NCASEF Franchisees 'In It To Win It'

Registration opens for national 7-Eleven coalition's 38th annual show

TUCSON, Ariz. -- Again accompanied by fundraising campaigns for Hire Heroes USA and Susan G. Komen for the Cure, Southern Arizona, the National Coalition of Associations of 7-Eleven Franchisees (NCASEF) is set to hold its National Convention & Trade Show.

Registration is now available online for NCASEF's 38th annual event, which will be held July 14 to July 18, 2013, in Las Vegas, at the Venetian Hotel & Casino.

The theme of this year's convention, "In It To Win It," reflects the can-do attitude of the franchisees, their families and the vendors who will attend this year's convention, the group said.

Last July, more than 60 major sponsors and more than 200 exhibitors participated in the 37th National Convention & Trade Show in Honolulu, one of the most successful to date. Among the highlights of the convention was the National Coalition's donations of more than $400,000 to Hire Heroes USA and Susan G. Komen for the Cure, Southern Arizona, its designated charities.

"It's always great to be back in Las Vegas and every time we're here, the National Convention just gets better," said Bruce Maples, chairman of NCASEF. "Since Honolulu, our franchisees have been working hard to make 7-Eleven the best convenience store company in the country, adopting new technologies, staying ahead of the curve and working to make each and every 7-Eleven convenience store a valued destination for our customers and the communities we serve. That attitude has made 7-Eleven successful globally, nationally and locally and we honor that in our store owners and their employees and families."

NCASEF is the national trade group for 7-Eleven storeowners in the United States, representing the interests of almost 4,500 convenience store owners whose nearly 5,700 franchise-owned stores employ almost 40,000 workers.
