7-Eleven Opens First Store to Feature Both Laredo Taco and Raise the Roost

by Katie Lee

Nashville, Tenn. — 7-Eleven is debuting Tennessee’s first new-build store in the town of Murfreesboro, south of Nashville. The new store will be the very first to feature the convenience retailer’s two most popular restaurant concepts — the Laredo Taco Company® and Raise the Roost® Chicken and Biscuits — under one roof.

Not only that, but the opening marks the expansion of the convenience retailer’s footprint in the state in a big way. The Murfreesboro location will be one of many stores opening in the greater Nashville area in 2021 — five of which will have one or more on-site restaurants. While 7-Eleven operates more than 40 stores in Tennessee, seven with Laredo Taco Company restaurants, the Murfreesboro store will house the state’s first Raise the Roost.

Laredo Taco Company is 7-Eleven’s take on authentic Mexican food, and is famous for its authentic tacos, which are served on flour tortillas made fresh every day, and its fresh salsa bar.

Raise the Roost is 7-Eleven’s Southern-inspired chicken concept restaurant that presents a simple menu with made-to-order and grab-and-go options.

Both restaurants will be set side-by-side inside the Murfreesboro store, with separate ordering counters and shared indoor and outdoor seating.

“Tennessee has a booming economy and some of the fastest-growing cities in the country,” says Brad Williams, 7-Eleven’s 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.”
