Tom,

Biz2Credit (www.biz2credit.com) finances a large no. of franchises. 7-11 is not a good investment as of now as getting bank finance is impossible. The franchisor does not allow the lending institution to take 1st lien on the business and also while trying to sell want a big cut. Biz2Credit will recommend not to invest in a 7-11 as of now.

I don't know about Arizona, but we do not normally list or sell 7-11s, in Maryland. The franchise formula is questionable, in terms of real value to the operator. Moreover, they cannot be funded by conventional loans, precisely because of the odd franchise system. Finally, when you go to sell, the majority of the value goes to the Franchisor, rather than to the operator.

All-in-all, we view it as a rather bad investment. If your goal is to buy yourself a job, rather than looking for an investment, then it may be okay for you. We don't deal with them.
