Unimarkt branches transitioning into franchises

The UNI Group: Achieving Sustainable Growth and Strategic Expansion Despite Challenges

Despite facing challenges during the financial year 2023/24, The UNI Group was able to achieve total sales of around 474 million euros, showing a promising increase from the previous year. Unimarkt branches are set to be converted into franchises by 2024/25, with 65 out of 124 locations already being managed by franchise partners.

The concept of autonomous UNIBoxes did not prove to be successful, resulting in their closure due to lack of profitability. However, the know-how gained from this venture will be utilized in Nah&Frisch hybrid markets within the group. With a total of 23 Nah&Frisch hybrid locations at the end of the financial year, an expansion plan for 16 more locations is in place for the upcoming year. Unimarkt now also operates two hybrid locations and sees this concept as the future of its operations amidst challenges in finding employees.

The group consists of UNIWholesale, UNILogistik, Unimarkt Handels GmbH, and 50% ownership of the convenience supplier unik, which achieved sales of 87 million euros in the previous financial year. With around 3,100 employees, The UNI Group remains focused on sustainable growth and strategic expansion.
