The convenience channel, one of the most dynamic in all of retail, continues to impress with interesting innovations and new products that were evident at one of the industry’s largest gatherings of operators.

Roughly 8,500 people attended the 7-Eleven Experience in Las Vegas earlier this week for a glimpse at prepared foods, beverages, private brands and new technologies designed to help franchisees drive growth.

“As you know, I’m very positive and upbeat about the growth potential of the c-store industry,” 7-Eleven CEO Joseph DePinto told Retail Leader sister brand Convenience Store News. “We are perfectly positioned to where the public is going. We are the retail channel that is closest to the customer, and we offer the most simplicity and ease of any other retail concept.”
