VAPIANO wins the prestigious CEE Retail Awards 2017

“The CEE Retail Awards 2017 honours the commitment and the perseverance of all our Vapianisti to develop VAPIANO into a global successful and loved Company’’ says Jochen Halfmann, CEO Vapiano SE.

‘Chi va piano, va sano e va lontano’: ‘Those who approach life in a casual and relaxed way live more healthily and longer’, according to an Italian proverb. This love of life is reflected in all facets of the VAPIANO concept: the fresh pasta and pizza, the Vapianisti, the locations and the design. Although the shortlisted nominees were excellent and successful expanding retail industry members, the Jury recognized through this award the company’s successful positioning in over 30 countries around the globe, and honoured the stringent and continuous market expansion with 180 VAPIANOS worldwide.

“With 17 Vapianos in the Region and 3 more to come this year we are very happy and proud that the work of our local Franchise Partners and Vapianisti is recognized and awarded. It is their Love & Passion that created our success and brand awareness in the CEE Regions. This award is dedicated to the entire VAPIANO Family!” says Mario C. Bauer, Member of the Executive Board Vapiano SE responsible for Expansion & Partnerships.


The CEE Retail Awards ceremony is a key networking event, which brought together 450 top real estate professionals from the major retail market sectors in the CEE region and 14 key retailers were awarded on the night. ‘.
