If you’ve ever wondered whether Brussels sprouts first came from Brussels, Belgium, the short answer is yes, they probably did, and it’s easy to find them in the city itself. Who wouldn’t want to eat Brussels sprouts in Brussels itself? Of course, that is just one of the many foods Belgium is known for, along with Belgian waffles, Belgian chocolates, and Brussels-brewed lambic beer. The city has built itself a richly-deserved reputation for hosting a variety of tastes, but this isn’t limited to the food market.
Brussels has an extremely eclectic population, with interests and industries in a variety of flavors. A budding entrepreneur will find their opportunities for success in Brussels as sweet as a Belgian chocolate truffle. With a large percentage of immigrants in the population and over 2,000 foreign companies with Brussels-based offices, this city influences its citizens as it does with its food, blending different flavors together into one delicious multicultural, multilingual dish. All this makes it an excellent business location for business owners looking to reach out to a diverse audience.
