IRVING, Texas—Cambodia’s first 7-Eleven store opened yesterday in an office building in Phnom Penh, the capital city of the Southeast Asian country, the first of several c-stores CP ALL Cambodia Co. Ltd. plans to open this year.
CP ALL Cambodia Co. Ltd., holds a master franchise agreement with 7-Eleven Inc., and is solely authorized to develop and operate stores in Cambodia. CP ALL Cambodia Co., Ltd. is a subsidiary of CP All Public Company Limited, which operates more than 12,000 7-Eleven stores in Thailand and is the largest 7-Eleven licensee.
“CP All is an innovative partner and exceptional 7-Eleven store operator, and I have no doubt that they will continue that tradition in Cambodia,” said Joe DePinto, president and CEO of 7–Eleven, in a press release. “We worked closely with them to ensure we offer the right mix of popular 7-Eleven products from across the globe, as well as our own creations of local favorites.”
Open 24 hours a day seven days a week, the new store is located in Phnom Penh’s Prek Pnov district on the outskirts of the city. The c-store carries more than 2,000 products, ones typically found at 7-Eleven stores such as Slurpee semi-frozen drinks, 7–Select private brand snacks and local fresh food items, including some unique to the Cambodian market.
“It is always exciting to introduce 7-Eleven to a completely new country of customers experiencing for the first time the convenience, quality, freshness and highest standard of service we offer, DePinto said. “We now operate in several Asian countries, and each one has something unique to offer and teach us about the business in their part of the world.”
