The Delaware Business Ledger reports that Wawa Inc. this month surpassed 1 billion ATM transactions via Wawa's surcharge-free PNC ATMs. Wawa ATMs are located 572 store locations in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland and Virginia.
"While most people associate Wawa with quality products and the coffee and hoagies they can't live without, for many customers, Wawa's surcharge-free ATMs are a way of life," said Howard Stoeckel, Wawa CEO. "In fact, we have three times the traffic to ATMs in our stores than all other banks in the region have to their ATMs. Our ATMs have truly become a source of convenience and savings that our customers can't live without and we are thrilled to celebrate our commitment to providing customers with the highest level of value and convenience possible."
Wawa began its banking partnership with PNC Bank in 1985. In 1996, Wawa implemented its surcharge-free ATM program in all stores, never imposing an upfront surcharge. Since then, Wawa has been providing surcharge-free transactions to all of its customers in five states.
