7‑Eleven® is giving away a franchise to one deserving (and incredibly lucky) U.S. military veteran. Enter OPERATION: TAKE COMMAND for a chance to win a franchise with the world's #1 convenience store!
According to MilitaryTimes.com the initiative is a multiphased competition that includes meeting 7-Eleven's franchising qualifications, interviews, a Facebook video contest by 10 preliminary finalists and an interview with 7-Eleven President and CEO Joe DePinto for three finalists.
The competition is for first-time prospective franchisees -- veterans who do not already franchise a 7-Eleven store.
"I can think of no one more deserving of this extraordinary opportunity to win a 7-Eleven franchise than one of our military veterans who has given so much for our country," said DePinto, a graduate of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point and former Army officer.
"7-Eleven is a winner, too, because veterans bring top-notch leadership skills, a can-do attitude and mission-oriented focus to their business. Our experience has shown that U.S. veterans have the desire, ambition and core values needed to be successful 7-Eleven franchisees."
The franchise giveaway competition began on Veterans Day and will run through April 23, when the winning veteran will be announced.
