Langevin and Franchising 

Langevin has worked in the real estate and construction world for more than 27 years. During that time, he became an expert in all aspects of the development of real estate. This includes site selection, design, engineering, permitting and entitlement as well as construction, maintenance, and project management.

He has spent the last two decades working for Couche-Tard, a corporate retail company in the convenience store industry that manages Circle K and more. The corporation owned many franchises including Subway, A&W, Coffee Depot, Dunkin’, and more. Throughout his time with Couche-Tard, Langevin focused on working with franchisors and developing sites across North America. 

“Franchising helps accelerate the development of new stores, and the collaboration between the franchisee and the franchisor is the key to success. Many franchisees have limited real estate experience, so I help them find the best location possible for their business. Helping business professionals be successful is what truly attracted me to the franchise world.”

Langevin advises entrepreneurs looking to get into franchising to focus on location. “Once you open a new business, you can’t change the location, the traffic, or the egress/ingress. Most of the time, paying more to have a better site is the key to success versus being two blocks from success. Real estate criteria is easy – it’s always location, location, and location.”
