The convenience store, CVS in short, is a kind of retail business that satisfies customers’ emergent needs and convenience. The convenience store industry has thrived in Thailand in recent years. Especially as a Japanese convenience store, 7-ELEVEN witnesses more than 10,000 stores in 2018 after CP ALL has obtained the franchising in Thailand. With such sound momentum, it is necessary to analyze and study its business strategies and provide a reference for the development of Chinese convenience stores.
Beginning with a brief history of 7-ELEVEN’s development in Japan and Southeast Asia, this paper analyzes 7-ELEVEN’s marketing methods in Thailand through such means as SWOT, 4P, PEST, Five Forces, and internal and external environment analysis, defines 7-ELEVEN’s operating characteristics, summarizes its success factors, identifies its existing deficiencies, and points out the direction for the future development.
