“The first reaction from customers in Munich has been excellent. I can not say that is surprising as we have planned this for a long time, researching local habits and expectations. Burek is the most sold item so far in Germany,” Mlinar executive Marin Picukarić told Index, adding that Croatia’s entry into the EU has simplified things for the business abroad.

“Burek’s from Mlinar can be purchased in Australia, Kuwait, Dubai, Sweden and in a number of other European countries,” said Picukarić, who also announced that Mlinar are planning to open franchises in Slovakia and Spain.
