PESTLE Analysis of Germany

Overall, Germany is a stable innovation driven economy with a strong democratic system and a highly competitive economy. The aging population as well as the European sovereign debt crisis pose current and future risks to the development of the country. The very sophisticated business sector and the well-developed technical infrastructure sustain Germany’s innovativeness and competitiveness.

Regarding Cold Stone, we still value the benefits of operating in Germany higher than possible problematic factors. With the unique concept of Cold Stone, we believe it will be able to succeed even in light of the high local competition in Germany.

In addition, EU regulation will be majorly affecting Cold Stone when operating in Germany ensuring equal treatment in the food industry across Europe for Cold Stone and its competitors.

Political Factors

* Strong federal republic (Germany is divided into states and municipalities, but final authority lies with federal government)
* Robust democratic setup

* Elections considered fair and transparent (high rank in indicator “Voice and Accountability” in Worldbank Worldwide Governance Indicator)
