Depending on your opinion of 7-Eleven, it’s either good news or bad news for summer travel that the chain is opening its first location inside a US airport terminal. Slurpees, bacon-wrapped hot dogs, pizza and more are on the terminal menu at LAX, otherwise known as Los Angeles International Airport starting June 24th.
If it is as successful as 7-Eleven and its airport operator hopes, this could be the first of many US airport locations.
The airport 7-Eleven is in the pre-security arrivals level of the Tom Bradley International Terminal, which means you won’t be able to take your Big Gulp or Slurpee on the plane.
Unlike the typical 7-Eleven store, the airport location is open 6am to midnight.
The outpost will offer fresh and hot foods, much of it in “grab and go” packaging, plus beverages and snacks and travel-size personal care products we often forget to pack.
The menu includes an LA favorite – The Dodger Dog, the same 10-inch long frankfurter that is wrapped in a steam bun and sold at Dodger Stadium, but for only $2.11. 7-Eleven is the only retailer licensed to sell this dog outside the stadium.
- pizza, both whole and by the slice;
- chicken wings and tenders,
- Go-Go Taquitos, nachos and mini-tacos, Doritos Loaded,
- breakfast sandwiches and empanadas,
- Big Bite® hot dogs including a bacon-wrapped version
- Baked goods – both fresh and packaged, including Cinnabon Gooey Bites
Fresh-made-daily sandwiches include Italian Sub, Cranberry Chicken Salad, American foot-long sub, Chicken Bacon Ranch Melt, and Smoked Turkey and Cheese. Plus entree and side salads, fresh cut fruit, hummus, guacamole, yogurt parfaits and more.
Just in case you wanted to know:With more than 56,000 stores in 16 countries, 7-Eleven has more locations than any other retailer or restaurant in the world. There are nearly 60 7-Eleven stores in airports in 12 other countries.
