Tesco has been active in Hungary since 1995. Our headquarters are located at Kinizsi street 1-3, Budaörs.We operate 207 stores in Hungary, which makes us the largest hypermarket chain nationwide. With a workforce of over 20,000 employees, we are among the country’s top employers. We employ over 1000 people with changed working capacity and work in partnership with more than 1,200 Hungarian businesses. Each week we serve an average of 3 million customers. We contribute 1% to the gross national product.
Though our core activity is food retail, we also sell a number of other products from home electronics through clothing and sports gear to cosmetics and home accessories. As part of the Financial Partner service we offer various credit and insurance products to customers.
When opening new stores, we do our best to meet the various customer expectations, taking care to ensure the diversity of our stores in terms of size and type. In response to surveys suggesting that customers increasingly want convenience shopping – small stores closer to their homes offering the low prices they are accustomed to at Tesco – we have introduced stores with a small floor space.
We use inventive solutions to try and meet customer needs better and make their lives easier. Relying on our global experience, we have introduced a self-checkout system and an online shopping system. Our self-checkout system is available in 101 stores across the country to help save time during shopping.
