Gas station

The local Sunoco has been re-branded as a 7-Eleven gas station. 

The Sunoco gas station located on N Fraser St. will soon be a 7-Eleven.

The convenience store, located near Walmart, is currently transitioning over to 7-Eleven signage and other brand identification.

In early 2018, the parent company acquired approximately 1,030 Sunoco convenience stores located in 17 states.

Though purchased as a corporate location, 7-Eleven Inc. is looking for people interested in becoming a local franchise owner. A franchising seminar will be held on June 25 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. in North Charleston at the TownePlace Suites.

According to the corporate office, “Those interested in managing their own business with the support of the world’s largest convenience retailer should attend the free, two-hour franchise seminars this summer designed to educate interested entrepreneurs on the benefits of joining the popular and growing brand. “

Two other seminars will be held, on July 9 and Aug. 13. For more information or to sign up, visit https://franchise.7-eleven.com/franchise/seminar-sign-up.
