7-Eleven completes Sunoco acquisition
Irving, Texas-based 7‑Eleven, the largest chain in the convenience-retailing industry, has closed on the acquisition of approximately 1,030 Sunoco convenience stores located in 17 states. The acquisition is the largest in 7‑Eleven history and will bring the total number of stores to about 9,700 in the U.S. and Canada.
“Part of what makes brand 7‑Eleven so iconic is our global presence and our continued growth,” said Joe DePinto, 7‑Eleven president and CEO. “The acquisition of over 1,000 Sunoco stores supports our accelerated growth strategy, and we look forward to serving these great new customers.”
The APlus, Laredo Taco, Ladson Grill and Stripes brands will continue to serve customers as the acquisition is completed.
Seven & i Holdings Co. Ltd., the parent company of 7‑Eleven, operates more than 65,000 stores in 18 countries globally.
