Through columns by National Coalition officers, franchisees and our vendor partners, and various departments, Avanti provides an organized look at the convenience store industry for 7-Eleven franchisees.

Avanti is published six times per year, and is sent to all 6,294 7-Eleven franchised stores. All franchisees and vendor partners are invited to submit articles and other information for publication.

All manufacturers, service companies, and other vendors are invited to advertise and submit information about new products and promotions.
