Big Fish Restaurant Group plans to open a new coffeehouse/health foods eatery in mid-May. The group also plans to open a beer garden type establishment on Torbert Street.
It’s like Christmas morning, the first day of summer vacation and beginning of football season, all wrapped in one.
Well, that is if you’re a caffeine fiend.
Free coffee, any size, will be available at all Wawa stores on Thursday in celebration of Wawa Day.
For the past four years, the convenience store chain has been holding the popular promotion to honor the opening of its first store in Folsom, Pennsylvania, in April 1964.
The 54-year-old chain expects to give away 2 million free cups of any-size coffee to customers at its more than 790 stores across Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, Florida and Washington, D.C.
“Wawa Day is a great day for us to all pause and thank the millions of customers we’ve served over the past 54 years who have made us an integral part of the communities we serve,” Wawa President and CEO Chris Gheysens said in a prepared statement.
Wawa also gives away free coffee during other special events, such as at the opening or reopening of a new store or to celebrate local sports teams.
Before the 2018 Super Bowl kickoff, Wawa gave away free coffee to celebrate its hometown team, the Philadelphia Eagles.
The Eagles won Super Bowl LII, beating the New England Patriots 41–33.
