Wawa plans to open store in Manatee County on University Parkway & Honore

By Josh Salman

UNIVERSITY PARK – Sarasota County will soon be able to go gaga for Wawa, joining a trio of stores the Pennsylvania-based chain has planned in Manatee County to satiate customers’ seemingly endless loyalty.

A Wawa planned for University Parkway near the Southwest corner of Honore Avenue also dovetails with pending retail and Interstate 75 expansions in the area.

To meet that nearby growth, Wawa intends to offer 16 gasoline pumps — along with its famous coffee and deli sandwiches — at its 6,119-square-foot store at 4900 University Parkway across from a Kohl’s-anchored retail plaza, according to plans submitted to Sarasota County.

For many, Wawa’s push into the county also signals a further maturation of retail concepts in Southwest Florida and an opportunity to connect with the past.

“Personally, I’ve seen growth from 3 convenience store operators including, Wawa, Sheetz and Racetrac”, said Sean Dreznin, commercial real estate agent with NAI Tampa Bay and native of Sarasota, FL.
