Description of franchise system
7-ELEVEN is one of the top convenience store brands in the entire world. They have a long history that goes back over 75 years and the company leaders and franchisees are very proud about what their franchise brand has been able to achieve. For nearly half a century, ever since they made the shrewd business move to buy 127 Speedee Marts in 1964 in California, 7-Eleven has been a forerunner in the convenience store retail industry. They have a business model that works and a long flourishing history of franchise success to prove it.
The 7-Eleven Company has fully embraced the franchise way as their primary way of doing business and growing their brand. 7-Eleven has a strong network of franchise owners that have particular agreements with 7-Eleven, Inc. to own and operate 7-Eleven locations in their own territories. Most agreements function in the following manner: the 7-Eleven Company leases a fully equipped 7-Eleven store location to the franchisee, who then in turn runs the convenient store business, often in conjuncture with the sale of gasoline as well.
This business model has functioned very well for both franchisee and franchisor in the past. It is very convenient for the franchisee and is a prime reason for the brands tremendous success and growth.
When you become a 7-Eleven franchise owner, you will not be left unprepared to run your business. 7-Eleven gives all of their franchisees complete training and continuing support so that you will be able to easily grow your business and operate your store successfully. To begin with, you will benefit from a full 6 weeks of training that includes both the management and operation of your 7-Eleven location. Training comes from experts that know how to make a 7-Eleven store successful and will teach you how to do it.
Additionally, you will also be assigned a dedicated Field Advisor that will visit your store regularly (a minimum of once every week) in order to see how you are doing, provide advice, and answer any questions you may have about all aspects of the business. The Field Advisor is not there to keep tabs on you, only to help you where you need it. And all decisions will be made by you, the franchise owner .
As to assistance with advertising and marketing support, 7-Eleven is the best. Your store will automatically benefit from numerous kinds of marketing and advertising promotions that includes all avenues from point-of-sale signage and print media to broadcasting and TV ads. 7-Eleven will also often support individual franchisees in their own community promotional campaigns. The 7-Eleven Company will also supply you with marketing and financial records every month that are prepared for individual stores and include balance sheets, profit-and-loss reports, and much more.
