Wawa opened the first store in the Sunshine State back in 2012 in Orlando.
As Wawa explained in a special statement, “the offer is meant to toast the community and give thanks to Wawa’s customers and 10,000 associates spread across Wawa’s almost 250 Florida stores.”
The company is offering a free, any-size hot coffee or a fountain beverage throughout all of its Florida stores, all day long on July 18.

As part of the big day, Wawa is also launching the Florida 10th Anniversary Fund. This will feature a total of $100,000 in donations to be given to a select 1,000 local nonprofits.
Grant amounts will vary between $1,000-$2,500. Eligible nonprofits are invited to apply at thewawafoundation.org by August 31.
“Though it’s been 10 years since Wawa first opened its doors in the Sunshine State, it feels like we’ve been here for even longer as we’ve been fortunate to develop so many lasting relationships and meaningful connections over the past decade,” said Chris Gheysens, Wawa’s president and CEO. “We’re thrilled to offer all Florida customers free coffee on July 18 and celebrate that with the launch of Florida 10th Anniversary Fund to support all the nonprofit organizations that give back to our communities in countless ways, every day.”
