Zara has become one of the best-known and most successful fashion brands in the world. However, US consumers tend to know little about not only the parent company driving its success, but also its sister brands around the world.
Since Zara’s billionaire founder Amancio Ortega opened the first Zara store in northern Spain in 1975, it has grown to become an enormous, 2,000-store chain, with a presence in 96 countries around the world.
In that time, Ortega has also grown his business by acquiring and launching other fashion brands, which now fall under the umbrella of Inditex. Inditex is considered the largest fashion retailer on the planet, turning out more than $30 billion in sales in 2017.
While many of these other Inditex brands do not currently have a presence in the United States, they are found in hundreds of countries around the world and make up a mammoth combined store count of 7,422 locations.
