Expansion Successes in our Centers


Conquering the German shopping center market with ECE: In 2019, ECE’s internationally experienced leasing team succeeded in bringing another top-class Turkish concept to Germany with the men’s fashion brand “AC&Co.” from Boynergroup, Turkey’s largest retail chain. Initially launched on 100 m² of retail space in Skyline Plaza in Frankfurt, further openings are already being planned due to its great success, including Rhein-Center in Cologne and Thier-Galerie in Dortmund.

“As an internationally active company, Germany has always represented an interesting business location. Together with ECE, we were able to develop a shop concept for the German market suitable for our ‘AC&Co.’ brand within just one and a half years and to implement it successfully, initially in Skyline Plaza. We would like to build on top of this success and further expand our local business activities with the support of ECE.”

Another impressive example of a successful retail trade launch with ECE is the Belgian fashion label Paprika: In March 2018, the fashion label opened its doors in Rhein-Center in Cologne and since then has been offering fashion-conscious women from size 42 upwards the opportunity to buy new clothes at affordable prices. This was the first store in a German shopping center for this popular brand and also the beginning of its rapid expansion: Today, Paprika is present in ten German ECE centers.

“When we opened our first shop in an ECE center, in Rhein-Center in Cologne in 2018, we did not expect to be able to grow so quickly. However, our concept has been so well received in Germany that, with the support of ECE Experts, we were able to open nine more shops in record time. We would also like to keep success story going.”
