Just read this in an article regarding 7-Eleven’s decision to market it’s own brand of gasoline:

“7-Eleven is the world’s largest convenience store operator, with chains in 20 countries. It is owned by Japan’s Seven & I Holdings Co. Ltd.”

Ever wonder how many American based companies are really US owned? I remember back when I was in school doing some research that really surprised me back then. I’m guessing the number of major companies that are really US owned would shock most Americans if they took the time to look.

I’m going to start a new series on US owned / non owned companies…the results may surprise you.
