Popeye has the newest international fast-food chain to enter Romania. Popeye so far only opened in mall-type shopping centres, in Bucharest, in Băneasa Shopping Center and in AFI Cotroceni. From 2022, Popeye will also have a fast-food restaurant in Pipera, the richest suburb in Romania.

This type of investment in retail parks offers more flexibility, a short development term and a lower initial investment compared to malls, according to our study AT A GLANCE – RETAIL MARKET IN ROMANIA, H1 2022 (fortim.ro)

The rental market for new stores is dynamic, especially for the retail park segment. The recent developments will help to improve the offer in proximity areas, located in metropolitan areas.
