7-Eleven’s investment in WA will hit 50 million since launch in 2022

14 December 2021

7-Eleven’s expansion in the West continues in 2021 with the opening of four new stores, including its first regional store at Busselton, with an additional store at Brabham expected to open before Christmas. 

The additional five million investment brings the company’s commitment to bringing choice to consumers and jobs for West Australians, to more than $47 million since they opened their first store in October 2014.

According to 7-Eleven Area Lead – WA, Nick Maddox, the company is going to continue to grow by investing approximately six million in new stores in 2022.

“We expect to open about seven stores in Western Australia in 2022. We are incredibly excited to open our first regional store at Busselton and will continue to grow our regional network  adding a new store at Treendale in early 2022,” Mr Maddox said.

The company’s continued investment means that job opportunities and accelerated career progression will be available for West Australians in both metropolitan and regional areas.

“Approximately 45 additional West Australians have joined our team in 2021, and we hope to have about 100 new roles available as our network continues to grow in 2022. The pace of our growth means there’s potential for people who want a career in retail and to accelerate their progression,” he said.

Mr Maddox said that the company provides extensive training, so specific fuel and convenience retail experience isn’t mandatory for success.

“For people looking to make a career path in a new industry, our career development and network growth provide support and opportunity.

“We’re looking for talented people with the right capabilities who might be interested in leadership. We invest in giving our people the skills they need to take advantage of the opportunities our growth provides.”

The company is also continuing to look for the right locations to bring its offer to new communities in metropolitan and regional Western Australia.

“We are interested in sites in both established suburbs and growth corridors positioned within reach of our customers along busy commuter routes, immersed within residential precincts along connecting roads, local shopping, and community centres,” Mr Maddox said.

“Our preferred sites provide convenient access for passing traffic and suitable room for vehicle movement and easy customer parking. We’re continuing to work with landlords and developers in Western Australia to secure locations to serve our local communities.”
