With over 3,300 locations in the United States alone Circle K is a player in the convenience store sector and it was more than notable when they opened a new stores in Chicago that was the first c-store to offer prepared food such as fresh-made pizza, breakfast sandwiches.
Circle K as regular readers of this blog let me know last week was making statement with this new store that centered around grocerant niche Ready-2-Eat and Heat-N-Eat fresh prepared food. Even more impressive I was reminded that Circle K was focusing fresh food for all day-part breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacking.
Why is this such big news, simple Circle K is a wholly owned indirect subsidiary of Laval, Quebec-based Alimentation Couche-Tard Inc. and they have over 12,000 convenience stores around the world. Success does leave clues and our clue of the week Grocerant niche Ready-2-Eat and Heat-N-Eat fresh prepared food sells and will drive top line sales and bottom line profits.
