For travelers on the go, the convenience store is the only refuge between an ocean of highway and the final destination. It’s a one-stop shop for everything you need to make your trip comfortable and efficient. That’s why the highway convenience store has become an iconic part of the American way of life.
The convenience store trend starting gaining momentum when automobiles took over the newly constructed highways and roads in the 20s and 30s. Originally known as Tote’m Stores, 7 Eleven opened its first shop in Dallas in 1927. Although the franchise struggled through the impact of the Great Depression, it recovered when executives expanded business hours from 7 am to 11 pm in 1946, which inspired the name change to 7 Eleven.
By the mid-seventies, the quality of snack options featured at these roadside pit stops was shifting into high gear thanks to Ned Smith, the founder of Ne-Mo’s. When he created the now-famous carrot cake squares in 1975, it was an instant hit with all the shops. With fresh, wholesome ingredients and a made-from-scratch recipe, Ne-Mo’s Cake Squares are known for a home-baked taste in every bite.
Ne-Mo’s is excited to announce their summer giveaway contest that celebrates the convenience store tradition and its wide range of satisfying snacks and beverages. The winner will receive a $150 7 Eleven gift card and Ne-Mo’s treats, a pretty sweet deal for your next summer road trip!
