Tell Wawa: Build a Store in DC!

      Washington, DC

Washington, DC is a thriving, cosmopolitan city. But it's missing something important: a conveninent sandwich and coffee stop that offers a variety of sundry items. Starbucks is inefficient and overpriced. CVS is great for band-aids, but falls down in the ready-to-eat food department. While our city's food trucks provide a valuable service, they don't all operate late into the night.

Enter: Wawa. 

Those of us who grew up with it know its flourescent glory. We have felt the joy of ordering a highly-customizable sandwich through a touch-screen.

Wawa CEO Howard B. Stoeckel used to work in DC (for the Washingotn Gas Company). He knows this city. And we need to let him know this is a city that deserves a WaWa.

Tell Howard Stoeckel that if he builds a Wawa in DC, it will be with the secure knowledge that he already has a built-in, reliable customer base that wants hoagies and consistent, affordable coffee.

      The Washington Post started a #dcwishlist conversation on Twitter for DC transplants who miss at-home products. A good opportunity to promote the petition.

      The idea of asking Wawa to build a store in DC has been something bouncing around in the back of my head for years. Please sign and share. Hopefully, we can get a positive response from the company.

      A 24-hour Wawa near the GW campus would be a revenue monster (highest grossing starbucks in country is located on GW campus). Please!!!!!
