Last July 11, 7-Eleven opened the doors to its 2000th Crunch Time store in San Fernando, Pampanga, to make its iconic fried chicken meal within reach to Filipino consumers.

While Crunch Time, is known for its fried chicken meal, over the years, it has also been known for offering interesting spins to its recipe such as the Sriracha Chicken.

“We’re very proud of this amazing feat of being able to be closer to more Filipinos and satisfy their fried chicken cravings.

Some patrons took to social media to compliment the new store.

“Cozy vibe. It looks really pleasing to the eyes. Sana ganyan na din sa ibang store branches ninyo,” a Facebook user said.

“Kapag ganito po 7-eleven sa Gulod lagi po ako kakain,” another commented.
