"The convenience store chain was able to surmout last year\\\'s economic slowdown through the introduction of new food service items such as Hotta Rice, Hot Beverages, and year-round value promotions. Strategic partnerships with suppliers enabled 7-Eleven to launch novel marketing promotions such as the Bingo Promo and the Big Bite Match. These efforts resulted in the continued patronization of regular 7-Eleven customers and, in turn, led to an increase in sales," the company added. [See 99 ways to sell more, faster and better here]
