BERLIN BASED RESTAURANT BUSINESS CONSULTANTS

Germany market entry

Germany is Europe’s largest economy. The restaurant industry is in our opinion underdeveloped, and mostly exists of mom-and-pop businesses. When comparing to countries with a more mature restaurant industry, such as the UK, the German market seems ready to catch up, making it a huge market opportunity for many restaurant brands. In addition, as Germans are conservative with regards to new trends, many brands will find that trends that are maturing in other markets are barely getting started in Germany. 

However, this market is not without it’s challenges.  For one, German’s are notoriously value conscious. Furthermore, consumer preferences are often idiosyncratic, and the local bureaucracy and red-tape can be difficult to navigate.

Based in Berlin, we are experts on the German market. We help your brand entering this market successfully, and can give expert answers to questions such as:

  • What is the market potential in Germany for your brand?

  • What is an appropriate pricing for this market?

  • Where should your restaurants be located?

  • Who are the major players in the market?

  • Do you need to make any adaptations to your brand?

  • What city is the best for launching your brand?

  • What are the brands most similar to yours?

Food delivery implementation

Delivery is one of the big trends currently shaping our industry. Whereas only fast food places used to do delivery, customers can now get virtually any food ordered online and delivered to their doorstep. Ordered meals tend to replace meals bought from a grocery store, so delivery is a large business opportunity for restaurants. However, it comes with a lot of challenges: Should you deliver yourself or outsource to a service provider? What online channels should you use? How do you present your food for delivery? How should this channel be integrated in your operations? Should all outlets do delivery?

 

Having worked on food delivery projects both on the restaurant side for a major German brand and on the service provider side, we are experts on this field.
