Federal Donuts Chef and Wawa Paired Up for a Limited Edition Hoagie

The “Broad Street Hoagie” is available at 15 Center City Wawa locations

Alexandra Hawkins

Esteemed Philadelphia chef Mike Solomonov, of Federal Donuts and The Rooster, has teamed up with Wawa to launch a limited edition recipe sandwich available starting today.

The partnership is part of a charitable campaign called “Hoagies for Hope,” in which up to $10,000 of the proceeds from sales of the specialty sandwich will be donated to Broad Street Ministry, a hospitality and community engagement organization devoted to empowering Philadelphia’s most vulnerable communities.

Solomonov worked with Wawa Culinary Manager Farley Kaiser to craft the sandwich, aptly named “The Broad Street Hoagie.” The sandwich, based on a toasted Amoroso roll, is topped with provolone, garlic aioli, cherry pepper relish, meatballs, and parmesan cheese. And it’s now available at The Rooster and across fifteen Center City Wawa locations until April 30.

Solomonov says he’s “fired up” about the partnership and the release of the sandwich — an excitement that stems in part from his passion for Broad Street Ministry, the recipient of all the proceeds of his Jewish deli The Rooster, and in part from his love for Wawa’s hoagies.

“I consistently call Wawa the gastronomic security blanket of Eastern Pennsylvania,” Solomonov said in a statement to the press. “Wawa’s meatball hoagies have been a solid staple of my diet since as far back as I can remember.”

And for staff at Wawa, partnering with a critically-acclaimed chef like Solomonov is an honour in itself. His “innovative approach” is “inspiring,” Mike Sherlock, Chief Product Marketing Officer at Wawa said in the statement. “We at Wawa feel privileged to contribute to their impactful mission.”
