Why 7-Eleven Failed In Indonesia

14694 ratings | 669755 views
Indonesia's first 7-Eleven opened in 2009 and became a popular hangout spot for consumers. At their peak in the Southeast Asian country, they numbered 190 stores, offering free Wi-Fi and a seating area for guests while selling fresh local meals and traditional 7-Eleven snacks like the Slurpee. Despite the chain's popularity, the franchisee, PT Modern Internasional, shuttered all remaining 161 stores there in 2017. » Subscribe to CNBC: http://cnb.cx/SubscribeCNBC About CNBC: From 'Wall Street' to 'Main Street' to award winning original documentaries and Reality TV series, CNBC has you covered.

Simple, the products mostly are expensive import snacks. Indomaret which is the very first in indonesia, and its rival, alfamart, their products are cheaper.

you wanna buy some snacks? go to warung... warung didn't have the item? go to indomart... or alfamart... you want to buy vegetables or meat in large bulk? go to traditional market... you want to buy soaps or other amenities in bulk? go to traditional market too... or carefour... or indogrosir... or whatever coffee? starbucks... or just buy the sachets from warung for 2000 rupiah (supposedly 1,700 but who cares) the only thing we go for 7 eleven is the hangout area... free wifi is free~ whee~ (Ps. it's not that impressive either)

7 eleven is not even a cozy place to hangout, they don't have any competitive advantage to compete

I think the Indonesia government shuts the 7-eleven store in Indonesia for selling the alcohol drink. As we know Indonesia is a traditional Muslim country and also religion come first rather than technology in this world. That’s why the country still can’t develop and low education. This is very pity for Indonesia and their people.
ucuz12 (3 hours ago)
BS, the govt didn't shut 7 eleven, alcohol is the only competitive advantage that they have, when the govt ban selling it from convenient store, 7 11 ceased out from business. And I don't see any correlation between being developed and alcohol, alcoholics are also a problem in developed country, and selling alcohol doesn't automatically make your country developed.

From experience, 7-Eleven is not price competitive, they sell imported beverage which is not cheap.

That’d be because Indonesia already has Circle K, Alfamart and Indomaret. There i save you 4 minutes of watching this vid.

This is all because Indonesian has no shame. When they put something for free, Indonesians will take it for granted. Free sauce? They would bring a container from home and fill it. Also, when a store put a free wifi, usually people will buy many right? But Indonesian don't think like that, they will just come, use it, without paying anything. If they are forced to, most of the time they will buy the cheapest thing in the store.

most of them are teenagers, they don'y have a lot of money
ucuz12 (3 hours ago)
Yeah let's blame the customer, of course its because us right? Not because their incompetence, their bad strategy and their inability to understand the market. If you own a business and have this kind of thinking, you'll bankrupt in no time.
