Purple To The People!

7-Eleven Slurpee Trucks Bringing FREE "Purple to the People" Slurpee Drink to Chicago, IL


What: 7-Eleven deployed five Slurpee Trucks from Dallas headed for Capitol Hill and the trucks are stopping along the way to bring the American people the "Purple to the People" exclusive Slurpee drink FREE.

Why: In the wake of President Barack Obama's statement that Slurpee is a "very delicious drink," 7-Eleven and Slurpee are going to bring Slurpee drinks to our nation's capitol and our nation's people along the way.

Where: 3407 N. Halsted St. Chicago, IL 60645.

When: Tuesday, November 9 from 4 p.m. - 6 p.m.


DALLAS (Nov. 4, 2010) - Early yesterday, President Barack Obama jokingly told a Bloomberg reporter he might serve America's favorite drink, the Slurpee, during an upcoming meeting with the incoming House Speaker, Ohio Rep. John Boehner and referred to it as "a very delicious drink."

"We are not surprised by President Obama's comments about Slurpee, which is non-partisan and has been bringing people together for more than 40 years," said Joe DePinto, 7-Eleven, Inc.'s president and CEO. "We have made an offer to the White House to install Slurpee machines and to host a Slurpee Summit."

In addition to offering to host a Slurpee Summit, the Slurpee trucks will leave Dallas Friday for Washington, D.C., and share the "delicious drink" with the American people along the way.

To further commemorate President Obama's momentous mention, 7-Eleven also is offering to install Slurpee machines at the White House and in Rep. Boehner's office on Capitol Hill.

7-Eleven is bringing Slurpee to the people by embarking on this tour making stops at capital cities along the way. Though mixing and matching flavors is a standard practice of our loyal Slurpee fans, people on the Slurpee truck route can also join in on the mixing gig. They can show their patriotic colors by trying or mixing a red, white or blue Slurpee drinks or show their unity by choosing our new flavor, "Purple for the People." Slurpee fans know that when you bring different flavors together the result is always better.
