Business Experience:

7-Eleven is seeking franchise candidates that are looking for an exciting business opportunity that's full of growth potential. 7-Eleven asks that candidates meet the following criteria before being considered to franchise a 7-Eleven:

  • Be 21 years of age or older
  • Prove permanent residency in the United States
  • We prefer you have retail, management and/or customer service - related business experience within the United States
  • Not have filed for bankruptcy within the last seven years
  • Have excellent credit

    These basic qualifications are only half the story. When considering if 7-Eleven is the right choice, candidates should consider if they possess the traits most common to successful 7-Eleven franchisees:

  • Can you manage multiple tasks simultaneously and adapt to market and company changes?
  • Can you hire, train and supervise employees? Are you willing to empower them and delegate responsibilities to them?
  • Are you dedicated to operations excellence? Do you focus on the details?
  • Are you committed to creating and managing an organization that effectively recruits, trains, retains and motivates people?
  • Do you have a strong desire to build incremental income through execution and the ability to implement company programs and strategies?
  • Do you have food service management or retail experience?
  • Can you deliver an exceptional customer experience while maintaining a commitment to the core values of 7-Eleven?
  • Do you support and understand your local community? Do you have strong ties to your community?

  • Your income potential as a 7-Eleven Franchise entrepreneur depends vastly on many factors. As an entrepreneur, the goals to achieve are related to expanding sales while lowering your operation costs and increasing the quality of your products and or services. Each month your operating costs can include royalty fees, mortgage / rent, supplies for products, staffing, utilities, bookwork, stationary and other items. From one month to the next, you may find your costs fluctuate, but your up-front costs are, for the most part, fixed and they will cover most of the initial setup of equipment, signage and renovations.
