In the decades that 7-Eleven has stood in the Philippines, it has worked multiple purposes. Aside from serving as, most obviously, a 24/7 convenience store, its many branches have also become common meet-up places before barkada trips.
Recently, the iconic establishment has further evolved for the needs (or must we say, convenience?) of its customers. Now open is the first 7-Eleven drive-thru store in the Philippines!
What to know about the 7-Eleven drive-thru store
Judging from the photos posted on the official Facebook page of 7-Eleven Philippines, the drive-thru branch carries the quintessential 7-Eleven elements: a modest building with everything you need inside. You can apparently order whatever you want — from hotdogs and siopaos to coffee and sodas. (Naturally, you won’t get to steal free refills this way.)
Other than the drive-thru feature, customers can also park their cars to dine at the branch. Inside, there are several tables and chairs that are fortunately socially distanced from one another. However, with the pandemic still ongoing, ordering from your vehicle is still the best way to go. After all, this 7-Eleven drive-thru branch finally lets you get all you need from the store with minimal physical contact. So, if you have a car, why bother getting out at all?
If you were planning to walk down the aisles of canned goods and chips and random skincare products, we recommend that you save this for after the pandemic. The store has a huge quick menu outside for customers to choose what to buy sans the risk of contracting a virus.
Where to find 7-Eleven’s drive-thru branch
You can now visit the first 7-Eleven drive-thru store at SBGP FSI Commercial Complex in Subic Bay Gateway Park, Subic Bay Freeport Zone. As of writing, this branch is open from 4am to 12mn.
