Looks like our beloved Wawa may be getting some competition in EHT as plans were recently approved for a new convenience store and gas station on Fire and Tilton roads.

The Press of Atlantic City reports that a new Royal Farms store will open up at the former site of the Lone Star Steakhouse.

Royal Farms has over 178 locations throughout Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania and Virginia. The company already has three New Jersey locations including Gloucester, Bellmawr and Magnolia.

You'll now be able to fill your car with gas, grab a cup of coffee, and place an order of Royal Farms world-famous fried chicken and western fries all in one stop!

Of course if you love all things Wawa (like most South Jersayans), the nearest store in direct competition with the new Royal Farms is just down the street on the Black Horse Pike and Fire Road.
