Wawa’s status as being privately owned ensures that the numbers behind its success are not readily accessible by the public.
However, a few fun facts explain how the Delco-based chain of convenience stores remains one of the most successful in the region, writes Danya Henninger for Billy Penn.
Also, people shopping at Wawa spend $7.42 per visit, which is 80 percent more than the industry average of $4.12.
The company’s workforce numbers more than 30,000 people, who jointly own more than 40 percent of the company. Thanks to the rise in the company’s share price from $900 in 2003 to its current $10,000, a number of employees retire as millionaires.
Operating in six states, plus Washington, D.C., Wawa serves around 800 million customers every year.
