7-Eleven Brimming With Expansion Plans
7-Eleven Inc. is on track to have a record growth year with plans on the drawing board to add more units than it did in 2011. Last year It had 4,600 stores worldwide. Approximately 600 additional stores were built, acquired or transitioned from another business to the 7-Eleven banner in the United States and Canada alone in 2011. The convenience store retailer plans to surpass that stat by adding at least 630 news stores to its portfolios in those two countries by the end of the year.
