Wawa Lawsuit Forces New Jersey Convenience Store Dawa To Change Its Name

A New Jersey convenience store called Dawa has agreed to change its name after a lawsuit from Wawa.

Court documents filed recently show the stores agreed that the Paterson, New Jersey-based store would change its name, though the filing doesn't specify what it will be called.

Pennsylvania-based Wawa has more than 700 convenience stores in six states and filed a trademark infringement lawsuit early this year against Dawa, saying it's taking advantage of its hard-earned reputation.
