Folks in our office in Cebu, all with giant slurpees! 7-Eleven has finally opened a branch in Cebu, and I understand several others will follow soon. I never thought a drink would cause such a frenzy, but the Slurpee’s reputation precedes itself. Could it be that the television show “GLEE” has put the spotlight back on this “brain freeze” causing “classic”? Hahaha. I know, I don’t normally do announcements like this, but the owners of 7-Eleven are family friends, and I happened to pass by this store just after the official ribbon cutting today, 7-11. July 11, get it? :)
The bright and airy store has a second floor with simple tables and chairs. I guess more and more folks are using 7-Elevens for quick economical meals in addition to purchases of convenience items, snacks and sweets.
They had a lot of customers by late afternoon, and with special promos, I picked some prizes out of a box and actually got a PHP15 discount and two sachets of shampoo for free! :)
But there’s another reason I am thrilled 7-Eleven is located at the Escario Centrale strip mall on Escario Street… Just 15 meters across the driveway, we are going to open our biggest Zubuchon restaurant yet. A 210m2 two level Zubuchon that we hope will open by early September 2012… Congratulations to the folks at 7-Eleven, we look forward to being your neighbors soon!
