Marathon’s Speedway Purchased by 7-Eleven, Could Impact Speedway Gas Stations at Walt Disney World Resort

The Speedway gas stations at Walt Disney World Resort could soon transform into 7-Elevens, thanks to a major new purchase by Japanese-based Seven & i Holdings Co. (Oh, thank heaven!)

According to Bloomberg, 7-Eleven has agreed to purchase Marathon Petroleum Corporation’s Speedway gas stations for $21 billion dollars.

This acquisition will add 3,900 stores to 9,800 locations. The deal is the second-largest purchase of a U.S. target this year. Previously, Seven & i Holdings Co., Ltd. (7-Eleven franchiser) spent $3.3 billion three years ago to also buy Sunoco LP gas stations.

Once Universal’s rights to The Simpsons expires, they should turn one of these into a Qwik-e-Mart just to shake things up. After all, it’s Disney IP.
