WEEKENDEDITION The convenience store chain 7-Eleven has made a valiant New York City push over the last few years – building up a portfolio of 37 Manhattan stores. However, the Slurpee shop’s top four highest-grossing franchises aren’t in the city, but on Long Island.

Buoyed by summertime pleasure seekers, the top four highest-grossing 7-Elevens are located in East Patchogue, Southampton, Farmingville and Montauk, according to the New York Post.

The top-earning stop goes to the 653 Montauk Highway location, which according to franchisee Chris Stephens and a spokesperson for the Dallas-based chain, generates revenue in the low millions each year.

Customers spend an estimate $100,000 on beer and $50,000 on coffee each month. The franchise also sells between 500 and 800 Slurpees a day.

“Every week [in summer], it starts all over again,” Stephens told The Post. “It’s like a whole new group needs beach umbrellas, lawn chairs, suntan lotion and on and on.” [NYP]Christopher Cameron

    The two previous Delis on main street went belly up, replaced by high end clothing stores. They fought the chain, the chain won and now the residents have a 7-eleven to replace the delis.
