Wawa celebrated its 51st anniversary on April 16 and declared the date as Wawa Day this year and for all years to come. Wawa officially entered the retail business 51 years ago on April 16, 1964.
Last year, Wawa celebrated its 50th anniversary and marked the milestone with the launch of The Wawa Foundation, Wawa’s 501c (3) non-profit organization founded to encompass all of Wawa’s charitable giving. Wawa and The Wawa foundation is committed to donating $50 million to causes supporting health, hunger and every day heroes by 2018.
Every year on April 16, Wawa will celebrate with a variety of exciting customer-focused celebrations and donations from the Wawa Foundation.
This year, the celebration included free coffee, in-store digital tributes featuring photo montages to celebrate Wawa associates and customers, and donations from the foundation.
