Florida is reportedly part of Wawa's long-term expansion plans.

Driving the news: The convenience store — known for its popular food offerings — plans to add as many as 280 new stores over the next decade in North Carolina, Tennessee, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky, Bloomberg recently reported.

  • Wawa did not respond to a request for comment about specific store openings.

Zoom in: Wawa debuted in Miami in 2019 and has a total of 11 stores in Miami-Dade County, mostly in West and South Dade.

What we're watching: When will Miami get a Wawa east of Biscayne Boulevard?

Editor's note: This story has been corrected to reflect there is a Wawa east of I-95 in North Dade, but none east of Biscayne Boulevard.
