Founded in 1927 as an ice house storefront in Dallas, the 7-Eleven brand has expanded worldwide and become synonymous with the phrase “convenience store.” 7‑Eleven, which was Convenience Store Decisions’ 2005 Chain of the Year, has a legacy of innovation in convenience retail. It was the first to provide to-go coffee cups, offer a self-serve soda fountain, operate for 24 hours a day.
Today, the company is the largest operator in the United States, thanks to several key acquisitions, including Sunoco and Speedway. Retail innovation has been a major focus for 7-Eleven in recent years not only through the company’s successful flight of the United States’ first commercial drone delivery, but also the relentless focus on off-premise sales through the 7NOW delivery app.
