7-Eleven has its origins in 1927 in Dallas, TX, when founder Joe C. Thompson started selling milk, eggs and bread from an ice dock. It is the largest chain store with more than 36,842 outlets operating around the world.
The chain got its name from its hours-- initially, these stores were open from an unprecedented 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. The company began to use the 7-Eleven name in 1946. Of course 7-Eleven is famous for its Big Gulp drink, and the Slurpee, but it also owns or operates several brands and concepts, including Movie Quik, an in-store video-rental service, Citgo, the gas brand sold at many locations up until 2006 and Chief Auto Parts, which had locations adjacent to or near several 7-Eleven locations.
