In the convenience industry, 7-Eleven was the first to…operate 24 hours a day…sell fresh-brewed coffee in to-go cups…have a self-serve soda fountain…and offer super-size fountain drinks.  7-Eleven was the first c-store retailer to give guests “freedom of choice” by offering all major soft drink brands at the fountain.  7-Eleven was the first convenience store to sell pre-paid phone cards.

The most Slurpee beverages are sold in Winnipeg, Manitoba, in Canada, followed by Detroit, Michigan.  However, the #1 store in the world for Slurpee drink sales is located in Kennewick, Washington.  7-Eleven guests sip almost 13 million Slurpee beverages each month.  Favorite flavors are Coca-Cola, Minute Maid and Cherry.  Since introduced in 1966, close to 6.5 billion Slurpee drinks have been sold, almost enough for every person on the planet.  Of all U.S. retailers, 7-Eleven sells the most…USA Today newspapers, cold beer, cold single-serve bottled water, cold Gatorade, fresh-grilled hot dogs and money orders.
