HORECA is a term that was coined in Europe to refer to a wider category of services related to the food industry. The word, which is actually an abbreviation, is comprised of the words “hotel, restaurant, cafe”, the types of businesses which generally offer food services to their customers. 

Which are the main HORECA activities developed by  a Czech company?  

Investors who are interested in opening a company in Czech Republic in the HORECA sector should know that there are several business prospects that can be carried out in this industry. As a general rule, the HORECA sector is comprised of the following main types of business activities:
  • accommodation activities, in which companies are specialized in offering accommodation services through hotels, motels and other similar premises;
  • restaurant businesses, specialized in offering food and drinks products in premises that have a certain identity (fast-food, traditional  food restaurants, sea-food restaurants and others);
  • cafes, where the clients can receive various types of cafes, teas and desserts;
  • catering – a sector which is specialized in providing food products for specific events, such as weddings, corporate events, graduations and others. 
Our team of specialists in company formation in Czech Republic can provide in-depth assitance on the regulations addressed to the above types of businesses, including on the ones related to the safety and hygiene requirements imposed in these situations.
