Above all else, Wawa values its own people, but with good reason, said Harry J. McHugh, senior vice president of operations at Wawa Inc.
In turn, employees strive to fulfill one of the company's core values of always delighting the customer, McHugh said. "This is our real reason for success," McHugh said. McHugh spoke about Wawa's commitment to hospitality and constant innovation as part of Mount Aloysius College's 2012-13 speaker series. "He never stops, he never slows down," Sheetz said of McHugh. McHugh joined Wawa in 1973 and has filled diverse roles from director of strategic planning and real estate to vice president of store operations. McHugh thanked Sheetz for the praise, but said the company owed its success to its people and constant innovation. Adaptation to a changing market and adhering to the company's key values was key to keeping the company going, McHugh said. "We succeeded beyond our wildest dreams," McHugh said. What started as a iron works and later a textile factory is now the longest-running privately held company in the world, McHugh said. Wawa constantly innovated, he said. In the 1960s, Wawa dairy farms transitioned into mini-supermarkets. The company began to build, not just make hoagies, McHugh said. And in 1996 Wawa jumped back into gasoline sales, which now exceed about 1.5 billion gallons annually. From restrooms to gasoline sales and food service, Wawa strives to ensure a customer-focused quality permeates through the entire company, McHugh said. Sheetz embraced McHugh following his introduction. At times, the company has followed the Altoona-based chain's lead and even lags behind in gasoline sales, McHugh said. "We cater to everybody," McHugh said.
