    Wawa convenience stores opening two locations in Boone County

    The celebrated Wawa convenience stores plan to open two locations in Boone County soon.

    Wawa is a chain of convenience stores and gas stations located along the east coast of the United States. Its name comes from the site of the company's first milk plant and corporate headquarters in the Wawa, Pennsylvania area, circa 1890.

    Wawa enjoys a level of popularity likened to a cult following. This has been attributed to its focus on service.

    The closest comparison in the Tri-State would be United Dairy Farmers (UDF). But Wawa offers more.

    The two locations we know about go before Boone County Government for zoning approval on September 20.

    One store is slated for 7670 Burlington Pike on the east side of I-75 and the other will be at Dixie Highway/Mt Zion Road.
