Most franchise systems require royalty payments based on a percentage of base sales. With the 7‑Eleven system, we share gross profits with our franchise owners, which is sales receipts less the cost of the merchandise sold.

Under this system, 7‑Eleven’s loyalty is tied to profitable sales rather than just sales. That's why 7‑Eleven goes beyond helping you increase sales by giving you the tools and resources you can use to increase your profitability.

7‑Eleven is always looking for candidates who possess the ideal mix of personal qualities, professional experience and financial standing to successfully operate a 7‑Eleven franchise. For more details, please visit our qualifications page.

7‑Eleven is committed to actively promoting diversity in its franchise system.

7‑Eleven has an internal financing program that can provide up to 65% financing on our initial franchise fee. This kind of support is rare in the franchise industry. In addition to the financing we have available, 7‑Eleven may occasionally provide additional financing options to qualified applicants. A Franchise Sales Representative can provide information on the details and availability of these programs.

Yes. 7‑Eleven provides a discounted franchise fee plus other financial support to qualified United States military veterans. Visit our veterans page for more details.

How much money you make will depend on a lot of factors, including how well you:

  • Satisfy your customers’ needs by providing product assortment, value, quality, service, and a clean, safe and friendly environment
  • Implement all 7‑Eleven operating principles
  • Recruit and develop a top-rate, customer-focused store staff that can effectively communicate with your customers
  • Monitor your sales trends while managing your expenses

In most states, the 7‑Eleven Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD) provides some historical financial performance data for existing stores.

7‑Eleven provides all interested candidates with a copy of the FDD. If you'd like to obtain a copy, please complete an application to get the process started.

7‑Eleven has a unique approach to store development. Unlike most franchise systems that require franchisees to develop their stores, 7‑Eleven provides fully stocked stores.

In the case of our single-store and multi-unit traditional franchise programs, 7‑Eleven obtains and bears the ongoing cost of the land, building and store equipment. Because Business Conversion Program franchisees retain control of their land and building, they are responsible for some of their own land and building improvement costs during the conversion process, but they benefit from 7‑Eleven’s development team in the streamlined conversion of their store.

Because our customers have come to rely on our stores to meet their needs and their schedules, all 7‑Eleven stores operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, where allowed by law.

  • ATMs

  • Cappuccino machine
