The latest results of one of our studies show a clear correlation between newly opened innovative cafes and rental price developments in Switzerland. A very interesting article published in the Handelszeitung describes these market findings very well and shows additionally specific places in Switzerland where an investment could be interesting.

For the study, our data experts analysed 540.000 offers during a 15 year period (2004 until February 2019) and a set of randomly selected innovative cafes across Switzerland. They found that rent prices of properties close to newly opened innovative cafes increased on average by 6.1% during a three year period. This is 2.4% faster than the average increase in the corresponding city. A reference test, which tested for the same effect when considering McDonalds restaurants, did not show any significance.
