We’re proud to be one of Australia’s largest private companies, with more than 700 stores located in neighbourhoods across Victoria, New South Wales, ACT, Queensland and Western Australia. Our business is made up of more than 450 small family-owned businesses. Approximately 8,800 people work under the 7-Eleven brand, either directly with 7-Eleven or through franchised stores.

7-Eleven is the largest petrol and convenience retailer in Australia, based on market share. The company is privately owned by the Withers and Barlow families, who have a license to operate and franchise 7-Eleven stores in Australia from the US based 7-Eleven Inc. The first Australian store was opened in August 1977. Today 7-Eleven operates more than 700 stores in Victoria, New South Wales, the Australian Capital Territory, Queensland and Western Australia.
