Reason 4 – Gouging & Perceived Unethical Practices.Si you take 2 minutes to search online, you won`t find a shortage of owners and ex-owners who are quite dissatisfied at 7-Eleven. Scroll down the Unhappy Franchisee website. You`ll find reviews from real owners on many topics that relate to their negative gouging experience, unethical practices, hard work for low-wage earners, and much more. Or why not the owner of the franchise, distributed by 7-Eleven, who eventually opened a competing store across the street called 6-Twelve? Interesting story about how he had to throw away food, no one wanted $200 a day because 7-Eleven forced him to. What about this message “7-Eleven takes the bite of the American dream”. There are many more if you take the time to do some research. We would prefer the franchisee to be the chief operating officer of the business. Franchisees with multiple locations may need a manager to operate additional businesses. The manager should undergo appropriate 7 Eleven training. Please note that to become a multi-site franchisee in 7-Eleven, you must go through a detailed and thorough approval process.
The ASB (Small Business Administration) also mimed 7-Eleven. For those of you who don`t know, the SBA is a government organization that supports entrepreneurs and also guarantees loans for most franchises. A few years ago, edith Wiseman, president of FRANdata, said in an email to the Franchise Times that the U.S. Small Business Administration “identified issues within 7 Eleven`s franchise agreement that they would have to overcome in order to secure SBA financing,” including excessive fees, the requirement that business receipts be deposited into the franchisee`s account, and the fact that the franchisee must overcome the company`s assets. and provides its payroll services. So we review elements of what many consider excessive control.7-Eleven are also not qualified for the E-2 investor visa as the U.S. Department of Immigration. also decided that the lack of control makes 7-Eleven a bad investment for E-2 investors.
Area Granted: The franchise agreement includes a single 7-Eleven site. Franchisees do not benefit from a minimum zone. Franchisees also do not benefit from an exclusive zone. I think there are two ways to look at that. One is that they target people who don`t know better and who use them, the other is that they give them a chance. It`s up to you. But why not see franchise professionals, investors or celebrities buying a 7-Eleven? This is a tactic we call the “Puppy Dog” sales tactic. As soon as a buyer falls in love with a particular franchise and has all these positive visions of owning the franchise, it is later very difficult to change your mind, even after seeing things like 50% share of revenue.
We often see this in our own clients, where we show negative franchise attributes such as massive failure rates or franchisee dissatisfaction, but they cling to this false idyllic view that was infused early in the process. Never let yourself be guided by emotions through the franchise process. 7-Eleven believes that its franchisee is in a good financial position. Applicants must have a creditworthiness of at least 700 and cannot have filed for bankruptcy in the last seven years….
