    I haven't seen any announcements on this but the supercharger info site lists a new location in Pinellas Park, Fl 3101 Gandy Blvd. This is a large WaWa. Interesting development I think.

    There's at least one WaWa in Virginia I'm holding out hope for.

    Growing up in South Jersey, Wawa is in my DNA. But after moving to Boston and now Connecticut, there isn't a Wawa to be found anywhere. The closest one is off the NJTP.

    When Wawa expanded to Florida, where my brother and niece live (who both LOVE Wawa), it was a dagger to the heart.

    And now they're adding Superchargers? When will the torture end?

    Wawa, if you're reading this.. PLEASE expand into New England.

    :)

    A Supercharger in Wawa, Ontario? This would be great as it would be the start of the Trans Canada route through Northern Ontario!

    Having lived in VA for a while, I was there when WaWa invaded. Awesome place....the parking lots can get crazy at times....LOL



    Only problem is, New England is Cumby's territory. That would start a turf war...and it didn't end well for Krispy Kreme when they showed up in Dunks' territory.

    Thanks for the tip! We knew that one was coming to the area, but not the exact location of it. Tesla never officially announces new superchargers until well after they are open.

    I started a thread in the Florida section with some pictures I took at lunchtime today.

    The other chain we heard news in is RubyTuesday , there was an announcement about Tesla chargers going onto its sites nationwide but that was over a year ago.
    We have a RubyTuesday here in Warrenton Va it's right on rt 29 and would make a great site.
    I see some serious utility work on the site but it doesn't apppear to be for superchargers, though I did have my hopes up.
    We have. WaWa too. Always have lots of power transformers in the lot you think it could be done.

    Wow! Wawa corporate style really likes exclamation points! She even used one in the one customized sentence in her form letter ("I believe offering a charging station for our customers is a great idea!")! Someone must have told them that explanation points show that they care!

    I could use some Wawas out here in California. I grew up in Delaware, so I also have plenty of Wawa in my blood. I'll omit the story about when someone drew blood in the Wawa parking lot during my high school days.

    Also: sorry for the 6 month feedback loop here.

    Been there done that. I was driving to homecoming in VA and noticed a supercharger icon on my car while passing the Glen Allen location. I decided to check it out. WaWA Supercharger VA

    Lewes De and Orlando Fl are 2 Wawa stores I am familiar with that have S.C.rs
    Tesla has announced a program to place S.C.rs at several Hotel Chains as well.
    As time goes on there will be chargers all over the place BC there is money to be made.
