Spar was founded in 1932 in Zegwaart, a dutch town. Spar’s original name was DE SPAR which in English roughly translates to “through united co-operation everyone regularly profits”. In 1953 an International Spar opened in Amsterdam, to issue protocol for opening new stores throughout Europe, including the UK. Since 1996, Spar has supported the European Athletic Association. The company has had a range of slogans, with its last slogan urging customers to”Feel the taste of Spar”.
Today, the Spar franchise has around 13 000 stores in 35 countries and continues to make plans to open stores in more countries across the world. In Germany, Spar stores are called Despar, and in Japan, Spar stores are known as Hotspar. On the Spar website, the franchise holds competitions and guides for planning the perfect meal and how to make them. For example, this year there is a section on Brazillian food, with recipes for traditional Brazilian foods, as well as information on how to get fit. The site also has news about new stores opening, as well as information on where their meat and veg comes from around the world.
