7-Eleven Franchise, CEO Joe DePinto Under Fire by Angry Franchisees

7-Eleven franchisees are mad as hell and not taking it anymore.

(UnhappyFranchisee.Com) Many 7-Eleven franchise owners claim that they have been victimized by a brutal, exploitive scheme wherein 7-Eleven, Inc. seizes their franchised stores with the intention of reselling them at a profit to new franchisees, an industry practice known as “churning.”Many of these stores were operated by honest, compliant franchisees and their families for decades and had built up goodwill worth hundreds of thousands of dollars.Insider whistleblower Kurt McCord has seemingly validated many of these claims (See 7-ELEVEN Bombshell: Insider Accuses 7-11 of Predatory Franchise Practices).7-Eleven franchise owners are fighting back with a slew of lawsuits against 7-Eleven, Inc.

The group lawsuit even inspired the blistering 7-ELEVEN Franchise Blues – A Protest Song, which is posted on YouTube and UnhappyFranchisee.Com.

However, these franchisee lawsuits are undermining the aggressive and orchestrated recruitment drive 7-Eleven has undertaken to fuel its ambitious North American expansion.

No matter what happens with the individual lawsuits, the attractiveness of the 7-Eleven franchise as an investment opportunity is being called into question both in the mainstream business media and the ethnic

    My dear hurus.. show me that act of making money with hand in hand with the 7-11 if u own a low volume store. If you are little educated and have somewhat of dignity left in you , you will come to hate yourself and your leash holder within 1 year . If you don’t feel like a slave in one year guess what 7- eleven just hit a lifetime money making machine.
