Bonn, 29th of September 2017 – VAPIANO has been recognised as one of the Top 25 Fastest Growing Global Restaurant Chains. The list, published by Restaurant Business – America’s leading foodservice media site,  as compiled with data from Technomic’s original Top 150 Global Chain Restaurant Report.

The original report analysed global chain restaurants that currently operate in three or more countries or autonomous territories. The corporate headquarters for these chains could be based anywhere in the world. Restaurant Business, in partnership with Technomic then selected the top 25 chains according to their global unit increases. 

Focussing on international expansion since several years, VAPIANO ranked in the top 25 due to its global unit change of 8.4%. VAPIANO is also taking advantage of the fact that fast-casual chains are currently seeing standout unit growth with restaurants operating in 32 countries worldwide and many more planned for the future.

Jochen Halfmann, CEO of VAPIANO SE, is pleased with the news: "Given the highly competitive nature of this market, we are delighted that VAPIANO has been named as one of the 25 fastest growing international restaurant chains. After the growth of the past few years, this is a pleasant and important confirmation of our work and encourages us to continue the expansion of our business."
