Around six million guests are catered for each year in the 38 German Block House Restaurants. Aside from the German Block House Restaurants, the Block Group also operates nine franchise companies, for example, in Switzerland and on Majorca as well as the Jim Block burger restaurants and the Blockbräu brewery inn in Hamburg. In addition to that, the Block House butcher’s in Hamburg, the Block Menü in Zarrentin and the Block Handels GmbH (Block Trading Company) also belong to the Block Group. The logistics behind this enormous range of products is a little complex. It’s not enough just to transport meat and other foodstuffs between the manufacturing sites and to the restaurants, but also all that is required for smooth restaurant operation, too – whether it be the menus, the cutlery, the salt shaker or the paper towels. And, not to be forgotten: crayons, drawing paper and small gifts for the children.
