Expansion for Circle K department offices in Regency | approves Jax Daily Record | Jacksonville Daily Record
Circle K South Atlantic has been approved for expansion in Regency to relocate the Waycross, Georgia division office.
Jacksonville-based Duckworth Construction Co. is the contractor for the $ 219,399 project at 9485 Regency Square Blvd. Lane Architecture is the architect.
The city granted the permit on November 6th.
The international convenience store chain is expanding an area of 11,147 square meters on the fourth floor of the five-story North Regency One building in North Regency Executive Park.
Heather Risener, brand, communications and advertising director for the Circle K South Atlantic Division, said Sept. 30 that the office will employ up to 60 people. Most live in the Jacksonville area or are planning to move.
Risener said that Kreis K will publish positions for vacancies.
She said the move was tentatively scheduled by the end of November, although this could be adjusted.
“We believe that moving our corporate headquarters to Jacksonville offers us opportunities in a variety of areas of our business,” Risener said via email.
“With the international airport nearby, it will be easier for vendors to visit between companies. We also believe Jacksonville could offer us better opportunities for our future growth. “
Risener said that with more than 100 Circle K stores in the Jacksonville area and “everything Jacksonville has to offer” “it makes perfect sense to call it our new home.”
According to Risener, Circle K has 13 department offices in North America, eight department offices in Europe and four in Canada.
She said the South Atlantic Division office will house corporate departments such as marketing, finance, facilities, fuel, human resources, IT, construction and real estate.
It supports 402 stores in North Florida and South Georgia.
Circle K is part of Alimentation Couche-Tard, a Quebec-based international owner of gas stations and convenience stores. Circle K’s US headquarters are located in Tempe, Arizona.
County K began in Texas in 1951. Alimentation Couche-Tard Inc. bought the company in 2003.
Food brands include Circle K, Kangaroo Express, Holiday, and On the Run.
Alimentation Couche-Tard’s bought The Pantry Inc. in 2015 and renamed Pantry’s Area Kangaroo Express Stores to Circle K.
In early 2017, Circle K reached an agreement to acquire the gas station and convenience store chain CST Brands in San Antonio, Texas. As part of the deal, Circle K acquired 1,146 CST-branded C-stores, of which 164 are Flash Foods stores in Georgia.
