Local Navy vet seeks your vote for 7-Eleven franchise

The only national finalist from Virginia is in a tight race.

It’s show time for seven women entrepreneurs nationwide who have been selected as finalists in the 7-Eleven Women’s Franchise Initiative competition that will award one of them a franchisee fee-free 7-Eleven® store. Evelyn Scott of Chesapeake is one of them.

Scott is a mother of two and a thirty year veteran of the United States Navy. She has traveled the world during her time of service, and now welcomes the opportunity to stay put in Chesapeake, running her own business and being with her family. She’s hoping Tidewater residents will support her by voting.

As the competition comes down to the wire (voting ends July 2nd), each semi-finalist, including Evelyn, has produced a short “Why I Should Win” video that is posted on the 7-Eleven franchising webpage.

7-Eleven® invited qualified women to enter the contest and consider becoming an independent business owner in celebration of it’s being voted the No. 1 franchise business, as named in Entrepreneur magazine’s 2017 Franchise 500.

The winner will be awarded a 7-Eleven fee-free franchise, a value of up to $190,000, and can choose from any of the company’s 7-Eleven convenience store franchises available in the continental U.S. at the contest’s culmination.

After July 2, the top three contenders will be determined by the number of votes their video receives. These three finalists will then have one-on-one interviews with 7-Eleven, and the winner announced in July.
