7-Eleven is among the world’s largest and most widely recognized and iconic retailers, both inside and outside the c-store channel. The company’s iconic Slurpee, Big Gulp soft drinks and fresh-made coffees have helped 7-Eleven grow throughout North America and in several countries overseas. In May, the retailer debuted nearly 100 new food and beverage products in 125 stores in Los Angeles as part of its new “Sips & Snacks That Love You Back” campaign. The launch features items from 31 up-and-coming brands with keto, paleo, vegan, organic, gluten-free, plant-based and other better-for-you attributes. With a stated goal to reach more than 10,000 sites in the U.S., the company has grown by acquisitions big and small, as well as new builds. Its deal to purchase more than 1,000 stores from Philadelphia-based Sunoco closed in January 2018, and the company has continued to grow since. For management purposes, corporate and franchised North American stores are organized into geographical zones. 7-Eleven Inc. is a wholly owned subsidiary of Tokyo-based Seven & i Holdings Co., which is publicly traded on the Tokyo Stock Exchange.
