Opening your own 7-Eleven franchise can provide an opportunity to exercise your entrepreneurial spirit while following a proven, standardized startup process.
Opening a franchise reduces much of the risk of starting a business from scratch, and franchises like 7-Eleven, which cater to wide, heterogeneous markets, can do very well in the hands of the right owners.
