SPAR is the world’s largest food store chain with over 12500 stores in 42 countries across 4 continents and meets the needs of over 13 million consumers every day. The retail group’s philosophy is to provide freshness, choice, value and service to its customers. The licence to operate SPAR in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia was granted in January 2016 to the Al Sadhan Group. Established in 1952, the Group has diverse business interests with experience in retail and is now seeking to convert its existing supermarkets and expand further. Utilising experience in FMCG brand distribution, Al Sadhan plans to develop the SPAR Brand further in the territory of Riyadh.
