Who to contact about a commercial account?

I live in the Tampa area and there are two Wawa's going up, one less than a mile from my home. Who would be the appropriate people to contact? Should I e mail corporate? I've never done anything like this before so I'm really not sure where to start.

First I'd start by asking what the hell a "Wawa" is?

Wawa is kind of like 7-11, or Quck Check or whatever you have in your area.

Convenience store and most now have gas stations.

Corporate is in PA, there are tons of Wawas in NJ and PA. I know for a fact ALL of them in NJ/PA are corporate owned, none are franchised. So you will prob need a corp contact.

Maybe walk into one and ask to speak with a manager?

Thanks for the help guys! I'll walk into one that's already opened and ask the manager.

How did this work out for you OP?

Curious because we have a ton of them around ere and wouldn't mind doing them myself, but some are really spread out so it may be difficult...

I have never been able to figure out the guys that travel all over to do work. True story we used to linestripe two walmart stores here yearly then all of the sudden they found out that corporate has one company that stripes all wallmart stores nationwide. The irony is manager had become friends with me and he told me what they charged it was less for entire store than what we charged for curb and firelane. We were buying paint for 42.00 a bucket so no way they were getting paint much cheaper. One thing for sure there work sucked free handed arrows for example.
