Wawa's first North Carolina location will be on the Outer Banks!

About a year after the beloved Pennsylvania-based gas station announced its plan to expand into the Tar Heel State, we finally have more information on the location of its first outpost.

According to WUNC, the gas station will be located on North Croatan Highway in Kill Devil Hills, with a groundbreaking set for May 12. The 6,000-square-foot site is across the street from the town's brand-new Target store. Once finished, it will feature eight gas pumps and 52 parking spots.

"We couldn't be more excited to bring Wawa's one-of-a-kind brand and offering to this market in the near future," Lori Bruce, the company's public relations manager, told WRAL back in March 2022. "We look forward to serving the community with our quality fresh food and beverages and, as always, our deep commitment to the communities in which we operate."

Wawa is an all-day stop for food, beverages, coffee, fuel, ATMs, clean restrooms, and more. It currently boasts more than 850 locations throughout East Coast, with footprints in in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, Florida, and Washington, D.C.

It has a cult-like following for its build-your-own hoagies, hot breakfast sandwiches, and beverages like peach tea and fresh coffee.

Officials have yet to share a timeline, but we'll provide an update as soon as we have one!
