There well over 8,000 7-Eleven locations in the U.S. and Canada: More than 6,000 are owned and operated by franchisees.
7-Eleven retail franchises are very familiar across most of the U.S. The executive team at 7-Eleven headquarters wants it to be a 100% franchised here.
Can it be done?
Fact: 7-Eleven stores number 53,000+in 16 countries; 87 percent of them are 7-Eleven franchises.
Based on that, 90 7-eleven franchises for sale in New York…actual units being offered for sale, isn’t a number that’s out of line.
7‑Eleven has has won a lot of awards and consistently ranks high in franchising publications-both online and offline.
I mentioned 7-Eleven, myself, in an Entrepreneur magazine feature story about my business and my book.
“If you spend $200,000 on a franchise and think you’re going to be an independent entrepreneur, I think you’re going to be disappointed. Opening up a 7-Eleven is not entrepreneurship; it’s small-business ownership. How creative can you get when your only choice is moving the candy bars from the left side of the cash register to the right?”
Was I a little blunt there? You bet; the truth is the truth.
If you look up sugar-coating over at Dictionary.com, you won’t find a picture of me.
By the way, that feature story can be found on Entrepreneur.com.
