Why would you open a Circle K Franchise?

The convenience store industry marked its fourth consecutive year of growth in 2006, "surging 15%," as reported by the National Association of Convenience Stores. Industry sales revenues reached $569.4 billion in 2006, recording a $74.1 billion increase (17.9%) over 2005, and almost doubling sales from 2002. In-store sales rose 8.3% in 2006, as compared to a 5% increase in 2005.

We may be biased, but we think the convenience store industry – already massive in size – is poised for even greater growth in the future.

You get national brand recognition, consistent messaging across all Circle K's to extend your reach and advertising buck, centralized purchasing power, and established vendor relationships. You’ll be so busy helping customers that you may feel pressed for time. But in reality, the assistance saves you time and frees you to focus on your customers.

Why Circle K?

So why franchise with Circle K? Because it’s a win-win proposition for you. If you are already an independent store owner with little or no local competition, Circle K can provide you operational advantages to keep you on top. If you’re an independent store owner who competes against a large, nationally recognized convenience store chain, you need to have a powerful brand of your own – Circle K – to help you retain your existing customers and attract new ones.

This is an initial opportunity for you to review the offering and for us to get to know you before any agreement is signed or fees are paid. It also allows you to experience first hand the typical convenience store duties for both the customer service representatives (CSR’s) and the site management.

Our state of the art facility integrates In-store and Classroom Learning, giving you a true feel for the activities and responsibilities of running a Circle K. The program includes Business Management, Accounting, Marketing, Category Management, Safety and Security, Human Resources and Inventory Management programs.

The CD-ROM learning curriculum that is used in all Circle K company-operated stores offers you the opportunity to expertly instruct your employees.

Our continuing education and training programs reinforce the initial learning and keep you up-to-date with the new operational, customer service, and merchandising programs. These materials are continually updated and available through the web page.
