7-Eleven opens first Tennessee store in Murfreesboro, featuring Laredo Taco, Raise the Roost
7-Eleven opened a new store this month in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, featuring Laredo Taco Company and Raise the Roost Chicken and Biscuits—under one roof. The convenience-retailing giant continues its expansion, including units with restaurant concepts inside stores. 7-Eleven’s grand opening celebration today of the Murfreesboro outlet also marks the first location in Tennessee.
With the opening of this location, just south of Nashville, 7-Eleven created about 40 positions, hiring employees from the local market. The convenience-store retailer plans big growth in the state of Tennessee, also announcing that five of the next several openings will include on-site restaurants.
“Tennessee has a booming economy and some of the fastest-growing cities in the country,” said Brad Williams, 7-Eleven senior vice president of corporate operations and restaurant platforms. “This new store concept offers 7-Eleven-style convenience, plus two great restaurant-quality dining options—all in a single stop.”
Laredo Taco Company, 7-Eleven’s quick-service Mexican eatery, will dish out authentic tacos, served on flour tortillas, made fresh every day. There’s a robust selection of fresh salsas, as well as pico de gallo. Barbacoa, chorizo, carne asada, carnitas and breakfast tacos are part of the concept’s menu variety.
Raise the Roost Chicken and Biscuits will serve up fried chicken tenders, hand-breaded with a proprietary blend of Southern spices; flaky biscuits; bone-in and boneless wings, tossed in housemade sauces; chicken sandwiches; and breakfast sandwiches.
Both restaurants are co-located side-by-side in the 7-Eleven, which will landed at 1509 Joe B. Jackson Parkway.
The Murfreesboro 7-Eleven does carry the usual convenience items the chain is known for, including, fresh-brewed coffee, Big Gulp and Slurpee drinks, and Big Bite hot dogs. The store also offers pizza, taquitos, fresh sandwiches and salads, as well.
