7?Eleven, Inc. has forged a new partnership with Tapingo, the leading mobile commerce application for college campuses, to launch on-demand delivery of 7?Eleven products in the college market. Tapingo users at or near the participating colleges in California, Arizona, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Maryland can enjoy delivery of 7?Eleven products from select, neighboring 7?Eleven stores.
Focusing on the college market, Tapingo has built strong relationships with more than 100 colleges that use Tapingo to enhance student life. By working closely with forward-looking campuses that prioritize student engagement, Tapingo helps broaden the reach of campus dining services to satisfy the needs of students.
“We’ve seen a tremendous demand from students for late-night eats. Sometimes, you just need a Slurpee and a pizza at 1 a.m.,” said Jeff Hardy, Tapingo’s chief business officer. “Welcoming 7?Eleven to our rapidly growing partner ecosystem significantly increases our ability to provide students with what they want, when they want it. The 7?Eleven brand is synonymous with convenience, and that’s exactly what our community looks to us to provide.”
Tapingo users can browse the 7?Eleven aisles through the app and have their items delivered quickly and efficiently. Hardy added, “Tapingo is the most affordable and convenient delivery service for colleges. Using the Club Tapingo feature, which also provides exclusive promotions and VIP treatment, Tapingo users pay a $2.99 delivery charge, but no additional service fees.”
