Croatia’s oldest and largest bakery chain has opened its second franchise outlet downunder in Australia.
Mlinar, which has over 200 bakeries in Croatia, around Europe, and in the Middle East, opened its second store in the Australian state of New South Wales.
After opening in Sydney at the Wetherill Park shopping centre last year, Mlinar has opened in the Sydney suburb of Liverpool.
Mlinar Bakery & Espresso is located in Fresh Food, Level 1 of Westfield mall in Liverpool.
The bakeries are branded and set out exactly the same as they are in Croatia but are run by franchise partners.
Mlinar has big expansion plans. Recently they opened in Munich, Germany and at the time said that they plan to open a further 150 bakeries in Germany in the next 5 years.
Mlinar manages over 200 bakeries from their base in Zagreb and has rapidly expanded franchises internationally over the last two years, with bakeries opening in Switzerland, Germany, Slovenia, Ireland, Slovakia, Sweden, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Saudi Arabia.
