"No other concept in the last five years has had such an impact on the restaurant and food industry in Europe, than Vapiano."
Food Service Europe & Middle East Judging Panel

If You Love the European Lifestyle, You Will Love Vapiano

Somewhere between the nicest of fast casual and hippest of casual dining restaurants is Vapiano.

Defining the future of fresh casual - a new and refreshing niche in the restaurant industry - Vapiano is an innovative European concept serving made-to-order fire roasted pizzas, fresh, house-made pasta and hand tossed gourmet salads.

An established concept with more than 30 worldwide locations and another 100 in development in the United States, Europe and the Middle East, Vapiano puts a new spin on the dining experience with its urban upscale Italian decor and its modern customer service.


Vapiano is a fast casual restaurant with a twist - customers use a "chip card" to personally order their food or drinks from the bar or from the individual fresh pizza, pasta or salad stations. With this new innovative technology, Vapiano is going to change the way restaurants do business!

"A slick and surprisingly likable hybrid of Italian concept and German engineering, these spiffy pizza and pasta bars manage to produce, as the slogan goes, fresh fast food. This culinary coupe has been driving in the fast lane in Germany for five years -- and that's a coup."
Eve Zibart Washington Post

What Vapiano Franchisees are saying:

"I am Vapiano's first US franchisee. Since Vapiano was founded, I have watched it successfully dominate every European market it entered and win the industry's top awards. As soon as they began franchising in the US, I jumped at the opportunity and can't wait to open my units in Florida.

My friends in Europe own franchises and I've never seen them happier. I like the concept so much, I doubled the size of my territory within 60 days of first signing up. Vapiano is the future of the restaurant industry!"
Konrad Woest, Former Pizza Hut Franchisee in Germany
Vapiano's first USA franchisee

"We were the first Vapiano franchisees (Munich) in the system. At no point in time have I had regrets being part of this future orientated concept and hope that the positive spirit of this brilliant idea prevails."
Dominik Boxler, Franchisee Vapiano Munich

"I was totally inspired by Vapiano. My Vapiano restaurant was immediately a success and I was able to end the first year on a positive note. Full restaurants nearly every day and satisfied customers are our reward. I (am) looking forward to the opening of our next restaurant in Düsseldorf."
Eldad Schoenfeld, Franchisee Vapiano Düsseldorf
