Abstract [en]

Inspired by the debate on the effects of large scale urban planning on the localization of small- and medium-sized businesses, this thesis focuses on the impact of modernist urban planning on the localization of restaurant outlets in Stockholm during the twentieth and early twenty-first centuries. The thesis is related to several literatures, including economic geography, urban history and to some extent the twentieth century history of the restaurant business in Sweden as well as urban food consumption. It is shown that the restaurant industry has mainly been located in urban environments characterized by an urban form, deriving from planning ideals that occurred before the advent of modernist urban planning. Furthermore, it is argued that modernist urban planning ideals has affected the restaurant industry in the younger parts of Stockholm in two directions. It helped to create conditions for cluster formation of restaurant companies around planned centers, and it contributed to the lack of cohesive urban street landscapes, for both walking consumers and consumers traveling by car. In the long run this has affected the supply of restaurant companies in these urban environments. It is also argued that both the number of restaurants and the degree of differentiation in the older (central) parts of Stockholm, have been adversely affected by interventions in the urban environment associated with modernist planning.
