7-Eleven Opens Green Food Center on Long Island

7-Eleven opened a new environmentally friendly facility on Long Island to prepare and distribute food. The distribution center will serve 674 7-Eleven stores across Long Island, Greater NYC, New Jersey and Eastern Pennsylvania.

The stores place orders each morning for sandwiches, salads, entrees and other fresh foods, which are prepared for them in the commissary’s 72,000-square-foot kitchen.

The facility qualified for gas efficiency rebates, and rate incentives from National Grid, the local utility. Because the site lacked access to a municipal sanitary sewer system, 7-Eleven invested in a gas-energy mixing system to treat the site’s water before discharging it.

“7-Eleven and Norris Food Services choosing to build this high-tech, ‘green’ facility in our area is very important to our community because the business brings employment opportunities within a facility that embraces and showcases sustainability,” said Phil Nolan, Supervisor, Town of Islip.
