7-Eleven Trivia

In Singapore, 7-Eleven forms the largest chain of convenience stores islandwide. There are at present 404 7-Eleven stores scattered throughout the country. Stores in Singapore are operated by the Dairy Farm Group, franchised under a licensing agreement with 7-Eleven Incorporated, headquartered in the United States.

The first 7-Eleven stores in Singapore were operated in 1983 with a franchise license under the Jardine Matheson Group. The license was then acquired by Cold Storage Singapore, a subsidiary of the Dairy Farm Group, in 1989. At present, 7 Eleven plans to expand its base to include 300 stores, within the next few years. 7-Eleven has also recently signed an agreement with Royal Dutch Shell to include its convenience stores in all Shell Petrol Stations.

All the 7-Eleven stores in Singapore operate round the clock, except for stores in hospitals, Singapore Polytechnic and MRT Stations, which have shorter operating hours. 7-Eleven Singapore has four proprietary products. They are Big Gulp, Slurpee, Mr Softee (soft serve ice cream), and Quickbites (Light finger food).
