This just in from reader Dara:
“Hi John! Emailed 7-Eleven again about status of Ellwood store (Store #13888, 7443 Hollister Ave, Goleta) and received this reply. I politely declined because I am happily and completely retired!!
‘FRANCHISE OPPORTUNITY!! We are looking for a franchisee for this location now. Once we have a franchise we will open this store. Please let me know if you are interested in franchising this store. I am happy to talk with you. Best regards, Paula Quigley,
Franchise Sales Specialist, 916-803-0777 | Paula.Quigley2@7-11.com’ “
If you ever wanted to own a local 7-Eleven, now is your chance.
