Craft baker Kamps opens two new locations in Riyadh.
On the track to success with Groupe Le Duff: two percent growth on existing space in 2015

Schwalmtal / Riyadh, 07. April 2016
Kamps GmbH, with French Groupe Le Duff taking a majority stake in 2015, is on the track to growth and is expanding its “Backstube” concept not just in Germany. After a first international launch in London in 2013, the craft baker from Germany’s Lower Rhine area is now working together with a dedicated franchisee in Saudi Arabia – a subsidiary of the Fawaz Alhokair group. A newly opened 450 m2 location in the “Meem Plaza” of Saudi Arabia’s capital Riyadh has already shown record daily turnover of up to €12,000. A second, 300 m2 location will be opened in April at the “Al Nakheel Mall”. These “two new” locations are already mixing with the top performers in Kamps’ portfolio of 470 locations, according to an internal study. It seems as if the Middle East just couldn’t wait for German bread. “Our expectations have been greatly exceeded”, says Kamps CEO Jaap Schalken.

Le Duff Group acquires Kamps to pursue further growth in Germany and internationally

Frankfurt / Schwalmtal / Rennes, 01. April 2015

The international Le Duff Group, headquartered in France, acquires the majority of the shares in Kamps GmbH from German Equity Partners III (GEP III), a fund managed by ECM Equity Capital Management (ECM), in order to strengthen its presence in the German quick service gastronomy and bakery market. As part of the envisaged transaction, the Kamps management team, headed by CEO Jaap Schalken, will reinvest into the company and continue to lead Kamps on its growth path as well as support the expansion of Le Duff Group in the German market. The transaction is still subject to approval from the relevant antitrust authorities.
