North Plainfield store holds Taste of Wawa event ahead of Thursday opening

Posted: Updated:

A new Wawa is set to open in North Plainfield Thursday.

News 12 New Jersey got a sneak peek of the new location on Route 22. It was open Wednesday for some town officials and VIP customers. Guests received a tour of the new location, along with samples of Wawa’s new menu items.

But Wawa officials say that it’s not just the food that makes Wawa special.

"What makes Wawa so special is not the gas or the coffee or the hoagies, and all of those are fantastic, but what makes Wawa really special in the hearts and minds of our customers are the great associates that they'll find right here in this store and in the over 200 locations throughout the state of New Jersey,” says Wawa director of store operations Jason Read.

The store officially opens on Thursday at 8 p.m.
