Deal Concluded With Puma Energy To Roll Out More Sites

This morning, Millat Convenience and Puma energy concluded an agreement that will see an accelerated roll out of Circle K stores on Puma Energy forecourts across the country.

The agreement is a clear sign of the confidence two major international brands have in South Africa’s future in the short term could create around 2000 jobs.

The Puma Energy forecourt deal comes just weeks after Circle K owner Alimentation Couche-Tard and Millat Convenience concluded a franchise agreement to bring the global convenience retailer to South Africa. 

The Circle K partnership grants Millat an exclusive license to develop stores in the country. Five more stores are set to open in Gauteng and North West Province in the coming weeks, including a stand-alone operation at the University of Johannesburg which will open in late January 2023.

With Puma Energy on board, Circle K has a growth platform that will allow the Circle K brand to improve the convenience store space in South Africa.

Janet Sithole, Non-Fuels Retail Manager for Africa says: “This is the start of an exciting new chapter in Puma Energy’s story in South Africa. Like Puma Energy, Circle K is known around the world for its commitment to quality and excellent customer service. This partnership aligns with our plans to create high-quality fuel and convenience outlets where customers can access all their fuel and daily shopping needs at clean, friendly and convenient retail sites.”

Puma Energy has a network of 112 retail sites across South Africa with a variety of convenience retail offerings, car washes and fast-food outlets.
