If this Wawa is frequented by Tesla's as it likely will be I wouldn't be surprised to see Wawas adopting SCs all over where it makes sense. Wawa in our area is the early adopter of gas station superstores.

The Wawa site is at a gas station/convenience store and nothing else is within a reasonable walking distance. But the Wawa itself is pretty nice. The other 2 are at huge shopping centers with lots of food options close by. Traffic in and out of Brandon can be ridiculous at times. If it is really busy, use the east exit past the Japanese steakhouse to get back to Brandon Blvd. The Sarasota station is brand new and I'm not even sure that the shopping center is all built out yet.

How is this site compared to the site at: Regency Square, 2400 W Brandon Blvd. Brandon or the one at University Station, 5903 Honore Ave., Sarasota?

Hi Rick,

That is correct Brandon and Sarasota are located in or near large shopping centers or malls. Sometimes Brandon can have serious traffic, but your tip of using the alternate exit does really help in those situations.

Brandon has a large selection of restaurants and we have had a number of club meet-ups there at the restaurants. Here's a vicinity map.

The Sarasota Supercharger with 20 charging stalls is located in a small shopping mall called University Station. Whole Foods is the main anchor store and a small Mediterranean restaurant, Zoes Kitchen, just opened. (Whole Foods is not yet open.)

Directly across the street (University Parkway) there are plenty of good restaurants. We just had a well-attended club event at the Stonewood Grill & Tavern to celebrate the opening of the Supercharger Station. Here's a vicinity map.

In addition, the Sarasota Supercharger Stations is only about a mile from UTC (University Town Center) Mall. It is huge and has many fine restaurants, shops and a Tesla store.

Here's a map showing the Supercharger proximity in relation to the UTC mall.

For those who have not been there before, if you are traveling westbound on Gandy...Enter the Wawa from Gandy directly, do not try to turn onto Grand and enter. There is no left turn available from Grand to the parking lot and no U-turns on grand.

According to the supercharger map, there is one planned for Clearwater this year. Keep in mind that the marker on the map is based on the name of the city, not the actual location of the supercharger.

Thanks for the reply. Keep us posted. I live in Brevard but grew up in Clearwater and I come home often. I usually have to stop in Brandon to charge up. I have been to the one in Pinellas Park and I love Wawa (lived in Maryland in the early 90's).

Yep, that's going to be the Clearwater location. A building permit application for superchargers there was just discovered. Further discussion should go in the appropriate thread: Supercharger in St Pete / Clearwater
