Fact is if you work it yourself seven days a week, after less then a year you will be toast.
Its best treated as an investment. If you can make that investment and hire people and still turn a modest profit at the end of the day, thats what its all about. Obviously some locations may work while others may not. Thats the roll of the dice.
You should do this study yourself. Physically go around to 200 7 elevens and take a quick look, who is manning the store?

Slacking for me will come later
I can make $100k a month by busting my ass teaching if I wished.
My goal is to open a franchised beverage place, but as with any business, from what I heard from business owners you need to keep a keen eye on it, because nobody knows or cares about your business more than you do.
You may see young kids manning the store, but be assured that the camera you see above their head is being observed by a laoban somewhere
saddletramp - thanks for the reply, I figure it would be a lot of work but I don't plan on working in the store; it's more of an investment for myself. Hire locals to work the store; I'm not looking to bleed the area just prefer something physical to invest in. I'll also search again but as you can see from my title, i searched for 7-11 many different ways and couldn't really find anything.
You manage your managers who in turn manage the supervisors who in turn manage the staff.
