has now introduced a cool little computerized
to their stores. Basically, instead of actual human interaction with the Wawa employees who make the hoagies, you can order your hoagie
(or hot sandwich
, cold sandwich
, etc - hoagies are the top choice though) from a computer console
. This console has tons of options (Ex:
Do you want a Little Bit Of Oil, Oil, or A Lot Of Oil?). You tap the options you want, hit "Finished
", and the console prints out a typed order form
with a number
You then hand this to the checkout guy, and pay for your hoagie. He stamps your order form with a "PAID" stamp - you've now paid for your hoagie, and the hoagie-makers have looked on their computer screens and seen something like: 'Hey, TOM wants a Classic Italian with oil, mustard, and a LOT of pickles.' They'll then make your hoagie, put it on the counter, and yell the number that's on your order form. Accordingly, you take your hoagie, put your paid-for order form in a little bin, and get the hell out of Wawa with your hard-earned booty. Ah, the benefits of technology..
All information from the inner depths of my Wawa-loving brain.
