A major investment into its supply chain model made early last year is allowing 7-Eleven the opportunity for rapid expansion and the ability to bring its model to more regional communities.
7-Eleven has already grown into Australian regional centres including Toowoomba, Bathurst and Ballarat and in 2021 there will be further growth across regional Victoria.
One of the latest Victorian regional sites to open was in Colac on the corner of Murray and Scott Streets, and led by Colac local Cameron Gibson (pictured). The store will contribute at least 10 new jobs to the area.
Braeden Lord, 7-Eleven’s General Manager of Retail Operations, said the local Colac community has made them feel very welcome.
“Thanks to our new supply chain capability, it’s exciting that we’re able to unlock new opportunities like this and bring the unique 7-Eleven offer to more regional communities.”
With more than 216 stores owned and operated by small family businesses and 3,200 staff employed across the Victorian store network and support office, Lord said he was proud that 7-Eleven continued to provide new career opportunities across the state.
Further growth is expected across regional Victoria in 2021, with potential growth areas including the Western District and Gippsland.
