Laurie Hernandez’ big win in Rio could end up being a big win for Wawa, and c-store foodservice in general.
The New Jersey teen won gold with the US team in the all-around competition before winning individual silver on the balance beam. And apparently, she plans to celebrate with a famous Wawa hoagie.
Hernandez’s brother Marcus congratulated her in an Instagram post from New Jersey, saying “As soon as you land we’re going straight to Wawa.”
Wawa, of course, is known for the fresh food offerings in its 700-plus eastern US locations.
