    How many 7/11's are there in Pattaya?

    Ping pong!

    Love the sound of them door bells, how do the staff cope with that incessant "ping pong" all day?

    Nice slushies, pringles and microwave burgers.

    I reckon there's about 2024 establishments, higher or lower?

    I used to enjoy the hot dogs in a roll with the salad etc,used to be my treat on a trip to Yaso city or Ubon.

    The buggers stopped them.

    I have 6 x 7/elevens within 5 minutes walking distance from my home.

    Throw in a couple of Tescos and others and I live in convenience store heaven.

    On my cheap Charlie trip, I ate those once a day. And picked up my bottle of Siam Sato.

    There is 2 711's on second road.

    Difficult question but..............

    How many 7 Elevens are there in Thailand?

    As of July 2020, there were 11,983 stores in Thailand, employing 170,000. In 2018, 7-Eleven generated 335,532 million baht in income for CP. 7-Eleven holds a 70% market share in the convenience store category, opposed by some 7,000 other convenience stores (e.g., FamilyMart) and 400,000 "mom and pop" shops.


    How profitable is a 7 11 franchise?

    How much does a 7-Eleven store owner make? Well a lot depends on what you are selling as some items have much higher margins, but a very approximate estimate is 5% of store sales so a store doing $1,000,000 in sales would generate about $50,000 for the owner.

    Read somewhere once that only some town in Brazil has more 7/11's per km2 than Pattaya. I don't know about that but do know it would be difficult to ever find yourself more than about 100 meters from one or more 7/11's or a Family Mart. If ever someone is giving you directions here and they say "go up so-and-so road then turn left at the 7/11" you know they're taking the piss

    About 3 new stores have opened up in my vicinity within the last 6 months. Also, the Big C mini-stores and branches of other mini-mart outlets springing up everywhere.

    Not sure when saturation-point is going to be reached, tbh. Seems no one can get enough of them.

    ^But their ham & cheese toasties are unbeatable

    Seriously though, I live on money that comes out of an ATM and as pretty much every 7/11 has one attached to it, cash is never far away. Perfect.

    You can see more than 1 Sev in an eye shot in Pattaya. So that's probably true

    Imagine if the brand name would have been ISIS 7-Eleven

    Talk about major re-branding.

    Just a thought.

    Hmm.

    Yeah. Let's inconvenience poor people and regular ppl in general by banning plastic bags by egalitarian dictat. So that some globalist do gooders , who never use plastic bags, can feel good.

    Plastic alternatives cost on average 220% more. There is a FUCKING reason we used plastic.

    Anyone with some political maturity , fucking cringes at ideas like this. Because they know it's a horrible precedent to set.

    But even if you cringed , you went along with it , because you are a conformist normie. And you'll go along with the next Maoist egalitarian dictat too.

    Just say it right now. The next random egalitarian dictat that comes up, you will arbitrarily support.
