7-Eleven announced its popular Laredo Taco Company and Raise the Roost Chicken & Biscuits restaurant concepts will now be available in the greater Columbus, Ohio and Cleveland areas. Now officially open to the public, both locations are the first Speedway stores to feature the quick-serve restaurants known for serving up hot and delicious Mexican food and hand-breaded chicken.
“We’re excited to unveil Ohio’s first Laredo Taco Company and Raise the Roost restaurants — the first of many to come in the Midwest,” said Brad Williams, 7-Eleven senior vice president of corporate operations and restaurants. “These locations will continue to provide local customers with the convenience they expect from Speedway, plus great restaurant-quality dining options all in one single stop. We plan to exceed customers’ expectations with both concepts, and all the other great products and services found in Speedway stores across the country.”
