Minal & I have been a franchisee of 7-Eleven for the last 14 years. We currently operate 7 stores, located in Addison, Itasca, Schaumburg, LaGrange, Bollingbrook, & 2 Lake Forest Tollway stores out of which 5 are Gasoline operations. I have been a member of FOAC for 14 years, served as a board member for 4 years, 2 years as the Vice-President and currently serving the association as the President. I bring lots of value to the association not limited to strong & bold leadership, deep system knowledge, management skills and the ability and willingness to help my fellow franchisees and stand up for their rights. 3 characteristics that define me are that I am a Bold Leader, Good Listener, Willing to help others. I am willing to be on call 24/7 to serve this association. I have been involved with FOAC board already and I love what I am doing. Helping franchisees and fixing systemic issues by working closely with 7-Eleven management team is my interest. I am not only running for the board of directors, but also will be looking to run for an executive seat. Which means I will be involved in each and every committee.
