TAMPA, FL (WFLA) -

One more Wawa store opens its doors Wednesday morning near USF Tampa campus. This is the first Wawa store in the Tampa city limits and the second store to open in the area in the last few weeks.

The event organizers said, they expect Hillsborough County Commissioner Sandy Murman to join Rocky the Bull Mascot at the opening. They invited USF Show Band and Cheerleaders to set the mood for the ceremony.

Tampa Fire and Police Departments will compete in building a hoagie. All the proceeds from the competition will go to the local charities.

The new store is at 2901 E. Fowler Ave. The opening is planned to begin at 9:30 this morning.
