Vietnam's First 7-Eleven Store to Open in Saigon This June

Saigoneers, get ready for bouts of Slurpee-induced brain freezes.

In November last year, we wrote about 7-Eleven's imminent arrival in Vietnam after news broke of the American convenience store chain’s job postings in the local market. The franchise was seeking a quality assurance manager, a fresh food associate and a marketing associate.

At the time, an industry publication predicted that 7-Eleven could enter Vietnam as early as April 2017 or as late as April 2018.

It seems that the official date is right on schedule: according to a recent post on the company’s Facebook page, its first outlet will open its doors to Saigoneers this month.

The exact location of the first 7-Eleven store in the city hasn’t been revealed yet, but another post indicates that it could be in District 1, 2, 3 or Binh Thanh District.

7-Eleven Vietnam will be managed by Seven System Vietnam, a subsidiary of its Japan counterpart. When the Saigon outlet opens, Vietnam will become the 18th country to welcome the convenience store chain.
