"We had people who didn't know what a Wawa was and now they're running some of our best stores in Florida," Wawa CEO Chris Gheysens said.

Wawa is a Native American word for goose.
The company is over 200 years old and is one of the largest employee-owned firms in the country. Gheysens said it has about 200 employees who own over $1 million in stock thanks to its free stock compensation program.
Wawa also is among the most popular convenience store chains, as it's always open, offers fresh sandwiches or salads that can be ordered through a touchscreen or mobile app, and has a large variety of food and coffee. Gheysens said the Florida stores have menus designed for local tastes, such as Cuban coffee and Cuban sandwiches.
"We hope over the next five years to have over 50 locations in South Florida," Gheysens said. "We will eventually be at over 100 stores in South Florida and it means many opportunities for growth."
Each store is an investment of about $6 million, he said.
