He went into the Wawa for a hoagie on Halloween 18 years ago and he came out with a wife!

Recently I wrote a story about finding love at your local Wawa. One of my Facebook friends suggested Wawa might be the best place to find your new love. You can check out that story here.

I wondered if anyone's love story actually began at Wawa.

It didn't take long to find our Wawa love story.

Roxanne Nixon says it was Halloween 18 years ago when she was working at the (now closed) Wawa at Fire Road at Delilah Road in Egg Harbor Township. It was before the super Wawas of today. Since that location has closed Super Wawas have sprung up at Fire Road and the Black Horse Pike, and further down on Delilah Road.

Roxanne said it was on that day, while she was working that Ryan came in and ordered a roast beef hoagie, with yellow mustard and provolone cheese. What began as a simple Wawa deli ordered blossomed into love.

Congratulations to the Nixons, who really "gotta love Wawa!"
