Weight Watchers to launch in 7-Eleven stores

Partnering with Dawn Foods, Weight Watchers
has cut a deal to sell individually wrapped muffins and snack cakes in
7-Eleven stores across the U.S.–the first distribution deal for the
diet company at a national convenience store. Stacy Gordon, Weight
Watchers vice president of licensing and products, says she hopes a
broader array of products will follow. 7-Eleven operates some 7,000
stores in the U.S. and is known more for hot dogs and coffee than for
healthy food.

In addition, Weight Watchers will partner
with Schreiber Foods to roll out portion-control lines of cheese and
soft-baked cookies in grocery stores. National grocery chains already
sell Weight Watchers-branded food such as candies, baked goods, yogurt,
frozen entrees and ice cream novelties.
