Alimentation Couche-Tard Inc., with over 15,000 stores globally, is introducing new full-service franchise opportunities with its Circle K brand in Canada.
The expansion marks the first time the Circle K brand will be franchised in Canada with the offer initially targeting the Ontario province. Interested parties will be able to join a world-wide network of company-owned and licensed stores.
Circle K’s entrance into the Ontario franchise market begins immediately and aims to foster the growth of the brand in the rapidly developing province. The franchise locations will also complement Couche-Tard’s nearly 10,000 stores in North America, including over 2,200 in Canada. The proposal includes access to Circle K’s popular private brands, comprehensive training and continued education of the brand, and total operational and marketing support. The new franchise stores will display the Circle K logo, which is a beacon for customers across the globe looking for an easy shopping experience.
“At Circle K, we are committed to growing our brand globally and look forward to providing business partners in Ontario with the full range of Circle K branded products and service,” added Matt McCure, vice president, Circle K Worldwide Franchise. “We are excited that through this franchise offer, more retailers will be able to join us in our mission to become the world’s preferred destination for convenience and fuel.”
