Wawa is celebrating the grand opening of its sixth store in Tampa.
On Wednesday morning at 10, the new store located at 401 N. Dale Mabry Highway will open its doors to the public.
Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn, local officials, heroes, community members and members of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Tampa Bay will be on hand for a ribbon-cutting ceremony.
The Tampa Police and Fire Department will go head to head in a hoagie building competition. The Tampa Fire Department is building on behalf of "The Friends of Tampa Fire Fighters, Inc." to raise money to establish firefighter memorials and programs benefiting the Tampa Bay area.
The Tampa Police Department is building to support Project R.I.C.H. House, a program to provide children with a positive experience including homework assistance, summer camp, annual holiday parties and a food pantry for families in need.
This grand opening continues Wawa's expansion throughout the Florida, as Wawa is set to open 14 additional stores in Florida before year's end -- four in Tampa and 10 in Orlando.
