Wawa, Inc.







Project Write-Up

Built on Relationship

Cuhaci Peterson worked with Wawa to develop its Florida store prototype design from a blank sheet of paper in 2010. Since then, our teams have opened more than 250 new stores in both Florida and the Mid-Atlantic, as well as hundreds of special projects and renovations. This includes stores in urban locations such as downtown Philadelphia, PA and Washington, D.C.

Our team maintains 13 building and 17 fuel canopy prototypes with several standard variations to each. We issue updated versions biannually and accommodate various prototypical owner initiatives throughout the year for incorporation into the site adapts as bulletins.

CP provides Wawa, Inc. with the following to date:

  • 500+ site adapt projects
  • 250+ remodel projects
  • 8 tenant improvement projects
  • Various special projects
  • Managed all building, fuel canopy, trash compound prototypes
  • Approximately 50 revision bulletins annually

At the peak in 2017, as Wawa ramped up toward the initiative of having 1,000 stores by the end of 2020, CP permitted 72 site adapt projects, 4 tenant improvements projects and 39 remodel projects in addition to the additional services listed below. Partnering with our client, we have grown and restructured our program team to accommodate an increase of work as we continued to grow our relationship, all while ensuring we are able to meet Wawa’s needs and maintain the pace and quality they have grown to expect from CP.
