We strive to be the first choice for convenience for our customers – anytime, anywhere. To do that, we make our customers‘ day a little more awesome by delivering fast, personalized convenience – when, where, and how they want it.
To lead, we serve. 7-Eleven has always been about serving the needs of others – which is why customer obsession and servant leadership is at the core of everything we do. We live by our Values and Leadership Principles so we can best serve our customers, our stores, our Franchisees, and our communities – every single day.
As the world’s first convenience store, our top priority has always been to give customers the most convenient experience possible to consistently meet their needs. 7-Eleven aims to be a one-stop shop for consumers – a place people can always rely on to deliver what they want, when, where, and how they want it. This goal continues to shape 7-Eleven’s ethos, driving 7-Eleven’s expansion into operating Speedway®, Stripes®, Laredo Taco Company®, and Raise the Roost® Chicken and Biscuits, with locations, as well as proprietary products and services including 7NOW®, 7Rewards®, Speedy Rewards®, and 7–Eleven Fleet™, throughout the U.S.
7-Eleven, Inc. is the premier name in the convenience-retailing industry. Based in Irving, Texas, 7-Eleven operates, franchises and/or licenses more than 13,000 stores in the U.S. and Canada. In addition to 7‑Eleven stores, 7-Eleven, Inc. operates and franchises Speedway®, Stripes®, Laredo Taco Company® and Raise the Roost® Chicken and Biscuits locations.
Speedway operates in 36 states across the U.S., predominately in the Midwest and East Coast. In May 2021, 7-Eleven acquired 3,800 Speedway Stores from Marathon Petroleum Corp., increasing 7-Eleven’s total number of stores to more than 13,000 in the U.S. and Canada and allowing 7-Eleven to bring convenience to more customers than ever before.
Stripes Convenience Stores operates predominantly in Texas and Louisiana. Food offerings are available in more than 450 of its stores, primarily under the proprietary Laredo Taco Company® brand. In January 2018, 7‑Eleven acquired 1,030 Stripes Stores.
Laredo Taco Company is 7-Eleven’s take on authentic Mexican food, and is famous for its authentic tacos, which are served on flour tortillas made fresh every day, and its salsa bar offering a wide selection of salsas and pico de gallo. Customers can find specialty tacos and meals that are not always seen in quick-serve Mexican restaurants, such as authentic barbacoa, chorizo, carne asada, carnitas, and breakfast tacos made with fresh-cracked eggs.
Raise the Roost Chicken & Biscuits is 7‑Eleven’s Southern-inspired chicken concept restaurant. Billed as “Chicken Worth Crossing the Road For,” Raise the Roost Chicken & Biscuits presents a simple menu with made-to-order and grab-and-go options: fried chicken tenders hand-breaded with a proprietary blend of Southern spices, flaky, freshly baked biscuits, bone-in and boneless wings handspun with “made in coop” sauces, chicken sandwiches, and breakfast sandwiches.
Through 7NOW® and third-party delivery providers, we offer best-in-class delivery of food, convenience, and grocery items.
