On 2 June, Das Futterhaus opens its 400th store in Ybbs an der Donau (Austria), bringing the number of stores in Austria to 45. The new store, on a retail area of 470 m², will be run by Martin Kowatsch, one of the corporate group's 135 partners.
During this year, Das Futterhaus envisages at least ten further new openings. Nine stores were opened in the first five months of the year. It is planned to extend the store network over the next few years to 550 outlets operated by existing and new franchise partners.
