Wawa Port Orange
As reported in an earlier blog, Wawa Inc. is looking to open a new convenience store/gas stations here in Port Orange, but they are already indicating interest in a second site.
Wawa recently signed a ground lease on a 1.85-acre site at the southeast corner of Dunlawton Avenue and Yorktowne Boulevard, next to the new Altamira Village Shopping Center. Wawa is also interested in the property at 1031 Dunlawton Blvd, where the Asian Fusion buffet restaurant is located. Wawa opened its first Florida location in July 2012 and has already built 14 stores between the Orlando and Tampa areas.Check back with us for further updates on the exciting commercial improvements in the Port Orange and Daytona Beach areas.
Wawa, the popular convenience store chain, may be coming to Port Orange in the future. This large mid-Atlantic company is famous for their large fresh food selection, including their ever-popular “Built-to-Order” Hoagies, Teas, and specialty drinks. The early speculation places a new Wawa store on Dunlawton Avenue at Nova Road at the sight of a previous chinese food restaurant.
Wawa, the name derived from a Native American word for the Canada Goose, operates in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia and most recently here in Florida. There have been several locations added in Orlando and Tampa, and with over 600 stores nationwide, Wawa would be a welcomed addition to Port Orange.
