LAVAL, Quebec -- Since acquiring 90 Spectrum Stores, Alimentation Couche-Tard, Circle K's parent company, has begun their transition with the deployment of FuelQuest's Fuel Management System at all of the acquired locations.
"For growth companies, such as Alimentation Couche-Tard, it is critical to quickly link new locations into FuelQuest's system and assure fuel is supplied when and where it is needed," said Scott Cilento, vice president of operations for FuelQuest. "Circle K has a rich history of being an industry innovator, and this implementation provides unprecedented operational transparency and productivity gains that can scale with the company as it expands."
It took less than two hours for the new stores to go live with the fuel management service once the data from each location was acquired. "Circle K's internal team was instrumental in the FMS deployment and ensured a smooth transition with no disruption to the company's operations," Cilento added.
FuelQuest is Circle K's nationwide fuel management solution, used at more than 2,000 stores. The company was able to install FuelQuest in all the Spectrum locations without additional overhead or administration costs.
The Spectrum Stores are located in Georgia and Alabama. Thirty-one sold BP fuel, seven sold Shell fuel and the remainder sold LoBucks and Spectrum brands. Thirty-five of the locations have drive-through car washes and 13 have quick-service restaurants, seven of which are company-operated. Couche-Tard bought the land and buildings for 58 of the locations, with the rest under leases.
