7-Eleven faces some delays on the road to franchising
from Convenience Store News
The year was 2007 and 7-Eleven Inc. announced its intent to get out of running its own stores and instead move entirely to a franchised operation. The nation's largest convenience store chain targeted 2013 as the year when this vision would come to fruition. It's now 2014 and 7-Eleven acknowledges it not fully franchised, but affirms that it is growing its franchise base every day. Currently, 75 percent of its U.S. stores are operated by independent franchisees. Before launching its franchising endeavor, that figure stood at about 60 percent.
