Some 40 years after the company was founded, in the early 1990s Tchibo made the leap from a national to a successful internationally operating company. Within a few years Tchibo grew – through determined expansion in Central and Eastern European – into one of Europe’s leading coffee providers. Tchibo has subsidiaries in Austria, Switzerland, Slovakia, Poland, Hungary, Czech Republic, Russia, Romania and Turkey, and exports coffee to over 40 countries around the world.
