Wawa tries everything. Sonic -style drive-in booths and Panera -like sit-down tables didn't last. But centralized baking and store-built hoagies have been profitable, and Wawa Inc. is now the world's biggest hoagie-maker, or so says bread supplier Len Amoroso . The 600-store, century-old, dairy-based, Delaware County-based Wawa chain has tried, and canceled, national taco, pizza, and doughnut concessions. It has tried bigger stores and smaller ones, before settling on 5,500 square feet as ideal for keeping people moving and reasonably cheerful.

The Pennsylvania Transit Expansion Coalition supports restored passenger rail service west of Elwyn, but is concerned about the escalating costs to extend the line three miles. The Wawa project is budgeted at $80 million, or $26.6 million per mile. Other transit agencies in the United States have made similar extensions at a lower cost per mile. PA-TEC recommends removing the 600-spot parking garage until growth dictates its need; reopening the Glen Riddle rail station on Route 452 to provide walkable access for residents at the Glenn Riddle Station apartment complex; removing the proposed railyard at Lenni; closing the Media yard; and scaling the Wawa train station to a fundable level.
