WOODBRIDGE – To mark the grand opening of a new store at Rt. 9 & King George Road, Wawa, Inc. is hosting a hoagie building competition between the Woodbridge Police and the Hopelawn Fire Department.
On Friday, Oct. 12 at 10 a.m., Wawa will officially commence the grand opening ceremony, with the help of Mayor John E. McCormac. During the event Wawa executives, store associates and Wawa’s mascot, Wally Goose, will join in and celebrate the grand opening festivities and ribbon cutting ceremony.
As part of the celebration, Wawa’s Chief Financial Officer Jim Morey will lead the event, giving thanks to everyone in the community who works hard to keep it safe. Immediately following the ribbon cutting ceremony, Wawa will host a charitable Hoagie building contest between Woodbridge Police and the Hopelawn Fire Department. Each team will be challenged to build as many hoagies as they can in the traditional Wawa way in three minutes. On behalf of the winning and runner up teams, Wawa will make a donation to the charities of their choice.
“Our grand opening celebration is a wonderful way to show our support, bring the community together and provide the Woodbridge community with the Wawa products it loves,” said Jim Shortall, director of store operations.
