VAPIANO celebrates successful listing on Frankfurt Stock Exchange

Bonn, 10th of July 2017 – on Tuesday 27 June, Vapiano celebrated its successful Initial Public Offering and became a listed company on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange. Vapiano’s listing is the next step in the company’s plan to support and drive its worldwide growth and innovation. Vapiano will invest further in its People App and its restaurant innovations from order terminals to table service.

Vapiano CEO Jochen Halfmann said: “The day we listed on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange was a historical day for us. We were successful in raising the funds we need to move forward with our expansion. By the end of 2020, our guests will be able to find us in even more cities and countries around the world. The funds will also flow into and drive our innovation plans.”

As is tradition at the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, Jochen Halfmann rang the bell once Vapiano’s shares began officially trading and then celebrated the company’s successful listing with colleagues and guests. Following the ringing of the bell, Vapianisti performed the Wok Dance across the trading floor, ringing in the first day of trading in true Vapiano style.

The successful public offering of Vapiano’s shares was a fantastic proof that Vapiano remains one of the favourite restaurant chains in the fast casual dining space. Today, Vapiano has 186 restaurants in 31 countries. And there is more to come. In 2017 alone, 8 new restaurants were already opened, including Bogota, Santiago de Chile and Vapiano’s sixth restaurant in Paris.
