Local media report that convenience store retailer 7-Eleven is planning to change its franchising pattern in China.
The headquarters of 7-Eleven has set up a special office for the promotion of the new franchising operation. They will invest about RMB600,000 on the franchise pattern in the initial stage.
A representative from the franchising office of 7-Eleven has told local media that the company is now negotiating with relevant government departments for the shift in its franchising operations.
7-Eleven has 30 convenience stores in Beijing, all of which are directly-owned by the company.
