    Convenience store, as noted. Some have gas stations. Here's their website: http://www.wawa.com/

    Here's the history:

    1800s

    The Company was founded in 1803 in New Jersey, and incorporated in 1865 as the Millville Manufacturing Company, a textile company with mills in several states and sales offices across the country.

    1902

    In 1902, George Wood, Millville's owner, opened a small milk plant in Wawa, PA, which specialized in processing, and the home delivery of "doctor certified" milk. The Wawa Dairy enjoyed a reputation for superior fresh products and customer service.

    1964

    On April 16, 1964, Wawa Food Markets opened their first store in Folsom, PA. This store was an immediate success, and it marked the beginning of the Wawa chain of food markets. From the beginning, Wawa made a commitment to fresh food - selling fresh produce and featuring a full-service deli. Over the years, the food service offer has been expanded to meet customers' needs.

    2001

    Today, the Wawa "family" has grown to include more than 13,000 associates with over 500 stores in five states.

    Source(s): JimiJamz references the guitar wah-wah pedal, which the WaWa stores chain uses in their current radio ad campaign. Here's the Wiki page for that: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wah-wah
