Kentucky & Ohio

Exact locations are expected to be announced in 2023.

(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.

Wawa is currently accepting site suggestions from real estate representatives for all locations, including new market areas.

“At Wawa, growth means strengthening our existing markets as well as expanding to both adjacent and new markets so we can reach new friends and neighbors and welcome them as part of our extended family,” said Chris Gheysens, Wawa’s President and CEO. “These markets are the perfect places for Wawa to expand based on their strong business communities, their family-like atmosphere, and the confidence that our unique offer and amazing associates will be welcomed by these communities. We look forward to bringing our freshly prepared food, specialty beverages, fuel, and convenience services to these new areas all while creating new jobs and meaningful community support.”
