First 7-Eleven in WA to open in October

100 High Street in Fremantle will be the site of Western Australia's first 7-Eleven store, and it is scheduled to open its doors on 30 October.
 
According to 7-Eleven CEO, Warren Wilmot, customers will soon be able to enjoy 7-Eleven's high quality convenience offer.
 
"Our stores are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days of the year for our customers' convenience. Customers can enjoy our iconic Slurpees, and our famous fresh ground coffee, anything from a latte to a long black, made in our quality machines from freshly ground beans.  A regular coffee is just $1," he said.
 
"We offer fresh food including handmade sandwiches, salads, hot pastries and sweet treats. One of the things that makes us different is that our market leading supply chain delivers fresh food into every store seven days a week."
 
For the convenience of customers, stores have Bankwest/Commonwealth ATMs, and Moneygram money transfer services as well as drinks, sweets, snacks, and top up groceries.
 
"In time, we would like to offer more of the services we have on the Eastern Seaboard. This includes our quality Mobil branded fuel range in our fuel sites, transport tickets, and Australia Post Parcel Lockers in selected stores," Warren said.
 
The company's national success has seen a large number of existing Franchisees express an interest in moving to the west to take up the initial franchises.
 
Warren said the company will initially work with some of the more experienced Franchisees to establish the brand in Western Australia.
 
"We have some outstanding Franchisees that we've selected to come to WA to franchise the first few stores. Our Franchisees and their staff are the face of our business, and it is their efforts in providing local customers with well-presented stores and fantastic customer service that makes our business successful. So it makes sense that we have selected some of our best to make the move with us to Western Australia," he said.
 
Since the expansion was announced earlier in 2014, strong interest has been shown by landlords, agents and developers eager to work with 7-Eleven on the business opportunities created by the company's first expansion into a new market in 32 years.
 
With the aim of opening 75 stores in Western Australia in the next five years, 7-Eleven is interested in stand-alone stores and fuel sites with good footfall and customer traffic flow.
 
Other non-fuel stores at Subiaco and central Perth are set to open in 2014. Additional sites, including the iconic McNess Arcade, are expected to open in early 2015. A temporary pop-up store in Perth is also being planned to help launch the brand in the new market.
