7-Eleven expansion plans in Queensland are continuing at pace, with another new store opening this week.
Located in Morayfield East and led by Kiki Singh and a passionate team of 10, the new store is the fifth to open in Queensland this year.
7-Eleven Queensland State Manager Gavin Monaghan said the business was continuing to invest in growth and was pleased to be creating new employment and franchising opportunities in the state.
“We’ve opened almost 50 new stores across Queensland in less than four years,” he said.
“Specifically, we have invested heavily in the growth corridors throughout North Brisbane.
“This growth means our Queensland team is substantial. More than 2,300 Queenslanders currently work in a 7-Eleven workplace across our franchised stores, corporate store network and support functions.
“There’s a lot of talent here which has seen people unlock some great development opportunities, and the growth in our network is helping accelerate the career trajectory for people which is really exciting.”
Earlier this year, the company opened a concept microformat store in the Brisbane CBD.
With six additional stores scheduled to be completed this financial year, 7-Eleven is on track for a network of 200 Queensland stores in 2021.
When asked what lies ahead for the business that has been part of the Queensland community since 1982, Monaghan spoke about making customers lives easier.
“Our customers’ needs will continue to change, and our goal is to lead in how we innovate and adapt,” he said.
“From food for now, a drink on the run, to services that provide an easier option, we’re going to keep working hard for Queenslanders.
“By leading the market in how we meet customer needs, we can continue to invest in growth and our people.”
