Wawa 50-year anniversary confirms business model

Sunday, April 13, 2014
Pleasantville, NJ

Wawa’s business model embraced evolution to become a major employer and economic machine in South Jersey and has expanded its reach into more markets with more products.

Marc Kalan, a Rutgers Business School marketing department professor, said Wawa has grown effectively based largely on locations and word of mouth, and increasingly as a gasoline seller.

“They’ve really made themselves an important player in a lot of the communities here,” he said.

Convenience stores are much different than traditional, larger-format food stores, he said. This makes location critical for such stores, and Wawa clearly prioritizes this aspect.

“They’ll spend a lot of energy identifying locations that are along good traffic routes,” Kalan said. “Convenience is its own benefit for consumers. Wawa’s not going to compete on price, although they are very competitive in the gasoline market. Price is not where you compete in that sector, but on convenience, location, hours and the array of products offered.”
