Why Vapiano?

Vapiano is looking for great partners to join its worldwide expansion.  Since its initial opening in Hamburg in 2002, Vapiano has grown to over 180 locations in Europe, the Americas, Asia, Australia and Africa, offering fresh casual cuisine, Mediterranean flair, a climate of openness and the enjoyment of the simple pleasures of life.

Are you up to joining our unique Vapiano family?  Let us tell you a bit about ourselves, our brand, and the search for our kind of franchise partners. 

The menu offering of Vapiano revolves around the simple yet amazingly delicious classics of Italian cuisine such as pasta, pizza, salads and dolci that enjoy tremendous popularity all around the world. The entire atmosphere of the restaurant conveys an air of freshness and openness of body and mind: the daily production of fresh pasta takes center stage in the transparent glass manifattura; a live olive tree, a spectacular green wall and an assortment of fresh herbs immerse the room in an air of nature; large oak tables and a cozy lounge area encourage an individual design of every visit entice a culture of communication and sharing; and, perhaps most importantly, a team of outgoing and helpful Vapianisti prepare the meals in direct interaction with the guests, making them feel welcome and comfortable, just like when cooking with friends.

Can you envision this as being YOUR place? Do you see yourself as the host in your Vapianos, creating this fantastic atmosphere, being on center stage in the middle of it and welcoming your guests as you would welcome your friends? Then it is you we are looking for, and together we can make it happen.
