Wawa inspires loyalty that isn't even seen in most relationships. People travel well out of their way to get a hoagie from their favorite convenience store. No trip through the mid-Atlantic is complete without at least a few pit stops to everyone's favorite shop. 

Imagine if you crossed 7/11 with Subway, gave it the cult following of Trader Joe's, and then made it infinitely better. That's Wawa. Wawa is a home away from home. Wawa is where dreams really do come true. Wawa has Hoagiefest. Wawa is the best. 

Here's how Saveur writer, and Wawa stan, Carey Jones puts it:

Am I doing Wawa’s bidding in saying so, manipulated by corporate overlords who’ve engineered my entire experience to seem familiar and comforting? Maybe. Probably! But that doesn’t make the sentiment any less real. It may be Wawa Kool-Aid that I’m drinking, but if I can keep finding such joy in a friendly convenience store sandwich chain—refill my cup, please.

Wawa might be a great store but it's still second to Sheetz. Fans say everything Wawa can do, Sheetz can do—and fry it. The gas station has taken trashy fried food and elevated it to an art form. The two stores are pretty similar at a basic level. You order your customized food with a touch screen. Most have a gas pump so you can get your food and refuel your tank at the same time. They're everywhere.  

But when you start paying attention to the details, it's easy to see how Sheetz is better. Everything that Wawa has, Sheetz has more of it. It's open every hour of the day, every day. It has all the food you could want. It has gas at a cheaper price than everyone else. Why would you want to go anywhere but Sheetz?
