7-ELEVEN Franchise Owner Claims Franchisees Are Being Bullied
July 16, 2013
7-Eleven franchisees are gathering this week in Las Vegas this week for the 38th National Coalition Of Associations Of 7-Eleven Franchisees (NCASEF) Convention.
Some 7-Eleven franchisees have expressed their frustration that 7-Eleven Inc. has apparently been purging the system of outspoken franchisee leaders, such as Tariq Khan and Karamjeet Sodhi, and installed corporate “ass kissers” who will do the bidding of the Japanese owners, Seven and I Holding Co.
One franchisee, posting as “Krishna,” claims that 7-Eleven has intentionally created an atmosphere in which the docile Indian & Pakistani franchisees are afraid that if they stand up for their rights, they will have their stores taken from them.
While many do not go so far as to say Khan and Sodhi were angels and fault-free, they believe that 7-Eleven sent them the message that if they can take down the successful and influential franchisee leaders, they can do it to any franchisee, at any time.
Here are comments from Krishna posted today. Please share your views with a comment below.
“Corrupt company gangsters who bully their franchisees” – 7-11 Franchisee Krishna
I am franchisee. Tariq khan was chairman of national coalition of franchisee association and Sodhi is FOA president.
It’s not co-incidence [that 7-Eleven recently terminated both and attempted to seize their stores].
SEI is after any one who is a spokeman for franchisee spokesperson.
Indian Pakistani franchisee are the people who don’t stand up for there rights. All franchisee fear SEI will take their store back.
Some FOA presidents are ass kisser. 7-11 choose National business council from franchisee community. All ass kisser get selected in that committee so no feed back is heard from franchisee.
Any one will speak against 7-11 will lose the store.
7-11 is having there trade show. They forced all franchisee to attend in Vegas. They collected millions of dollars from vendors. (any vendor who refused to attend the show, was threatened that they won’t be approved vendor any more)
Those million of dollars they collected,because of franchisee. That amount shouldn’t be splitted with franchisee ?
There are more than 2000 people ex franchisee filed bankruptcy due to 7-11.
The truck driver who got free 7-11 from CEO said in his interview lately, he was better off driving truck. Now he makes less than he use to make and work 30 more hours in 7-11
There is USA top ice creme company, who refused to deal with 7-11 because they refuse to give kick back to get approved vendor status.
Most corrupt company-gangsters- company who bully their franchisee’s. Almighty is watching. He will send an angel soon so we will get JUSTICE.
“God save use from these blood sucker Japanese.” – 7-11 Franchisee Krishna
SEI wants to take more and more. They terminated their employees and made those same employees as a independent contractor. They charge that amount to franchisee’s.
ex :when you use to convert your store to corporation name, it use to cost 3000 to 4000 dollars. Now it’s 7000 to 8000, because they gave this job to private contractors.
Same sale amount we use to sell last years, will get more gross profit than this time.
Maintenance charges gone up 40% but SEi don’t care, it’s coming from franchisee profit.
God will save use from these blood sucker Japanese.
“WHERE IS THE GOVERNMENT WHO PROTECT THE FRANCHISEE?” – 7-11 Franchisee Krishna
How legal is the following ?
When we sign a contract, SEi can change the contract any time without letting you know.
Amend it ..
WHERE IS THE GOVERNMENT WHO PROTECT THE FRANCHISEE?
There are 2 states which has a law to protect the franchisee and guess what ?
7-11 is not in those states.
WHAT DO YOU THINK? ARE YOU FAMILIAR WITH THE 7-ELEVEN FRANCHISE PROGRAM PROGRAM? DO YOU BELIEVE FRANCHISEES ARE TREATED FAIRLY? SHARE A COMMENT BELOW.
