The international convenience store franchise, which was founded in Dallas, Texas in 1927 by ‘Uncle Johnny’ Jefferson Green, opens a unit somewhere in the world approximately every 3.5 hours.
“7-Eleven’s iconic orange, green and red stripes are easily recognized in 17 countries around the world,” said Joe DePinto, 7-Eleven president and CEO. “The company got its start because an entrepreneurial ice dock employee saw his customers had a need and came up with a creative way to serve them.
“A lot has changed in how, when and where 7-Eleven does business. But one thing that hasn’t changed is our commitment to put customers at the forefront of all we do.”
Now based in Irving, Texas, 7-Eleven operates, franchises and licenses more than 70,000 stores in 17 countries, including 11,800 in North America.
