can you think of the big brands that instantly come to mind when you think about the country you live in? like coffee shops, fashion stores, gas companies etc. also, any companies that you know are big in other countries? and of course, can you please tell me what you think of :)

this is for a college project by the way and i thought here would be a good place to ask since we're from all over the place! :) thank you for any help in advance! :)

In Germany what comes to mind are the car brands like Mercedes, BMW, VW (including Audi), Porsche...

Then things like Bayer, Henkel, Adidas, Siemens, Bosch, Allianz, Deutsche Bank, TUI, Bertelsmann, EON, Steiff (I love many of their teddies and other stuffed animals!), Deichmann (a chain for good but not too expensive shoes)

Müller, Karstadt/Quelle, Globus, Strauss, Mediamarkt, Saturn etc are big chains, I have no idea which countries they originate from

From other countries:
For clothes H&M is really popular here,
Starbucks is expensive but in some cities there are lots of those coffee shops,
Esprit and Mexx are kinda nice,
I don't want to think about gas stations it's too depressing Star and Jet are usually a bit cheaper than Shell, Esso or Aral, but 'free' gas stations that don't belong to any chain are even better
.........................
my tvs: Emil is doing a foreign exchange to Japan/USA. Roderich is hiking in Canada. Vinícius has traveled to South Africa. Greta is stranded in Puerto Rico. Nami Geneveva seems to have been lost in the mail. Bob Beeker is still in Mexico. Kunigunde is having fun in the US. Kaspian was lost in the mail for the second time.

mmh... I guess there´re just two really known brands of Austria

- Manner and
- Red Bull (and that´s definitly more popular than Manner ; )

a friend of mine found some dishes of "Gmunder Keramik" in Tokyo.. but.. that doesn´t means that they´re really popular out there.
