OUR COMPANY

HOW WE BEGAN

Koulourades opened its first outlet in 2016 on Navarinou St in Piraeus.

The product was so innovative that the signs of success were there right from the start. Within four months, the newly established company had gained a following and it was not long before a second outlet opened, again in Piraeus, on Iroon Polytechniou St. The new trend created by Koulourades quickly made a number of investors interested in the creation of new outlets. The company’s headquarters opened on Plataion Street in Piraeus and a first franchise outlet was established. To ensure the quality of our products, we created our first training centre, fully committing ourselves to the training of our investors and their employees.

WHAT CAME NEXT

The company’s profitability and growth have made it the most profitable franchise option in Greece.

In 2017, the company opened one outlet per month. Working with the largest suppliers in Greece and Europe, we began to grow our network. The secret Koulourades recipe was now being produced in our outlets and an innovative new method of preparation had been introduced. In 2018, Koulourades opened 44 new outlets, a feat of near impossible network growth even by international standards. The company’s profitability and growth had made it the most profitable franchise option in Greece. There were more than 2,500 new applications pending from potential franchisees.

MOVING STEADILY TOWARDS GROWTH

The company was now playing a leading role in the daily eating habits of the Greek people.

In response to growing demand, a new larger training school was created to teach more than 50 candidate employees a day.

With its own funds and without a loan, the company was now playing a leading role in the daily eating habits of the Greek people.

Our philosophy of providing the best product at the lowest price had made us an innovative up-and-coming solution in the food service industry.

In 2019, we began to develop outside Athens in the largest regional cities, culminating in two new outlets in Thessaloniki and the creation of a new training centre to serve our outlets in Northern Greece and Bulgaria.

BECOMING AN INSTITUTION

Koulourades works with the world’s biggest suppliers of raw materials to ensure top quality products.

Every day, Koulourades outlets prepare more than 250,000 of the famous koulouri bread rings, serving over 120,000 people. In next to no time, Koulourades has managed to inject new life into the most traditional Greek street food, creating a buzz around the humble koulouri.

We have done things differently, making tradition fashionable and encouraging young people to change their eating habits so they buy the most nutritious product.

KOULOURADES GO GREEN

When we look to the future, we at Koulourades wish for a better tomorrow.

As companies worldwide increasingly adopt sustainable practices, Koulourades is showing its commitment to the environment by becoming greener, replacing our old packaging and consumables with new more ecological versions. Meanwhile, paper carrier bags have taken the place of plastic and we are using less paper in our packaging. Our straws and cups are also now made of paper.

When we look to the future, we at Koulourades wish for a better tomorrow. This is a responsibility that we all share and we can make it happen by keeping our planet healthy through sustainable development.
