7-Eleven’s strong, sustainable growth continues, with the company opening its 600th store at Gumdale in Queensland on Thursday 2 October, 37 years after the first store opened.
According to Queensland State Operations Manager, Gavin Monaghan, Gumdale locals will be able to take advantage of the brand’s high quality convenience offer. “Gumdale customers can enjoy our iconic Slurpees, and our coffee, anything from a latte to a long black, is made in our quality machines from freshly ground beans. A regular size coffee is $1,” he said.
The store will feature a Mobil branded fuel range, a Bankwest/Commonwealth ATM, public transport ticket and top up facilities, a Moneygram money transfer service as well as traditional convenience offerings such as drinks, sweets, snacks, fresh food, top up groceries, coffee and 7-Eleven’s Slurpee frozen carbonated beverage.
The owners of the store are experienced 7-Eleven Franchisees – Ravi, Upendra and Meher. According to Ravi, the trio are very pleased to have the opportunity to establish a brand new 7-Eleven store.
“This is a great opportunity for us to grow our business with a new store, and it is wonderful to be a part of a milestone store for the company,” Ravi said.
CEO Warren Wilmot said “this milestone for 7-Eleven comes at an exciting time, only weeks before the company’s first store opens in Western Australia, our first new market entry in more than 30 years”. 100 High Street in Fremantle is scheduled to open its doors on 30 October.
