LOS ANGELES -- 7-Eleven Inc. is teaming up with the Charo Community Development Corp. and other national community and business organizations to deliver business seminars designed to recruit more African American, Asian and Latino franchisees.
The meeting offers attendees the opportunity to hear from successful franchisees and review candidate criteria and policies, as well as sample 7-Eleven's fresh food products.
The seminars, Franchising Offers Real Success (FORS), will be held Oct. 24 at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles. Admission is free and registration is required by Oct. 18.
"7-Eleven owes much of its success to franchising," said Cynthia Davis, vice president of 7-Eleven's operations in Southern California. "We provide an opportunity for people with moderate financial resources and retailing experience to operate their own convenience store. In turn, franchisees' hard work and commitment contributes to their success and ultimately, ours."
More than 3,200 7-Eleven stores in the United States are operated by franchisees who receive assistance and support from the company through training, consulting and advertising, Davis said. 7-Eleven, Inc., which is observing its 75th anniversary, operates 5,800 stores in the United States and Canada and licenses approximately 17,000 stores in 17 other countries worldwide.
