Franchise Process

Your 7-Eleven Journey

Franchising with 7‑Eleven is a smart move. In just three to six months, you can be holding the keys to your stores. You’ll have access to a Franchise Sales Representative who will answer your questions and walk you through every step of the process.

If you’re looking to grow your business with a winner, we want you on our team. They’re not requirements, but if you have experience with any of the following, we’d love to talk to you.

  • Multi-unit Franchising
  • 5-10 years of multi-unit management experience, preferably in convenience, retail or foodservice industries
  • Service in a branch of the U.S. military (not mandatory)

Step 1

Review your qualifications

To franchise with 7-Eleven, you must:

  • Have U.S. citizenship (or permanent residency) and be at least 21 years old
  • Pass a comprehensive background check
  • Not have any other business interests that, in the opinion of 7‑Eleven, might jeopardize your opportunity to successfully implement the 7‑Eleven business concept
