Solera Supermarket


Entrepreneur Pepa Bascon moved to Cologne Germany twenty years ago, instilling her Spanish roots to the city by bringing the best products from her native country which she sold in a small store in the center of Cologne. With huge success, Pepa has expanded into a much larger space which plays host to heavy Mediterranean modern design which suits well with the products distributed in the shelves.

Across the 500m space, shoppers are presented with food-enriching experiences, including a demonstration space where food can be live prepared in a 'test-kitchen-esque' space. There is also a gourmet food stand in the space which is used to showcase unique and unknown products.
