Happy 85th Birthday 7 ELEVEN
7-Eleven has more than 46,000 stores operating in 16 countries.
The company got its start in 1927 in Dallas Texas when Joe Thompson (an employee of Southland Ice Company) began selling milk, eggs and bread from an ice house.
To make a long story short the company was saved from bankruptcy in the 80s by a Japanese company.
