Vapiano franchise system celebrates five years of business
The Vapiano restaurant franchise system can look back at five years of business: its network has been continuously expanding since the foundation of the first restaurant in the German city of Hamburg. The Vapiano concept: serving modern Mediterranean food whereby the dishes are prepared in front of the customers and the restaurants designed like a lounge. By deliberately limiting its range of food to pasta, pizza and salads, the restaurants not only reduce their costs as far as MIS and storage are concerned but people from other business sectors are able to join the network and learn the concept quickly.
Today, this franchise company has 18 locations in Germany and nine restaurants in nine other countries including Belgium, Austria, Sweden, Hungary, Switzerland and the USA. Two new restaurants are expected to open their doors to the public before the end of this year: namely in Kiel and in Mannheim. According to information published on Vapiano’s website, further franchise businesses will be starting up in Dubai, Krefeld, London, Riyadh and Washington DC. Vapiano has been a member of the German Association of Restaurants since November 2007. It was awarded the Hamburger Food Service Prize in 2006 and is a member of the German Franchise Association, the DFV.
