Wawa, whose stores are open 24 hours, has more than 640 locations across the United States. Wawa is "a native American word for the Canada goose found in the Delaware Valley," the company's website says. The business began in 1803 as an iron foundry in New Jersey. Then, owner George Wood began processing milk in 1902.

As home delivery of milk declined in the 1960s, Wood's grandson opened the first Wawa Food Market in 1964.
