Alright Manatee County. Brace yourself for yet another Wawa.
You’re about to get one more place to get your hoagies, your pretzels or your breakfast burritos.
The convenience store chain is moving forward with a location on Cortez Road West just east of 26th St. W, according to commercial building permits filed Wednesday in Manatee County.
That corner was once home to a Winn-Dixie, which closed in 2015. A Burger King, Cracker Barrel Old Country Store and a Best Western Plus are also nearby.
Wawa is known for having a fiercely loyal customer base, cheap gas and a sandwich-shop-style food counter. The convenience chain’s menu features a wide variety of hoagies, mac and cheese, wraps, burritos, milkshakes and coffee beverages.
