For nearly a century, convenience store chain 7-Eleven has been quenching consumer thirsts with Big Gulps, Slurpees, and other refreshments. Worldwide, there are more than twice as many 7-Eleven stores (71,100 and counting) as there are McDonald’s restaurant's (an impressive 34,000). As the world celebrates 7-Eleven Day on July 11, take a look at 11 times the company has served up some controversy. In 2020, 7-Eleven locations in Japan drew fire on social media for what some consumers alleged was a misleading sandwich. In 1984, the National Federation for Decency picketed 7-Eleven locations with signs reading “Slurpees yes, porno no,” a response to the chain's distribution of Playboy magazine.
