DALLAS, TX (Oct. 14, 2009)—The Dallas Morning News reports that c-store leader 7-Eleven is strengthening its competitive on-the-go foodservice positioning with the addition of items such as pepperoni pizza and chicken wings prepared in high-tech, high-speed ovens.
According to the report, the program is part of a nationwide rollout that is bringing ovens made by TurboChef Technologies to 1,400 7-Eleven stores this year. 7-Eleven has offered grilled hot dogs since the early 1980s, but a spokeswoman said this marks the first widespread use of the high-speed TurboChef oven that combines radiant heat, microwave and convection cooking technologies.
Stores with the new hot food program will be able to serve items such as four-cheese and pepperoni pizza (whole or by the slice), white-meat chicken tenders and three varieties of chicken wings – spicy, breaded; Asian; and barbecue. Click here to read the full story.
