I have spent 6 years working as a District Manager (Consultant) for 7-Eleven, Inc.
In that time, I have learned about every aspect of store operations, what it takes to run a successful convenience store, how to maximize store profits, and of course how to cut costs effectively (not at the expense of sales). I even had the pleasure of being selected to participate in one of the most successful advertising campaigns of 2007, the Simpson’s Kwik-e-Mart promotion, where my store outperformed the rest of the country by 200%.
If you’re wondering about my overall results, my stores have consistently posted near double digit sales increases in my first few years with the company. In 2006 my store sales were 14% above the prior year. In 2007 I led the western United States with a 23% sales increase over prior year. Lastly before leaving the company at the end of July, My stores were on track to follow-up the 23% increase with another 8% (This of course with the economy in recession and average store sales flat to last year). My gross profit numbers (Franchisee income) mirror the increases in sales.
To summarize, in my tenure I have helped many store owners make a lot more money.
