Poland is regarded as an economic powerhouse in Eastern Europe, with a GDP growth averaging 4% per annum since the fall of communist rule over twenty years ago. The EU country’s economic stability in recent years has made it a hotspot for foreign direct investment in recent years. Whilst the 2015 election of the populist Law and Justice party caused concern among some economists, these fears have yet to materialize.
Sales value across the Polish foodservice profit sector rose at a strong CAGR of 4.0% between 2014 and 2016.

Between 2014 and 2016, revenue in Poland’s coffee and tea shop channel grew, reaching a valuation of approximately PLN 6.5 Billion in 2016. Market growth has been primarily driven by an expanding middle class, with rising numbers of consumers indulging in discretionary out-of-home occasions.
