ORLANDO, Fla. – It's the company's anniversary, but it wants to give you a gift. Wawa is handing out free coffee Thursday to celebrate its 54th anniversary.

April 12, deemed "Wawa Day" by the franchise, offers customers free coffee for their years of loyalty.

The company has almost 800 stores across the country that are participating in the annual event.
