The National Coalition of Associations of 7-Eleven Franchisees (NCASEF) has announced that its 39th National Convention and Trade Show will be held July 12 – 16, 2014 in Orlando, Fla. at the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel.
This past July, 62 major sponsors and more than 300 exhibitors participated in the 38th National Convention and Trade Show in Las Vegas. Among the highlights of the convention were the National Coalition’s fundraising activities, including the live and silent auctions, as well as the annual Joe Saraceno Charity Golf Tournament, which raised funds for its designated charities for the year, Hire Heroes USA and Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
“We’re really looking forward to being in Orlando at the Dolphin Hotel,” stated Bruce Maples, chairman of the National Coalition. “Coming off of our dynamic convention in Las Vegas this past July, members of the National Coalition were energized, encouraged and excited about trends in the industry, as well as the continued expansion of 7-Eleven, Inc. in the U.S. We believe that the road ahead will continue to present new opportunities for strategic growth as well as leading-edge developments in the way we manage our individual stores, especially in the area of information technology. As always, our individual franchisees and their employees are committed to providing exceptional value and making sure that every guest at every store feels welcome,” Maples concluded.
The National Coalition of Associations of 7-Eleven Franchisees is the national trade group for 7-Eleven storeowners in the U.S., representing the interests of over 4,700 convenience store owners whose more than 5,900 franchise-owned stores employ almost 40,000 workers.
