7-Eleven is looking to serve the needs of its customers better while many Americans are under stay-at-home and shelter-in-place orders, so it’s expanding its delivery footprint through Postmates, DoorDash, and Google.
“How convenience is defined is completely different today than it was just a month ago,” Chris Tanco, 7-Eleven chief operating officer, said in a statement. “Our customers are now looking for more convenient shopping solutions at home.”
Customers can also use 7-Eleven’s own 7NOW delivery app as well as the Favor Delivery app for convenient access to its hundreds of products. With the delivery expansion, over 90 percent of participating U.S. 7-Eleven stores will have on-demand ordering available.
7-Eleven may not be the first store that comes to mind when people think of grocery essentials, but depending on the specific store, it may offer items such as milk, bread, and eggs—along with Slurpee drinks, of course. Stores may also have sandwiches, chips, coffee, pastries, and even cold medicine available.
7-Eleven items can now be ordered through Postmates, DoorDash, and Favor’s app-based platforms. They can also be ordered by searching through multiple Google products including Google Search, Google Maps, and Google Assistant.
“Expanding the marketplace beyond our stores has been a strategic goal, and these extraordinary times have accelerated our efforts to get the products our customers want and need to them as safely as possible,” Raghu Mahadevan, 7-Eleven VP of Digital and head of Delivery, said in a statement.
