We opened our first store in 1964, but our roots go back to an iron foundry, which began in 1804 by the Wood family; with food operations beginning in 1902 when George Wood started Wawa dairy in Media, PA. "Wawa" is a Native American word for the Canadian Goose that was found in the Delaware Valley over 100 years ago. Our original Dairy farm was built on land located in a rural section of Pennsylvania called Wawa. That's why we use the goose as Wawa's corporate logo – less
