7-Eleven was founded by J. C. Thompson in 1927 as The South land Ice Company in Dallas, Texas. Started as an ice vendor, the company eventually began offering milk, bread and eggs on Sundays and evenings when grocery stores were closed. This new business idea produced satisfied customers and increased sales, spawning the precursor of the modern convenience retail concept.
The company’s first convenience outlets were known as Tote’m stores since customers “toted” away their purchases, and some even sported genuine Alaskan totem poles in front. In 1946, Tote’m became 7-Eleven to reflect the stores’ new, extended hours – 7 a.m. until 11 p.m., seven days a week. The company’s corporate name was changed from The South land Corporation to 7-Eleven, Inc. in 1999.
Each 7-Eleven store carries over 2,200 SKUs, including our proprietary brands such as Slurpee frozen beverages and Big Gulp fountain soft drinks. The variety of services available at 7-Eleven include the bill payment service, sale of mobile phone reload cards, IDD/STD, Touch N Go reload, internet games’ starter packs, reloads via MOL Point top-up, ink cartridge refill, photocopying, fax, automated teller machine (ATM), and bulletin board for neighbourhood community notices.
In 2009, 7-Eleven introduced fresh brewed coffee and other hot beverages together with packaged fresh food and bakery for the convenience of customers looking for ready-to-eat hot food. All food items sold in 7-Eleven are certified HALAL and undergo stringent quality control to ensure tastefulness and freshness.
Being the premier neighborhood convenience store, community building is in the heart of 7-Eleven’s corporate social responsibility framework. 7-Eleven Community Care is a non-profit entity set up to implement 7-Eleven Malaysia’s corporate social responsibility and philanthropic initiatives. We believe in giving back to the society we operate in, with a commitment to support the underprivileged groups and to sustain environmental conservation effort at the local community level across all regions
