The 7-Eleven gas station corporation will give residents an opportunity to learn about franchising one of its many stores next week.
At 5 p.m. Monday, Feb. 24, at the Hampton Inn off Interchange Boulevard, 7-Eleven will host a free seminar about its franchise system, business model and benefits. According to a press release, the company provides the land, building, equipment and a turnkey operation for its franchisees.
There are also a few options for certain individuals.
"Through its military veterans franchise program, qualified veterans who become first-time 7-Eleven franchisees will receive a 10% discount on the franchise fee for the first 7-Eleven store they franchise," the press release reads. "This discount can range from $1,000 up to approximately $35,000, depending on the store. In addition, 7-Eleven also is expanding through its Business Conversion Program, where independent business owners interested in converting their retail operation to a 7-Eleven store can apply to qualify. BCP provides many similar benefits as 7-Eleven’s traditional, individual-store franchise model, while allowing an independent store operator with at least 1,800 square feet of selling space the opportunity to own or lease their store site. Upon agreement, 7-Eleven installs proprietary equipment and assists in converting the store to a 7-Eleven-branded location."
There are three available franchise spots in Ormond Beach: 520 S. Atlantic Ave., 1950 W. Granada Blvd. and 690 S. Nova Road.
