7-Eleven® launches Women’s Franchise Giveaway Contest

Several prime locations available for franchise in the Southeast

Charlotte, N.C. – 7-Eleven, Inc., the world’s largest convenience retailer, is seeking applicants for its ‘W.E. Take the Lead’ Women’s Franchise Giveaway Contest. The company, hoping to offer female entrepreneurs a fee-free franchise location, has several franchise opportunities available in the Southeast, with prime locations in Virginia, W. Virginia, and both North and South Carolina.

7-Eleven opened the contest in March, in conjunction with National Women’s Month, to all eligible women interested in becoming an independent business owner with the world’s largest convenience retailer. One deserving woman will be awarded an initial franchise fee-free* 7-Eleven franchise, for an initial franchise fee value of up to $190,000.  This is the second year 7-Eleven has targeted women for the franchise giveaway.  The multiphase contest includes submitting a detailed franchise application, meeting company franchising qualifications, preliminary interviews, a video submission, an in-store hands-on experience, and a final one-on-one interview with 7-Eleven senior leadership for the top finalists, all of which will occur over an eight-month period.

“We had such an incredible response last year that we’re excited to open the contest again to women interested in joining the 7-Eleven team,” said Brian Mulcahy, 7-Eleven franchise sales representative. “7-Eleven is a big supporter of women entrepreneurship, and we want to give women more opportunities to thrive within the communities in which we operate.”

 

Ramandeep “Remy” Kaur, who has owned and operated a 7-Eleven store in Charlotte, N.C., for the past two years, commented, “I was inspired to pursue ownership after hearing other female franchisees who spoke very highly of the company. I also wanted to move away from the corporate work world, but liked the idea of having the support of a large organization behind me.” A native of Punjab, India, Kaur has lived in the United States for the past 21 years. Notably, she has won eight 7-Eleven Retailer Initiative Awards for Food and Sales Growth in the Market. She further said, “I love the people I work with. They are like family, not workers, and with everyone’s efforts, this has been a financially rewarding experience.”

Lorena Trivino, a native of Cali, Columbia, is another successful 7-Eleven franchisee in Charlotte. She just opened a store this month after having spent 13 years with the company as both an assistant manager and as a manager. She said, “Many of my relatives are business owners, including my father back in Columbia. This is something I always wanted to do, and after seeing others succeed in going from manager to owner, I was convinced that this was the right thing for me.”

Interested women can enter online at Franchise.7-eleven.com/franchise/we-take-the-lead now through 11:59 p.m. CDT on May 7, 2018. The winner will be announced in October 2018. To qualify, an entrant must be age 21 or older, a legal resident of the U.S., have sufficient financial resources, be able to move, at their own expense, to an area with 7-Eleven convenience stores available for franchising, have excellent credit and at least three years of leadership, retail or restaurant experience, and meet 7-Eleven’s new franchisee qualifications. Contestants will go through the same qualification process as all 7-Eleven franchise applicants including, but not limited to, credit evaluation, background check, a leadership test, business plan development, budget and store location preferences. Please refer to the contest’s Official Rules for a full description of all eligibility requirements for entering the contest.

In addition, 7-Eleven will make a donation to the winning woman’s charity of choice that aligns with the 7-Eleven Project A-Game® grant program. Project A-Game funds youth programs focused on education, fitness, safety and hunger relief.

This year marks the 54th year of franchising for the world’s largest convenience store, and today, franchisees operate almost 90 percent of the 7-Eleven stores across the U.S.

The company also offers discounts to veterans interested in business ownership. An interactive map at http://franchise.7-eleven.com/franchise/franchises-for-sale indicates stores available for franchising.

*The maximum value of the initial franchise fee will be up to $190,000.  The winner will be required to pay any portion of the initial franchise fee for a store they select that is more than $190,000.  There are additional fees and expenses that the contest winner will be required to pay as part of franchising a 7-Eleven convenience store in addition to the initial franchise fee.  Please refer to 7-Eleven’s Franchise Disclosure Document for a full description of all fees and costs associated with acquiring a 7-Eleven convenience store franchise.
