7-Eleven Launches A Sit-Down Restaurant

March 25, 2019

Can we get a Big Gulp of beer, please? In need of a new date spot, but don't want to go to some stuffy expensive restaurant? Well, good news for you. 7-Eleven is launching a sit-down restaurant that - wait for it - also serves alcohol.

At first, you might be a little sketched out, but it seems promising! By going upscale, 7-Eleven pushes the normal boundaries of stop-and-go mini-marts. This international convenience store opened its first sit-down cafe in Dallas, Texas, with talks of them opening more sit-down 7-Eleven's in San Diego and Washington, D.C.

In collaboration with the Laredo Taco Company, the Dallas location serves as the Lab Store for future 7-Elevens. At this store, they have a frozen yogurt and ice cream bar and a freshly-baked pastry area. They even have a section called "The Cellar," where they have wine, beer, and cider. I don't know about you, but all of this sounds pretty perfect. We're anxiously waiting for the San Diego store to open so we can drive down there and try it ourselves!

What are your thoughts?
