CINCINNATI (WXIX) - Wawa, a convenience store and gas station chain, plans to build about 60 stores in Ohio including locations in Butler, Clermont, Clinton, Hamilton, and Warren counties, company leadership announced Wednesday.
The convenience store also has sites under contract in Greene, Miami, and Montgomery counties, a news release from the company said.
The release says Wawa plans to open the Ohio stores over the next eight to 10 years with the first stores breaking ground in 2024 and up to ten stores opening in 2025.
