Canadian convenience store retailer Alimentation Couche-Tard (Couche-Tard) has unveiled full-service franchise opportunities for its Circle K brand in Ontario.
Couche-Tard noted that the franchise opportunity has been introduced by the company in order to improve brand visibility and growth in the province.
Circle K worldwide franchise vice-president Matt McCure said: “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 services.
“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.”
Circle K said that the franchise opportunities will begin immediately and the new franchise locations will complement Couche-Tard’s existing stores in North America.
According to the franchise proposal, the new franchise store will receive comprehensive training, continued education about the brand, and operational support from the company.
The new franchise stores will also be able to access Circle K’s popular private brands and display the Circle K logo.
