IRVING, Texas—7-Eleven Inc. said Friday it is catering to customers in their homes by introducing a new ready-to-bake line of its most popular hot food items, including cheese or pepperoni pizza, chicken tenders, buffalo and spicy bone-in wings, breaded boneless wings and Monterrey Jack chicken taquitos.
“Before the pandemic, customers were out and on-the-go, grabbing breakfast on the way to work, buying lunch while running errands or indulging in an after-school Slurpee treat,” said Robin Murphy, 7-Eleven senior director of fresh foods in a news release. “That has all changed and people are home and eating together as families. We can give them the convenience of picking up a couple of pizzas and wings to prepare when they are ready to enjoy them.”
Cooking instructions and times are included on each package, and products are ready in under 30 minutes. Cooking times for pizzas are 20 minutes or less, and about 25 minutes or less for the other snacks. The items are available for pick up in stores as well as through delivery via 7-Eleven’s 7NOW delivery app.
If using the new app, customers can order a variety of items for $5 on the weekends. 7-Eleven is also offering free delivery until May 31 by entering the promotion code "FREE4U" during check out. In select markets, 7NOW delivery app users can add their favorite beer, wine or liquor to their order. Most orders are delivered in about 30 minutes.
“7‑Eleven has been adapting and changing product selection to provide customers with what they want and need during this pandemic,” Murphy said. “Our stores provide quick in-and-out options to grab a meal, snack or drink.”
