Carrefour is to open 400 drive-throughs across its domestic market by the end of 2013.

At present the grocery giant operates 177 drive- through outlets: 102 are linked to its Carrefour Market supermarkets, 68 are attached to Carrefour Hypermarkets and seven are standalone drive- throughs. The majority of the additional openings are likely to be linked to an existing store.

Carrefour’s drive-through network should reach 214 units by the end of the year.
