History and Business Strengths: With the Circle K brand, the store achieved impressive monthly sales of nearly $100,000, operating 24 hours a day. Unfortunately, the store fell into the hands of an inexperienced operator, leading to mismanagement and neglect. Fast forward to today, the business has been revived by new owners/sellers who took charge in March. They wasted no time implementing improvements and introducing much-needed equipment. Inventory has been expanded to offer a diverse array of products.

Future Potential: The addition of a franchise or an experienced, hands-on operator promises an instant boost in sales. This store has a proven track record of high sales volume, and with the right leadership, it can reach those heights once again. Another opportunity to consider—adding a full liquor section. Obtain ABC license 21. According to the city planning department, there are no restrictions preventing a new owner from pursuing this avenue. Incorporating liquor sales could significantly enhance both revenue and the overall value of the business. Buyers are encouraged to explore the possibility of adding a renowned franchise like 7-Eleven or Circle K, or maintaining its independent charm. The strategic location of this store opens doors for both options, making it a versatile investment. Sellers vision was to transform this store into a 7-Eleven, and with the right buyer, that dream can become a reality. Extending operating hours presents yet another avenue for potential growth, as the previous owner, when the store was Circle K-branded, successfully operated it round the clock.
