business news in context, analysis with attitude

The Dallas Morning News reports that c-store giant 7-Eleven is ramping up its hot food program in the Dallas market, adding “items such as pepperoni pizza and chicken wings to 115 Dallas-area stores.

The reason?’s because consumers crave convenience, and that means a better level of hot prepared foods, and because 7-Eleven realized that “food service is our future.”
KC's View:
ore competition for supermarkets, as c-stores work to steal their thunder...not to mention their customers. This is a threat that supermarkets - and even other c-stores - need to take very seriously.
