Some people wield strength, whether it is mental or physical. Some people lead by example and provide a model for success to those under their supervision. For others, leadership requires the opportunity to confront problems and resolve obstacles. Others, on the other hand, value the ability to remain calm and carry on regardless of the circumstances. Leadership means a lot more to our speaker tonight. Yeah, Joe DePinto is a role model who has shown his ability to turn even the most challenging business obstacles into opportunities. Joe’s leadership, on the other hand, has a deeper meaning. It’s at the heart of his job as CEO of the world’s largest convenience store chain. It’s also at the heart of 7-Eleven’s corporate culture. Joe takes the lead by serving first.

In San Diego, a new-age 10,000-square-foot 7-Eleven convenience store will open next month, with an in-store fast-casual taco shop with homemade tortillas, a craft beer growler filling station, self-serve frozen snacks, and a specialty drink counter.
Last spring, 7-Eleven opened the first next-generation “evolution store” in Dallas, and it announced two new locations this week: Washington, D.C., and San Diego’s Usual Heights neighborhood. The in-house fast-casual restaurant Laredo Taco Company, which makes homemade flour tortillas daily and offers all-day breakfast, lunch, and dinner options, as well as a fresh salsa bar, is one of the most exciting aspects of the new 7-Eleven Evolution Store. The taqueria, along with Stripes convenience stores in South Texas, was bought from Suncoco in 2018 as part of a 1,000-store acquisition. Barbacoa, chorizo, carne asada, carnitas, and breakfast tacos made with fresh-cracked eggs are among the taco specialties. A variety of plates are also available on the menu.

7-Eleven, Inc. (stylized as 7n) is a convenience store chain based in Dallas, Texas, United States. The first location of the chain, an ice house in Dallas, opened in 1927. Between 1928 and 1946, it was known as Tote’m Shops. After Japanese affiliate Ito-Yokado bought 70% of the company in 1991, it was reorganized as a wholly owned subsidiary of Seven-Eleven Japan Co., Ltd in 2005, and is now owned by Chiyoda, Tokyo-based Seven & I Holdings Co., Ltd. [two]
The company’s first stores, nicknamed “Tote’m Stores” because consumers “toted” their purchases away, were located in Dallas. In front of some shops, there were genuine “native” totem poles. To represent the company’s fresh, extended hours, 7:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m., seven days a week, the chain’s name was changed from “Tote’m” to “7-Eleven” in 1946.  The corporate name of the United States business was changed from “The Southland Corporation” to “7-Eleven Inc.” in November 1999.

Book club episode 22: dune part 22
We were well-prepared as a couple planning to create our first dream house, and probably our final home, with an adequate portfolio of inspiring pictures and our proverbial “must have” checklist. Despite our naive optimism about the process, we were a little nervous going into our first meeting with the SCH team, as we wondered if any of our grandiose proposals would be dismissed. Nothing could have been further from the fact, as SCH not only accepted but also expanded on our ideas. They showed us examples of previous homes with these same design features and facilities to demonstrate their expertise. Indeed, some of our inspiration photographs were taken from homes that they had previously constructed. Any apprehensions we had going into this meeting were quickly replaced by confidence in SCH’s “can-do” attitude and demonstrated experience. Our hopes stayed alive because we knew we’d met the people who could make them a reality.
Many anecdotal stories abound of people blowing their home-building budgets, but our experience was the polar opposite. We stuck to our budget and contingency plan. This was due to the fact that this team was interested in our design process. When the architect and designer presented their proposals, SCH was totally upfront and clear about the expense of each desired object. We got regular budget notifications during the construction period. Fortunately, we were able to divert funds to update other specifics when we found ourselves under budget on certain products. Furthermore, we did not incur any unforeseen extra costs as a result of our constant contact.
