Alain Bouchard was always certain he would start his own company. Before taking the plunge, he worked for his brother at the Perrette store in Bois-des-Filion, where he discovered his interest in convenience stores. He opened his first convenience store in 1980 and surrounded himself with four complementary and ambitious partners. With them, he gradually built his empire by making multiple acquisitions and passing on his vision of success. Throughout his entrepreneurial career, Alain believed in himself and his team. Thanks to this confidence, he achieved his dream of creating a large company. Today, the Couche-Tard network has over 15,000 stores and 125,000 employees.
