This should have happened more than a week ago, right?
Were people really going into Wawa and touching the screen and ordering food, paying at the register, and then walking out the door? No wonder an employee at the Aramingo location tested positive for COVID-19.
Wawa says they will be temporarily suspending their made-to-order food service in Philadelphia in an effort to limit crowds and encourage social distancing.
Officials tell Action News that the change went into effect at 42 Philadelphia Wawa stores starting Friday at 5 a.m.
“Following recent guidance from Philadelphia City officials, beginning March 27th, we are temporarily suspending built-to-order custom food service ordering in our Philadelphia stores. To help offset this temporary change, we are expanding our express offer of both hot and cold foods to include more options,” said Wawa in a statement.
The company said, although in-store ordering is suspended, Wawa hoagies are still available in all Philly stores as an express grab and go item.
This is for Philly stores only, but should be extended to every location, be it Jersey, Florida, Delaware, whatever. Why fuck around?
I just wonder how much this really helps, since they’re still going to be making hoagies and putting them in those express cases, where you find the pre-packaged salads and sandwiches and wraps. The idea is that people are spending less time in the store and keeping proper distance, but we should probably heed the advice of Negan from The Walking Dead and just shut that shit down:
