Raise Your Slurpees High

John P. Thompson, Convenience Store Pioneer, Has Died at 77. Thompson took over as CEO of 7-11 when they only had 600 stores. During his watch they introduced the Slurpee, fresh-brewed coffee-to-go, and the Big Gulp. Hey, I work in the industry, whaddya want?

I bet no one gets points in the ATS Dead Pool, though.

    well, i’d say it’s rather sad but i’m not feeling the sadness. just a monumental love for the slurpee.
