7-Eleven invite people to present innovative products and services

7-Eleven, Inc. has announced that it is on the look-out for innovative products and services and to achieve this is holding an invitation-only ‘Innovation event’ this June. It is, it says, inviting suppliers, vendors and manufacturers to apply to participate in its third Innovation event which is being held at its headquarters in Dallas on June 10-11, 2008. During the event, finalists will be given the opportunity to present their ideas to the company’s senior merchandising team.

Kevin Elliott, 7-Eleven’s senior vice president of merchandising and logistics, commented on this, saying, “When we last held this event in 2002, we received some 400 applications and selected 15 companies for face-to-face reviews. We want to expand the program to two days and bring more products, services and capabilities that meet the ever-changing needs of our convenience-oriented customers.” According to Elliott, the 7-Eleven franchise receives thousands of new ideas each year, while the company introduces at least 25 new products to its stores each week.

7-Eleven, Inc. is a well-known name in the convenience retailing industry and is celebrating its 81st anniversary this year. Based in Dallas, Texas, 7-Eleven operates, franchises or licenses approximately 7,500 7-Eleven® stores in North America. Globally, 7-Eleven operates, franchises or licenses close to 34,000 stores in 17 countries. The Innovation Day application form and criteria are available at 7-Eleven’s web site, www.7-Eleven.com.
