“7-Eleven … believes that Florida represents a growing market, and that the acquisition of the assets from these companies supports 7-Eleven’s desire to grow in the fuels and convenience business in Florida,” said Margaret Chabris, director of corporate communications, in the article.

In a transaction consisting of 94 controlled real estate locations, seven contracts that are fuel supply only and some related assets, reported the article, 7-Eleven and its wholly owned subsidiary SEI Fuel Services Inc. purchased the two companies.

Facilitated by Matrix Capital Markets Group Inc, continued the article, the acquisition includes c-store assets in Palm Beach, Dade, Broward County, Miami and Naples.

Several of the acquired sites are currently under consideration for rebranding as 7-Eleven c-stores, noted the article, and the gas stations will continue to sell Mobil-branded fuel.
