With the opening of the Burpengary store in Queensland’s Moreton Bay region, 7-Eleven has raised its total fuel-store count in Australia to 500, and its total network size to more than 670 stores.
According to 7-Eleven’s General Manager Retail Operations Braeden Lord, the Burpengary store is just one of 40 new stores to be opened by the end of 2017.
“We’re experiencing solid growth in our network with 40 stores opening this calendar year, about half of those in Queensland,” he said. “We have another approximately 40 stores planned for 2018. The combination of our customer-focused convenience offer, quality Mobil brand fuels, and the wonderful team members in our stores, positions us well to continue to grow our network.”
Mr Lord says the company is constantly innovating, putting the customer’s changing needs first.
“Our customers want choice and convenience, and we’ll continue to provide it for them,” he said. “As a business, we’re investing to develop new products and services, and we also look for opportunities to work with our suppliers to bring new offers and innovations to the channel.
“It’s a real focus for us to not only offer the products and services consumers expect from us today, such as snacks, drinks and quality fuels, but also to be looking to what they might want from us in the future, such as food on the go including healthy options, and in-store services such as parcel lockers and digital products.”.
7-Eleven’s Burpengary store offers the 7-Eleven Iced Coffee, giving customers the opportunity to make their own drinks using freshly ground coffee and fresh cold milk, and the new 7-Eleven sushi range.
Also on offer are fresh sandwiches, Krispy Kreme doughnuts, hot pastries, ‘sweet treats’, fruit, $1 coffees, Slurpees and Slurpee Zilched, and the brand’s full fresh food and convenience range.
