Convenience Store Industry Case Study
Convenient store giant, 7-Eleven, leverages SupplyLogic to
develop national and local store marketing campaign program
Convenience store giant gives their 10,000 franchisees hyper-targeted, brand-compliant, and customizable local store marketing with help the of SupplyLogic. 7-Eleven did not have a nationally coordinated program. The 10,000 franchisees were either not doing any targeted marketing or working individually with local suppliers to produce the unique marketing materials needed to drive business within their communities. They were spending significant time and money to create materials that didn’t always align with the corporate quality standards, messaging, or branding guidelines.
7-Eleven partnered with their franchisees and the SupplyLogic team to develop a range of targeted and compliant local marketing materials. SupplyLogic’s proprietary technology was implemented to allow the franchisees to customize the materials, targeting the message by location based on individual store and trade area dynamics. The platform is fully integrated with 7-Eleven’s intranet and SupplyLogic’s systems allowing SupplyLogic to continue managing the process through production and delivery, further simplifying the ordering experience.
“SupplyLogic’s marketing technology solution and expertise will allow us to continue to grow while supporting national and local marketing strategies with cost-efficient planning, improved local execution capabilities, and greater speed-to-market.”
– Jay Wilkins, Director of Marketing Transformation, 7-Eleven
