Why 7-Eleven

We make it easy

We are the convenience leader, so it just makes sense to offer a business model that makes franchising – convenient. It’s all turnkey, which means we deliver everything you need to run your business. Plus, we’re continuously thinking up new ways to help you make franchise ownership easy and profitable. The only thing missing is your vision, good energy and solid work ethic. Bring it!

A gross profit split means we’re invested

Most franchisors take royalties on sales, but 7‑Eleven has a different kind of business model. We share profits with our franchise owners, so we really are invested! We’ve also built all kinds of tools and resources to help you reduce waste and increase gross profits. When you give your best effort, we’ll match it with ours – because your store’s success is as important to us as it is to you.

Three ways to franchise

Our 7‑Eleven franchise model has proven successful for Franchisees with all different kinds of backgrounds and experiences. If you’re interested in franchising with 7‑Eleven, there are three main ways to do it. Take a good look and decide which option is the best fit for you and your experience. If you have questions, don’t hesitate to give us a call!


Single-Store Franchise

Our traditional single-store franchise model is perfect for any entrepreneur interested in starting a career as a business owner. This approach allows Franchisees to open one store and learn the business. Who knows – one store may lead to other locations. It happens all the time!

Start the journey


Multiple-Store Franchise

This option is for people with strong retail and management experience who are interested in diving headfirst into business ownership. The opportunity to open multiple locations isn’t for everyone, but it can be a great way to quickly fulfill larger business ambitions.

Take the next step


Business Conversion Program

Our business conversion program (BCP) is designed for current owners of convenience stores who like the idea of adding the power of the 7‑Eleven brand to their businesses. If you own a local convenience store and are interested in taking your business to the next level, this program is for you.

In addition to our consumer innovations, we’ve invested millions (and millions) into technology that makes operating a store as easy and as profitable as possible. Our proprietary logistics system is an innovation that has revolutionized the way franchise owners can manage their inventory. The system accurately shows what’s selling and what’s not so you can keep your shelves stocked with the products your neighborhood wants. And our comprehensive back-office system helps streamline operations by automating everything from payroll processing and invoice payments to taxes and store audits. Business transformation simplifies the job.
