Côté-Reco is a franchisor, expert in banner management and distributor footwear and clothing. The group relies on their family values that enable them to manage their activities with incredible flexibility.
Côté-Reco’s business sectors are large, but still stay connected. We apply both vertical and horizontal integration with our franchise owners and banners, through a trading office, factories, a warehouse facility, in addition to a distribution centre and retail stores.
Côté-Reco’s history begins in Deschaillons-sur-Saint-Laurent, where Lucien Côté ran the family general store in the 1920’s. As a seasoned businessman, he set his sights high and developed an entire wholesale network (footwear, clothing) in Lotbinière County and surrounding areas.
His son, Réal, joined with him around 1952 to develop new territories and took the reins of the company after his patriarch passed away. He was the initiator of the Chaussures Pop franchise network who then developed the group and strengthened distribution.
The three Côté brothers were now at the heart of the family business: Michel, André and Pierre. They consolidated the store network, created additional banners (Work Centre, Ecotone and Go Sport), acquired high-quality brands such as Chlorophylle, Kingtreads and Sportchief, all while developing distribution on an international level.
Côté-Reco’s mission is to ensure the distribution of quality
footwear and clothing, while enabling and promoting entrepreneurship
through a network of franchises and turnkey banners
To remain a leader in distribution, franchise and banner management to foster entrepreneurship and the growth of our employees.
For 3 générations now, the group has been relying on their family values that enable them to manage their teams with incredible flexibility.
Our network of franchises and banners, our financial solidity and our compliance of their respective policies.
