7-Eleven


image7-Eleven, Inc. Industries

7-Eleven is an international chain of convenience stores that operates, franchises, and licenses some 56,600 stores in 18 countries. The chain was known as Tote'm Stores until renamed in 1946. 7-Eleven Inc. is headquartered in Irving, Texas. Its parent company, Seven-Eleven Japan Co., Ltd., is located in Chiyoda, Tokyo. Seven-Eleven Japan is held by the Seven & I Holdings Co.

The company's first outlets were named "Tote'm Stores" because customers "toted" away their purchases. Some stores featured genuine Alaskan totem poles in front of the store. In 1946, the chain's name was changed from "Tote'm" to "7-Eleven" to reflect the company's new, extended hours, 7:00 am to 11:00 pm, seven days per week. In November 1999, the corporate name of the US company was changed from "The Southland Corporation" to "7-Eleven Inc."

In 1927, Southland Ice Company employee John Jefferson Green began selling eggs, milk, and bread from one of 16 ice house storefronts in Dallas, with permission from one of Southland's founding directors, Joe C. Thompson, Sr. Although small grocery stores and general merchandisers were available, Thompson theorized that selling products such as bread and milk in convenience stores would reduce the need for customers to travel long distances for basic items. He eventually bought the Southland Ice Company and turned it into Southland Corporation, which oversaw several locations in the Dallas area.

In 1928, Jenna Lira brought a totem pole as a souvenir from Alaska and placed it in front of the store. The pole served as a marketing tool for the company, as it attracted a great deal of attention. Soon, executives added totem poles in front of every store and eventually adopted an Inuit-inspired theme for their stores. Later on, the stores began operating under the name "Tote'm Stores". In the same year, the company began constructing gasoline stations in some of its Dallas locations as an experiment. Joe Thompson also provided a distinct characteristic to the company's stores, training the staff so that people would receive the same quality and service in every store. Southland also started to have a uniform for its ice station service boys. This became the major factor in the company's success as a retail convenience store.

16 Handles


image16 Handles

16 Handles is an American brand of self-serve frozen yogurt restaurants headquartered in New York City. There are 42 stores in seven states, all on the East Coast.

16 Handles was founded by Solomon Choi, who serves as president and CEO. In July 2008, Choi opened the first 16 Handles store in the East Village in Manhattan, near the New York University dorms. It was the first self-serve frozen yogurt shop in New York, and the success of the self-serve format spawned hundreds of imitators on the East Coast. In November 2009, Choi opened a second location, at the Garden State Plaza in Paramus, New Jersey. After receiving multiple inquires about franchising opportunities, in 2010 the company began expanding through franchising. By early 2011, there were 10 locations, and as of February 2015, there are 40 locations in 6 states.

In June 2014, 16 Handles announced plans to open 150 stores in the Middle East over the next 10 years in a development deal with Abu Issa Marketing and Distribution, with anticipated stores in Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar, Oman and the United Arab Emirates.

All 16 Handles stores are self-serve, with customers building their own frozen yogurt sundaes and paying by weight. Each location has a rotating roster of 16 frozen yogurt flavors on tap. Flavors include cookies & cream, coffee, fudge brownie, salted caramel, mango, peanut butter, Euro tart, vanilla, chocolate and graham cracker. Over 40 toppings are available, including fruit, candy, syrup, granola, carob chips and yogurt chips. All 16 Handles frozen yogurts are probiotic, and most are also nonfat and gluten-free. Non-dairy sorbet, no-sugar and low-fat options are also available, as well as seasonal menu items, such as a hot cocoa launched in December 2014, and special edition flavors, such as Caramel Popcorn, launched in May 2014 to coincide with the Tony Awards. All of the yogurts and most of the toppings are certified kosher, and some of the locations themselves are certified kosher.

Ampm


imageampm

The ampm brand (rarely "am/pm") is a convenience store chain with branches located in several U.S. states, including Arizona, California, Nevada, Oregon, Washington, recently in Kentucky, Illinois, Indiana, Georgia, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Florida, and in several countries worldwide, formerly including Japan. The ampm brand is owned by BP America, Inc., a subsidiary of BP, which acquired its founding owner, Atlantic Richfield Company (ARCO), in 2000. In the US, the stores are usually attached to an ARCO or BP-branded gas station. The first location opened in Southern California in 1978.

With the division of ARCO between BP and Tesoro, West Coast franchising rights were split between BP (Washington, Oregon and Northern California) and Tesoro subsidiary company Treasure Franchise Company LLC (Arizona, Nevada, Utah and Southern California).

Franchised and BP-owned units of ampm are also found in parts of Mexico, usually co-located with a Pemex which is the only company that provides gas, and Brazil, usually attached with an Ipiranga station. In Argentina and Chile they can be found in Repsol-YPF/ACA stations.

In Spring 2008, U.S. branches of the BP Connect brand of convenience stores rebranded to ampm, which also brought the brand under the BP banner after exclusively being under the ARCO banner. The subsequent decision saw markets with a large BP presence, such as Chicago, Cleveland, Indianapolis, Orlando, and Pittsburgh, instantly have ampm stores and subsequent TV ads in those markets, in order to establish the brand.
