Chain convenience store Wawa unveils its latest D.C. location this week, debuting custom salads, milkshakes, and a limited edition latte named after Georgetown University’s bulldog mascot.

A roadside fixture throughout Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Northern Virginia, Wawa is scheduled to open at 1222 Wisconsin Avenue NW at 8 a.m. on Thursday, December 20. The Georgetown location will offer free coffee for customers through its first weekend of business.

The opening comes nearly a year to date since the brand entered the D.C. market downtown at 1111 19th Street NW. The company previously announced plans to add three- to four dozen additional locations in the District over the long term. Locations for Adams Morgan location and Columbia Heights are in the works.

To commemorate Wawa’s arrival near Georgetown, a new Bulldog Double Shot latte (iced or hot) is available at its touchscreen ordering counters. The themed drink is filled with salted caramel, a double shot of espresso, whipped cream, and blue and silver sprinkles. It will be available during the store’s first three months of operation.

The 7,000-square-foot convenience store is open 24/7 and sports Wawa’s new urban interior design. Free Wi-Fi encourages study sessions.

The first 200 customers through the door at 8 a.m. get free T-shirts, and Wawa’s charitable arm will announce a new community partnership with MedStar Medical/Surgical Pavilion at the Georgetown Lombardi Cancer Center.
