AmRest, an international fast-food and restaurant operator based in Wrocław, is predicting a 10 percent increase in sales for 2014. By the end of 2013, the firm’s investment volume will amount to zł.375 million.
If the current growth is maintained, AmRest is likely to outgrow McDonald’s on the Polish market in terms of the number of units.
The company owns several international brands in Poland including KFC, Burger King, Starbucks and Pizza Hut.
According to company spokesperson Wojciech Mroczyński, it is possible that the firm could acquire some popular local brands. Analysts have mentioned restaurant chain Sphinx as one of the probable targets.
Currently AmRest operates in 13 countries and employes 16,000 people in 700 restaurants. Its majority owner is investment fund WP Holdings VII.
