"The joy we are feeling on this occasion is quite phenomenal," Wawa President and CEO Chris Gheysens said during the grand-opening celebration Friday.
The convenience store at the corner of Broad and Walnut streets was originally slated to open in late November. However, the construction schedule was accelerated to accommodate customers and visitors to Philadelphia for the World Meeting of Families (WMOF) and the historic visit of Pope Francis next week.
"We opened in record time, 85 days from demolition to today," Gheysens said. "And we couldn't be more honored to welcome the World Meeting of Families and Pope Francis. It's been a journey, it's been fun and we still have work to do."
When construction started in June, it signaled the return of Wawa to Center City, and Gheysens couldn't think of a better place to be, he told the crowd gathered inside the store on the Avenue of the Arts.
Gheysens on Friday also announced the retailer's "Lending a Helping Hoagie" program and its donation to The Francis Fund, a special fund established to help fight hunger in the Philadelphia region.

"At Wawa, we feel a special connection with the Philadelphia Eagles as we not only share many of the same fans, but share similar cultures based on teamwork and delighting our customers," said Chris Gheysens, president and CEO of Wawa.
"We are thrilled to be a 'proud partner' of the Philadelphia Eagles, and are excited to team up and fly higher together through the addition of new exciting offers to Eagles fans. We can't think of a better way to bring two similar hometown brands together, and look forward to providing world-class fan experiences," he added.
As Chris noted, we share similar cultures based on teamwork and delighting our fans and we are proud to team up with them."
Wawa will also have a presence at Lincoln Financial Field, the team's home stadium, through signage and other activations.
"Wawa is committed to supporting the events and institutions that play a leading role or have a significant impact in the region," Gheysens said.
