With its innovative “Fresh Casual Dining” concept, gastronomic lifestyle brand VAPIANO founded a new category in the system catering industry in 2002. It combines elements of “fast casual” and “casual dining”, thus giving guests a high degree of self-determination. Quality, freshness and transparency are the basis of the restaurant concept. VAPIANO uses almost exclusively fresh ingredients. Pasta, pizza dough, sauces, dressings as well as dolci are made from scratch in every single VAPIANO, sometimes even in the middle of the guest room in the glass manifattura. The dishes are prepared in the show kitchen, directly in front of the guest and “à la minute”. This concept and a cosmopolitan ambience are VAPIANO’s recipe for success. From Hamburg the idea quickly spread to the whole world. VAPIANO currently counts over 200 restaurants in 33 countries on five continents. For more information, visit www.vapiano.com.
