A couple nights ago, I had this dream that they finally opened a Wawa Food Market up here in North Jersey.
The Wawa was located somewhere on Route 10 in Morris County, if my memory of the dream serves me correctly. I was driving down Route 10, when all of the sudden out the corner of my eye, I noticed a Wawa! As a result, I pulled into the parking lot and went into the new store to have a lookie!
In my dream, everybody was going to the Wawa, from people who wanted try the sandwiches, clearly distinguishable from that of Quikchek's, to those who wanted the coffee. There was such animated celebration on the part of the community at large over the fact that there was Wawa in the area. Wawas are the shit.
Unfortunately, it was only a dream. I love Wawa, though. It is in fact the king of all convenient stores. It kicks the asses Quikcheck, Krausers, and 7-11 any day of the week.
Love the Wawa.
Note: Wawa's territory once stretched into northern New Jersey, New York and Connecticut, but in the late 1990s, the decision was made to abandon the NYC-metropolitan area and New England, as it was too competitive. The stores
were re-branded when they were sold to Krausers (CT) and a variety of other convenience retailers, but most still retain their distinctive design.

While doing a little bit of research online, I discovered that Wawas were once extended up into the Metropolitan areas, such as New York and Northern NJ, but that was discontinued by the company when it was discovered that the competition was too fierce.
