(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL) – The opening of the new WAWA gas station opening on the intersection of State Road 70 and Lorraine Road has been the talk of the school, with the new station providing everything from homemade cookies to computers that customize orders. For the first 10 days any size coffee or hot chocolate was free. The nearby gas station is filled with Mustangs before and after school.

Senior Nate Minic said, “What I enjoyed the most from WAWA was the free coffee they gave for the grand opening. But since they are no longer having that promotion I like the frapuccino and milkshakes.” Minic said he would rather leave the smoothies to the Smoothie King.

Junior Anthony Costanza  visits WAWA often because he lives near it.

“The cookie dough parfait is my all time favorite item their, and I wouldn’t choose it over anything else,” said Costanza . And with the convenience of WAWA, Costanza expects to benefit from it for a long time.

Sophomore Caitlyn Klein said, “Even though I live of State Road 64 my mom always picks me up my favorite two things from there, which is their paninis and their coffee. The first time I had their coffee I fell in love and knew that they chose a great location for the gas station.”

Freshman Jules Catena is genuinely excited to have WAWA nearby.

“I love the new location,” he said. “It is so close to me home, as well as the our high school. I can go ever so quickly to WAWA with my sister and get some coffee or something and I’m all set for the day.”

This WAWA is open 24 hours and is located on 14604 E State Road 70 Lakewood Ranch, FL 34202 United States.
