Circle K Corp. will move its Arizona corporate offices this fall from Papago Buttes Corporate Plaza in north Tempe to the Warner Crossing complex in south Tempe.
The convenience-store company will transfer the offices to a location that will be a more central location for its employees and to put all of the management and support personnel under one roof, said spokeswoman Alma Suarez.
Currently the state offices are located in two building at the Papago Buttes center. The new offices will be in Building C of Warner Crossing at 1130 W. Warner Road, where the company will lease more than 75,000 square feet.
An exact date has not been set for the move, but Cushman & Wakefield of Arizona, which negotiated the new lease, said the plan calls for the company to take occupancy in the new building in October.
Suarez said the number of employees to be moved has not been determined.
“We evaluated a variety of headquarters options for Circle K, and this move is reflective of the cultural identity that comes with Circle K's new ownership,” said Tom Johnson, senior director with Cushman & Wakefield. Circle K was purchased by Montreal-based Alimentation Couche-Tard, the fourth largest convenience-store retailer in North America, in December for $804 million. It previously was owned by ConocoPhillips.
