7-Eleven is a retail store that has defined the phrase ‘convenience store.’ The company’s origins in 1927 were as an ice house that began selling regular consumer items like bread and milk. Today, 7-Eleven is the go-to convenience store for food, drinks, fuel, and more. Well known for their recognizable Slurpee and Big Gulp drink they were also the first to offer “to-go” coffee, as well as being open 24 hours. Now the company is pushing through digital initiatives, including apps and quick pay options as well as delivery options, to move into the future.
