Convenience store chain 7-Eleven has opened a store in Vientiane, marking its entry into Laos.

Located on Souphanouvong Avenue, the store features 7-Eleven’s signature retail environment and serves the chain’s internationally popular products and beverages.

CP All Laos, a Thai-controlled master franchisee of 7-Eleven International, says it is also looking into opportunities to offer Laotian meals.

CP All Laos is a subsidiary of CP All, which operates more than 14,000 7-Eleven stores in Thailand and Cambodia. The company now plans to open more stores throughout Laos.

“With its thriving economy and growing population, Laos offers an excellent environment for 7‑Eleven’s first retail venture in the region,” said 7-Eleven International co-CEOs Shin Abe and Ken Wakabayashi. 

“Our entrance into the country brings Laotian customers a one-stop-shop solution with quality fresh food and convenience needs, via a store format not currently prevalent in the market.”

The store opening marks the 20th country and region for 7-Eleven.
