Fourth Wawa opens its doors in Ocala and offers free coffee for 10 days

The fourth Wawa is officially open for business in Ocala, just one month after the other three locations opened their doors. 

The newest Wawa in Ocala, which is located at 4025 SW College Road, officially opened its doors on Thursday, May 23 with a ribbon-cutting celebration. Like its sister locations, the new gas station will offer free coffee to all customers through Sunday, June 2.

The grand opening of the fourth Wawa within city limits marks Wawa’s 22nd store opening in 2019 alone. The company has plans to open 63 new stores and remodel 59 others by the end of 2019.

Since the opening of the first three locations in Wawa, residents have welcomed the gas station and convenience store with open arms. Long lines for sandwiches and gas pumps have been spotted at every Wawa across town in the last month.
