The convenience stores owned and operated by 7-Eleven Stores are neither licensees nor franchisees of the national 7-Eleven Inc. chain, but are totally independent. The company has grandfathered rights to use the name and branding in Oklahoma through a special arrangement made in 1953 between founder William Brown and 7-Eleven Inc.
The Oklahoma chain offers Icy Drink instead of Slurpee and runs its own bakery, Seventh Heaven. It also runs its own full-service distribution center known as DistribuQuik, along with Payphone Co. and MovieQuik, its proprietary movie-rental operation.
The chain sells unbranded fuel in all but four locations.
