The Wawa Story


The Wawa Way: How a Funny Name & 6 Core Values Revolutionized Convenience

By Howard Stoeckel (Running Press, 238 pages)

Written by former Wawa CEO Howard Stoeckel, this new book is jam-packed (maybe too jam-packed) with information on the iconic regional chain’s history, its expansion into the fuel business, and its budding national aspirations. Among other things, you’ll find out why coffee and hoagies became Wawa staples, and how a Villanova University student came to design its logo in 1974. All proceeds from the book’s sale go to the Wawa Foundation.
