And then last Wednesday, I had a special opportunity to hear Chris Gheysens, the CEO of Wawa, speak at the annual Delaware County Press Club luncheon. Chris shared Wawas unique and highly successful business model with those in the audience, and spoke about the characteristics of the convenience stores that make each Wawa unique and steps above their competition. He kept going back to the Wawa Sales Associates, the hands-on, up-front people who work in the neighborhood Wawa stores.
Chris told stories about the associates and their connections to their customers. He talked about how they learn their customers names and food preferences and other things about them.
According to Chris, sales associates ask customers how their kids are, if they got their car fixed or how they did in their exams. He said he was in the Aston Wawa just recently and watched a cashier walk around the counter to hug a customer who was upset about something going on in her life. Customers take note of all this personal attention, these connections between workers and customers, and therefore, they keep coming back. Its not for the coffee and hoagies (although they like them a lot too), Chris said, but mostly because they like the way they are treated at their neighborhood Wawa.
As I listened to Chris, I knew that everything he was saying is true.
