Hendi, supplier of non-food catering equipment, buffet products, kitchenware and tableware for the hospitality and catering industry, is opening its first store in Romania. Located in Otopeni, on 242 Calea Bucurestilor, the store stretches on an area of 310sqm, with 2,500 products on display, available for sale.
By opening this store in Bucharest, the company counts on expanding its business in our country. „We continue our growth pace this year as well, by 50% more in the first three months of 2019 as against the previous year,” said Alina Arghire, General Manager Hendi Romania. She considers that the wide range of products, the fast delivery period, the customized stocks depending on the Romania clients’ preferences, solid partnerships with the top producers, the re-launch of its own online store have been the key factors of the record growth reported last year.
Established in the Netherlands in 1934, Hendi Group is running businesses of over EUR 150 million in seven countries: the Netherlands, Poland, Austria, Greece, UK, Hong Kong and Romania. They have their own salespeople in key European countries, such as Germany, France and Italy.
Hendi is selling over 4000 products that have been specifically designed for the professional catering market, from professional coffee machines, deep fryers, buffet equipment, electrical and gas appliances, small kitchen appliances, grills, to kitchen- and tableware, porcelain and cutlery.
According to the Fendi GM Romania, the HORECA market in Romania has been slightly increased year by year, by roughly 5 per cent. „We estimate the total market counts for EUR 250 million, including the second-hand equipment. We want to think outside the box as against the classic sales, ad we plan to sell on multiple channels, with a particular focus on customers. We open our first store for our customers,” said Alina Arhire.
