And who didn't grow up taking your kids to a Slurpee after a sporting event?
We all did.
And thank goodness for 7-Eleven.
It's great to be in the River City.
This is a very big day for 7-Eleven because it's a homecoming for us.
Some 60 years ago, 7-Eleven, as we branched out from our home in Texas...
...the first place we went, can anyone guess?
It's time to get those stores back here.
Our plan is to do it big, we'll be opening 15 to 20 stores this year,...
...another 20 to 25 next year and by 2015 we'll have 80 plus stores in the Jacksonville area,...
...which will equate to some 800 jobs.
So Jacksonville, 7-Eleven is back and we're glad and it's good to be here.
And I have to tell you...
...we do this in many different areas but the welcome that we have received here...
...has been like none other.
So thank you all, thank you all for coming here.
Thank you to the city.
