Kaufland wants to focus on its core business – and therefore sells its sausage stalls. The buyer operates several well-known snack brands.
If you get hungry before or after shopping, you will usually find it in the parking lot at Kaufland. Because there is often a snack bar here that offers curry sausages, French fries or other hearty dishes.
Now the large-scale discounter wants to part with most of its sausage places – and sell the stalls. This is what the “Heilbronn Voice” reports.
On April 1, 2021, a subsidiary of the “United Curry Group” will take over the takeaways from Kaufland with more than 350 employees in order to continue operating them under their brands, the report says. The group, which also acts as a franchise provider, includes brands such as Grillgut, Wurstteufel, Bratwerk or Grillbar.
Buyer will increase significantly
Accordingly, the “Curry Nosh GmbH” from Leverkusen, which was only founded on February 22nd and entered in the commercial register, except for two locations, takes over all Kaufland stalls. In the job advertisements of “Gastro Concept Management”, which belongs to the “United Curry Group”, it says: “We will expand on April 1st, 2021. We are gaining 80 new locations and 400 employees.”
Accordingly, the group would double. Because it currently operates just 80 locations with 150 employees.
A Kaufland spokeswoman confirmed to the newspaper that the company wanted to focus on the core business and outsource the takeaway business. “Demand has decreased at many locations in recent years,” the spokeswoman said, according to the report.
