No retail chain has more outlets than 7-Eleven and the convenience store operator is still growing. The company says it added 5K stores in 2012 and will hit 50K stores by the end of Q1. It's a pace of expansion which should draw the notice of quick-stop rivals Dunkin' Donuts (DNKN -0.2%), Starbucks (SBUX -1.2%), and McDonald's (MCD -0.2%).

  • If convenience stores who accept snap cards ever started with a 'courtesy shuttle' program for the poor, they would do booming business.
