SPAR Magyarország Kereskedelmi Kft. Was established in 1990. The group's first SPAR store was opened in Tata in 1991. The store transformations and store network purchases of the first years of the activity were followed by a series of new store openings, including greenfield investments. A significant step in the network expansion was the transformation of the fourteen Billa stores taken over at the end of 2002 into SPAR, as well as the 2003 acquisition of twenty-two Kaiser's supermarkets. The largest acquisition in the history of SPAR was completed in 2008, when it took over the entire Plus network operating in Hungary.
The company has been operating its own meat processing plant in Bicske since 2004, as well as a convenicence plant in Üllő for the production of fresh sandwiches and salads. In 2012, the company group started building a franchise system in Hungary. In parallel with the network expansion, the renovation and modernization of the company's older units is also ongoing. SPAR Magyarország Kereskedelmi Kft., With almost 13,000 employees, is the fifth largest employer in the country. Currently, more than 500 SPAR units operate in several department stores nationwide (INTERSPAR hypermarket, SPAR supermarket, City SPAR supermarket, SPAR partner, SPAR market, OMV-SPAR express, Lukoil-DESPAR).
At the end of 2019, SPAR Hungary had a total of 382 self-operated stores (34 INTERSPAR hypermarkets, 328 SPAR supermarkets, 20 City SPAR supermarkets), and 190 stores operated under its franchise program (24 SPAR partners, 53 SPAR markets, 85 OMV-SPAR express, 28 Lukoil-DESPAR), which represents a total of 572 stores with the SPAR logo. with nearly 13,000 employees, it is the fifth largest employer in the country.

The administrative center of SPAR Hungary, among several other buildings, is located at the Bicske exit of the M1 motorway (kilometer 39).
The central office building was first expanded at the end of 2002, when the departments previously operating in Budaörs moved to Bicske. In 2005, as a result of the continuous expansion of the network, it became necessary to expand the central building; a futuristic meeting bridge and a 3-storey parking garage have been established.

The first City SPAR stores opened in Budapest in 2006, after the transformation of former SPAR supermarkets; and the third store was also opened in April 2008 on Erzséber körút, one of the busiest points in Budapest. City SPAR already on its behalf suggests a vibrant urban shopping opportunity; and our customers can find a cleaner, clearer, more convenient sales area, modern equipment and a new range of products in the redesigned stores.
Focus on quality!
City SPAR stores represent the high standard and excellent quality characteristic of the other units of the SPAR Group; and the usual selection, which also includes SPAR branded products, was supplemented with ready-to-eat foods (ready-made sandwiches, pizzas, salads, locally baked crispy baked goods, grilled delicious snacks, cold kitchen preparations). Our customers are greeted by qualified, helpful staff, ensuring fast, daily shopping.
The long opening hours adapt to busy locations that are easily accessible by public transport until late at night.
OMV SPAR express
- the first SPAR express stores were opened at OMV filling stations in Hungary;
- SPAR and OMV aim to make SPAR quality and range available at filling stations as well;
- in the coming years, SPAR express stores will open at additional OMV filling stations.
The first step has been taken to make supermarket-specific goods available at filling stations, at supermarket-specific prices. The first SPAR express store was opened at the OMV filling station on Fehérvári út in Budapest, which is the first supermarket in Hungary to be located at a filling station. SPAR and OMV plan to open SPAR express stores at additional OMV filling stations in the coming years.
With the opening of the new retail unit at the filling station, in addition to refueling, motorists can even arrange their daily shopping quickly and easily. The SPAR express store awaits its customers with a wide selection and a wide range of fresh products. The menu also includes packaged fresh vegetables and fruits, a variety of dairy products, sliced and vacuum-packed delicacies, and freshly baked crispy baked goods.
The price level is lower than customers could get used to at filling stations. Our latest unit, opened at the charging station, is the first SPAR store to be open 24 hours a day, every day of the year, providing easy access and convenient parking. The SPAR express offers fast shopping, up to 4-5 minutes, for both motorists and local residents. SPAR private label products are available in the store at SPAR prices.
Under the new concept, in addition to supermarkets at some filling stations, OMV will continue to offer its high-quality coffee, as well as a wide selection of sandwiches and pastries. The cooperation between SPAR and OMV in this form does not extend to Austria, where only VIVA stores remain at the filling stations.
