Long Island gets touch-screen drink machines.

March 09, 2020

IRVING, Texas—7-Eleven said its stores on Long Island are now offering customers a new and expanded self-serve beverage menu. The convenience chain has expanded its hot and cold drink menu to all Long Island 7‑Eleven stores with the addition of touch-screen machines that brew custom hot coffee drinks, such as lattes, cappuccinos and espresso shots in just seconds. They also dispense cold beverages like cold brew, teas, lemonade and more.

The expansive, new condiment stations offer customers a selection of toppings, sprinkles and sweeteners. The recent store updates also include new ovens for preparation of baked-in-store croissants, cookies and pastries, as well as self-serve hot food and roller grill items. As with all proprietary 7‑Eleven beverages, the cup size determines the price, not what goes in it.

7-Eleven plans to bring the same technology to other U.S. stores, starting with Virginia, Florida and California.

“We’re excited to bring these innovative new platforms to our Long Island customers,” said Dave Strachan, 7‑Eleven Innovation Implementation Leader. “The expanded beverage assortment, baked-in-store cookies and pastries, self-serve grill and hot food platforms give customers what they’re looking for with even more convenience.”
