WAWA, PA, U.S. – Wawa, an American chain of convenience stores and gas stations, has announced changes to self-serve coffee and other beverages in its stores. “As the situation surrounding COVID-19 continues to evolve, Wawa is doing everything we can to support the communities, customers and associates that rely on us every day, while constantly evaluating the best way to operate our stores” says the company in a statement.

“Effective March 20, Wawa has introduced the following temporary changes to in-store processes:

  • Wawa is temporarily adjusting self-service coffee, effective at 5 a.m. on March 20. Moving forward, a Wawa associate will serve coffee to customers.
  • Wawa is temporarily suspending all self-service fountain beverages, Icee drinks, cappuccino and iced coffee.
