7-Eleven Store in Kennewick #1 in August Slurpee Sales

Posted: Updated:
KENNEWICK, Wash.--In recent weeks, we've followed a local 7-Eleven convenience store as the owner tried to break, or slurp his way to history.

Last month, the 7-Eleven store on Clearwater avenue in Kennewick was ranked fourth in Slurpee sales nationally and 10th across North America. As of now, it holds the number one slot in North America for the month of August.

"Our sales are more than double what they were a year ago," says Franchise Owner Don Mariotto. So, the customers are just thrilled and we're always happy to see them going out with smile."

Mariotto adds his average daily slurpee sales is $108.00 ahead of a 7-Eleven store in Manitoba, Canada. Because of his stores success, Mariotto says customers can expect a few surprises in the coming weeks. Something to watch out for.
