AT&T is going to help make sure you get that hoagie of yours.

Our beloved Wawa transitioned much of its IT infrastructure to an operation fully managed by AT&T yesterday, according to a company press release.

The mini-mart retailer signed a new five-year contract with AT&T to migrate and host its existing SAP applications, which consists of more than 30 servers used by more than 15,000 employees across the region. Wawa first began using SAP for its retail IT in 2005.

Wawa has grown from a small milk-delivery company to the region’s third largest food merchant in its 45 years. For a large chain, most customer love remains high. Now if only they’d come back to Philadelphia in a big way.

The full integration of AT&T management was scheduled to happen within 18 hours, so if you pop in today for coffee, you can thank the Dallas, Texas-based telecommunications behemoth.
