WHAT: Before 1964, U.S. coffee-drinkers enjoyed their java either at home or while seated at a restaurant. That’s when a new 7-Eleven franchisee, looking for creative, everyday conveniences to offer his customers, began selling coffee by the cup in his Long Island store. The test proved wildly popular, and by the late 1960s, all U.S. 7-Eleven stores were in the brew and today, the company sells more than 1.1 million cups each day.
To celebrate 50 years of on-the-go coffee, America’s favorite convenience store is celebrating with 50-cent small-size coffee from September 3rd – September 14th at participating 7-Eleven® stores. At the same time, the retailer will kick off a new coffee loyalty program “Every 7th Cup Free” coffee-rewards through its 7-Eleven mobile app. To participate, customers must download the app in the iTunes App Store or Google Play and register as a member. Texting “BREW” to 711711 will also send a link to download.
