Topaz Rebrands To Circle K And Announces 240 New Jobs

Service station Topaz has announced a €55 million investment which involves a rebranding to Circle K and the creation of 240 jobs.

A total of €35m will be used to develop four new Circle K sites in the next two years, with two sites in Co Kildare and the others in Gorey, Co Wicklow, and Athlone, Co Westmeath.

The remaining €20m will be put towards rebranding Topaz, which includes in-store renovations. Over 420 services stations will be rebranded in the next two years, and while the existing food offering will remain, the Re.Store brand will be replaced.

New sites have also been completed recently in Dublin and Fermoy.

These new sites and investment plans will bring the total amount of Circle K employees to almost 2,400.

In 2016, Topaz was purchased by Canadian convenience store group Alimentation Couche-Tard (ACT). Circle K is the global fuel and convenience brand of ACT.

The chain was established in 1951 in El Paso, Texas, and now employs over 125,000 employees worldwide with 15,700 stores in over 20 countries.
