2theloo heads to French train stations

2theloo heads to French train stations

Dutch toilet chain 2theloo has entered a collaboration with the French railways, following the acquisition of its French competitor PointWC. The company will now open at least 44 new stores in French train stations.

Acquisition PointWC

2theloo already wants to open 28 new stores in France next year and its collaboration with the French railways is part of the Dutch company's strategy to have 2,000 stores worldwide by 2017.

 

The Dutch chain has recently acquired PointWC, which offers similar services in Paris and that particular acquisition has partially prompted the SNCF to enter an alliance with 2theloo.

 

The Dutch toilet company was founded in 2011 and currently has more than 200 'stores' in 14 countries. These are usually found in gas stations, shopping centers, and subway and train stations. On a yearly basis, the chain's stores welcome more than 40 million customers.
