Starting July 1, select stores in San Francisco and Oakland, Calif., will offer the on-demand delivery of select 7-Eeleven products through the Postmates app.

"7‑Eleven's founder, Joe C. Thompson Jr., used to say 7‑Eleven's mission was to 'give customers what they want, when and where they want it'," said Raja Doddala, 7‑Eleven's vice president of innovation and Omni channel strategy."Through the modern-day technology that Postmates provides, we can fulfill that promise in a way we haven't done before."
The company has plans to expand delivery later this year to other areas with a high density of 7-Eleven stores, including Austin, New York, Los Angeles, Washington, D.C. and Chicago.
