Wawa Inc. Enters Florida Market with Stores Designed by CBX

CBX has designed a fresh, new prototypical store for Wawa Inc.'s entry into the Florida market. The first of the Wawa, Pa.-based fuel and convenience store operator's new locations in the Sunshine State opened July 18 across the street from Sea World, with four more scheduled to open in the Orlando area over the next five weeks. Located at the intersection of Central Florida Parkway and International Drive, Wawa's new 4,600-square-foot Orlando store is intended to reflect the language and style associated with Floridian vernacular architecture. Exterior characteristics include pastel colors, clapboard siding, pitched roofs and front porches that reference historic south and central Florida building types. The design also pays careful attention to landscaping, allowing the fuel islands and store to blend with its verdant surroundings. Once inside, customers will immediately notice the vibrant red-tiled wall placed front and center highlighting the new center island kitchen where fresh hoagie rolls will be baked-off daily. The food preparation area also incorporates a full-service specialty beverage section where customers can order 20+ handmade varieties of hot drinks, espressos, Chai teas and lattes, as well as more than 20 varieties of Smoothies and frozen beverages. Guests can order any specialty drink or sandwich exactly the way they want using Wawa's touch screen system, with a series of screens prominently positioned at the kitchen/specialty beverage area's counters. The counter area is immediately adjoined by coffee and fountain beverage sections with a backdrop of a warmer taupe wall tile. Red drum shades are used over the coffee area and at the beverage coolers (positioned on the opposite side of the foodservice/specialty drink counter) to create a 'sense of place'.
