Circle K Sunkus (サークルKサンクス Sākuru K Sankusu ) is a chain of company-operated and franchised convenience stores in Japan. The company is a division of UNY Co., Ltd., which licensed the Circle K name from Alimentation Couche-Tard, a Canadian convenience store company that owns the Circle K brand.
Sunkus and Circle K Japan formed an equity and business alliance in October of 1998.
The franchiser, Sunkus & Associates Inc. officially merged with Circle K Japan Co., Ltd. as of the September 1, 2004 fiscal year and is now officially Circle K Sunkus Co., Ltd (株式会社サークルKサンクス). The two brands remain separate - convenience stores owned by the company either have a Sunkus sign or a Circle K sign.
The word "Sunkus" is a combination of the words "Sun" and "Thanks,"  meant to be pronounced as the Japanese interpret the word "Thanks," and its logo is a combination of the words "Sun", "Kids", and "Us".
