The FranchiseHelp Brief

What is it?
  • Let’s be honest - you and I both know that you know 7-Eleven. It’s the world’s no. 1 convenience store and an iconic global brand
  • Their franchise system is designed as a turnkey package — combining store, land and equipment — which makes for fast startup (3-6 months)
  • Single store, multi-store, and business conversion (of an existing convenience store) opportunities are available
How does it make money?
  • In-store sales of branded and 7-SELECT private label goods
  • The stores produce revenue 24/7
Who is it for?
  • A category leader like 7-Eleven is a repeatable business system built to be executed a specific way, not a blank slate for entrepreneurial creativity. The positives are a proven, step-by-step plan, extensive training and support, and built-in brand recognition and customer loyalty. The downsides are limited flexibility and room for individual creativity. So it comes down to what you want in a business.
  • Ideal for people who prefer a turnkey model, meaning a franchise that is sold to a franchisee as a package, with store, land, and equipment ready for operation
  • Retail, operations or management experience is a plus
  • 7-Eleven makes special programs and offers available for military veterans
  • The financial requirements are modest for a retail brand at $50,000 to get started
What would you do as a franchisee?
  • Execute the business plan, including maintaining relevant licenses
  • Manage a team of store employees
  • This is a hands-on business, meaning you would be involved in overseeing day-to-day store operations or a team of managers for your stores

“Franchising is a reality we never expected – and we love it! 7-Eleven incentives allow any dedicated and business-minded individual the opportunity to own a business. For us, it was an opportunity too good to pass up. We’re on a first-name basis with our customers, we love our employees and we’re proud of our store. When you love what you do, sometimes it makes it a little harder to go home at night!” – Brian and Theresa Green, military veterans, 7-Eleven Franchisees
