Description

Circle K’s journey is marked by strategic expansion and growth. From its inception, Circle K rapidly increased its retail footprint through a series of acquisitions, incorporating diverse outlets into the Circle K brand. By 1975, the U.S. alone boasted 1,000 Circle K stores. Expanding its horizons globally, Circle K ventured into the international market in 1979 with the establishment of the first Circle K stores in Japan through a licensing agreement. The company’s success soared, reaching $1 billion in sales by 1984.

A pivotal moment came in 1999 with the introduction of a franchise program, providing a platform for entrepreneurs to build thriving businesses under the Circle K brand. In 2003, Circle K entered a new chapter when acquired by Alimentation Couche-Tard, evolving into a global brand with a presence in over 20 countries.
