In its “W.E. Take the Lead” Women’s Franchise Giveaway Contest, 7-Eleven will offer one woman an initial franchise fee-free 7-Eleven franchise, with a franchise fee value up to $190,000. It is the second year the world’s largest convenience retailer has targeted women for the franchise giveaway.

The multiphase contest includes submitting a detailed franchise application, meeting company franchising qualifications, preliminary interviews, a video submission, an in-store hands-on experience and a final one-on-one interview with 7-Eleven senior leadership. The contest will take eight months to complete.

“Last year we had such an incredible response and we are excited to open the contest again to women who are interested in joining the 7-Eleven team,” 7-Eleven Vice President of Operations Support Dan Soper said in a statement. “7-Eleven encourages women entrepreneurship everywhere, especially in the neighborhoods in which we operate.”

The contest winner will have her choice of the company’s corporate-operated 7-Eleven convenience stores available for franchising in the U.S., including Rochester. In addition, 7-Eleven will make a donation to the winning woman’s charity of choice that aligns with the company’s Project A-Game grant program. Project A-Game funds youth programs focused on education, fitness, safety and hunger relief.
