William J. Bresler and Walter R. Schaub founded Convenient Food Mart, one of
the first and one of the best convenience store chains, in Chicago in 1958. Their idea was to provide customers a supermarket
in miniature, which would be located in the customer’s neighborhood and perhaps owned by one of the neighbors. The new
store they envisioned would be open seven days a week, from early morning until late at night or 24 hours a day.
This concept was launched in the nation’s heartland and immediately proved
successful. The next step was to share this formula for success with others who could profit from CFM’s experience and
help to spread the concept across the nation. The result was a winning combination of proven concept and individual entrepreneurs
joined together in a nationwide chain of franchised Convenient Food Mart stores.
Convenient Food Mart now has approximately 325 stores throughout the United
We think the choice is clear. A CFM franchise offers you an ideal way to realize
your dreams of independence and the opportunity for financial security for yourself and your family. CFM, the best way to
be in business for yourself but not by yourself.
