7‑Eleven is the world’s #1 convenience store. Our brand is known and loved around the world and our iconic products are a big part of the American culture. And although we’ve grown like crazy over the years, our focus stays fixed on making life easier for customers. This idea may sound simple, but it’s the reason we’re the marketplace leader today. It’s also why both customers and investors are eager to be part of the 7‑Eleven story.
When you franchise with 7‑Eleven, you become part of a brand that’s recognized around the world. We’re also proud of the fact that we’re consistently ranked as a top-five franchisor.
What started on an ice dock in 1927 has evolved into more than 63,000 stores located in 17 countries around the world. For our franchise owners, that means the 24/7 consumer demand remains robust.
And in a rapidly changing digital world, convenience takes on a brand new meaning. Yes, it’s still about milk and bread, but now it encompasses more – like banking and delivery services, rewards programs and super convenient digital apps. We’re continuously inventing and rethinking ways to stay convenient in a busy, changing world.
With 60,000 store locations and counting, there’s bound to be an available franchise in the community you know best. If not now – stick around. There’s a new store born every three hours
Our focus is convenience – but we're also in the business of service. And that business extends beyond our stores, into the communities where customers live, work and play. As a Franchisee, getting to know your neighbors opens up all kinds of opportunities to serve, not only with a product selection tailored to their needs, but through programs and initiatives that can help enhance the safety, education and health of the entire neighborhood.
We are the convenience leader, so it just makes sense to offer a business model that makes franchising – convenient. It’s all turnkey, which means we deliver everything you need to run your business. Plus, we’re continuously thinking up new ways to help you make franchise ownership easy and profitable. The only thing missing is your vision, good energy and solid work ethic. Bring it!
Most franchisors take royalties on sales, but 7‑Eleven has a different kind of business model. We share profits with our franchise owners, so we really are invested! We’ve also built all kinds of tools and resources to help you reduce waste and increase gross profits. When you give your best effort, we’ll match it with ours – because your store’s success is as important to us as it is to you.
Our 7‑Eleven franchise model has proven successful for Franchisees with all different kinds of backgrounds and experiences. If you’re interested in franchising with 7‑Eleven, there are three main ways to do it. Take a good look and decide which option is the best fit for you and your experience.
Our traditional single-store franchise model is perfect for any entrepreneur interested in starting a career as a business owner. This approach allows Franchisees to open one store and learn the business. Who knows – one store may lead to other locations. It happens all the time!
This option is for people with strong retail and management experience who are interested in diving headfirst into business ownership. The opportunity to open multiple locations isn’t for everyone, but it can be a great way to quickly fulfill larger business ambitions.
