Enter the 7-Eleven® Women's Franchise Giveaway Contest #empowerwomen #entrepreneurs #charity #womensfranchisegiveaway

We're so excited to share with you this amazing Women's Franchise Giveaway Contest sponsored by 7-Eleven! Did you know that less than one-third of franchised businesses in the U.S. are owned by women? 

7-Eleven, Inc. wants to increase these numbers by giving qualified women the chance to become independent business owners. Through this competition, one deserving woman will be awarded a 7-Eleven fee-free franchise of their own, valued at up to $190,000.

So How Does it Work?
The Women's Franchise Giveaway Contest is a multi-phase competition which includes meeting company franchising qualifications, preliminary interviews, video contest and a final one-on-one interview with 7-Eleven senior leadership for the top finalists.
Qualified applicants will submit an essay and talk to 7-Eleven franchise sales representatives.
After  they've narrowed down the applicants, the top 25 candidates will be invited to submit a video about why they deserve a 7-Eleven franchise. Up to seven videos will be selected for the semifinal competition. By voting for their favorite videos on the 7-Eleven Facebook page, the public will select three finalists to be interviewed by 7-Eleven's franchise department management and narrowed to one winner.

But Wait, There's More!

7-Eleven will also make a donation to the winning woman's charity of choice that aligns with the Project A-Game program. If you aren't familiar with Project A-Game, which helps to fund youth programs related to education, fitness, safety and hunger relief, we encourage you check it out here.
