When they start in an area there's no holding them back. We will have 4 in a 4 mile radius of our house. Two already built and the other two not far behind.

For any other Midwesterners who may never have heard of WAWA:

Looks like a pretty nice operation....

there are plenty of us who dont (or didn't- I learned abt them when they came to Orlando) know about Wawa.

But it seems a better version of a convenience/gas station than others. Great to see them expanding in Florida.

They will definitely keep prices in check. One of the recently opened ones is right opposite a Hess which was not noted for it's low prices. Now the Wawa has opened Hess prices are now as low as Wawa.

They apparently are taking some of the old Clarion Hotel site (recently demoed) on Route 41 at College Parkway in Fort Myers. Does anyone know what corner (or business bought) Wawa is doing at Colonial & Fowler Roads in Ft Myers? We need a Wawa to take the deadbeat Helmrich Plaza in Fort Myers Beach.

Answered my own question - it is currently empty property with just grass:

Ponte Vedra Beach developer The Ferber Co. purchased 3.45 acres of commercial land for $2.15 million.

The price equated to $623,188 per acre.

The parcel is just west of the corner of Colonial Boulevard and Fowler Street and has frontage on both roadways.

Chuck Mayhugh of Mayhugh Realty Inc. represented the seller, and Dan O’Berski of Trinity Commercial Group Inc. represented the buyer.

Mayhugh says the property features both a high-profile/high traffic-volume location and commercial intensive zoning, which allows a multitude of commercial uses.

The new property will be developed into a Wawa gas station.

And looking at Google drive I assume the Cape Coral one will be at the vacant ground shown at Del Parado & Pine Island Roads
