Company Description

While 7-Eleven is one of the largest franchises in the world in terms of sales and stands alone in the Top 200+ in terms of worldwide units. The franchise gets its name from its original operating hours—7 a.m. to 11 p.m.—although it is currently open 24/7.

A convenience store chain offering snacks, drinks and hot foods, 7-Eleven is known for its large “Slurpees,” which are free on July 11 each year. It claims to be the first convenience store to sell gas, offer ATM services and sell coffee to go.

While company headquarters are still in Dallas, Texas, 7-Eleven is owned by Tokyo-based Seven-Eleven, which is in turn owned by the Japanese holding company Seven & I Holdings.
