  • Show Kitchen

    The most important feature of Vapiano is its open-style show kitchen, where our fresh pasta dishes, pizzas, antipasti and salads are prepared live in front of the guests. But that’s not all: Besides cooking it is all about communication, giving information, laughing and of course, making our guests happy.

    Working at the front-cooking stations means delivering constantly optimal quality and attending each guest’s individual preferences.

  • Reception and check-out

    Handling both reception and check-out, you will be the first and last contact of our guests during their visit to the Vapiano. You are there to give them a friendly welcome and goodbye and assist in all questions and suggestions.

  • Service

    In the service, you make sure that your Vapiano always shows its best side.

  • Bar

    At the bar, you are sommelier, barista and barkeeper in one person. You know which wine matches best which Vapiano dish, how to make the city’s best cappuccino and in which glass to serve a cognac.

  • Scullery

    Each restaurant is bent on a perfectly organised scullery behind the scenes. Support the cooks in their daily work and become an important part of the team.

  • Manifattura and Prep Kitchen

    At Vapiano, we prepare almost everything fresh each day: sauces, pesto, pasta, pizza dough and dolci. In our manifattura and our preparation kitchen, we produce, weigh, pack, cut, pre-portion and cook day-by-day. All in accordance with our high freshness, hygiene and quality standards!


Our Vapiano Support Center in Bonn and our offices in Luxembourg, Berlin and Austria serve to support more than 8000 Vapianisti in our now 130 restaurants all over the world. This service factor is our focal point in sustaining the success of Vapiano. Employees of all departments work with great commitment towards the realization of our vision. Here, you can find out more about the different departments of the Vapiano Support Center:

  • Operations

    Our experienced Operations Managers advice our Vapianos in their daily restaurant business. Most importantly, this means visiting the Vapianos regularly and assisting the Vapianisti as experts in all questions from efficient operational practices to human capital and recruitment.

  • Franchise & Development

    Vapiano is a globally expanding company. In order to ensure the success of an ever growing number of Vapiano restaurants, our experts are constantly working on the best expansion strategies; they serve as franchise consultants to our franchise partners and are always searching for the most beautiful places where the next Vapiano could open. They also turn each opening into a fantastic event and help make new Vapianos a success.

  • Constructions

    The spacious and luminous, organic architecture of our big city locations, combined with carefully chosen materials and colours aim to create relaxed settings of Mediterranean flair, which impress by their love of detail and aesthetics. Following the design Matteo Thun, our team of architects and construction engineers are implementing his ideas to shape an ambiance that invites our guests to linger. Optimal restaurant functionality for all Vapianisti is another daily challenge to master.

  • Marketing

    With their passion for the Vapiano brand and their innovative ideas, they’re our company’s creative minds and one of our most important pillars of success. Finding different ways of drawing our guests’ attention to the freshness and quality of our products inspires them so much that their enthusiasm becomes even contagious.

  • Purchasing & Quality Management

    To allow for the fresh preparation of the delicious Vapiano dishes in the restaurants, we have to make sure that all ingredients and utensils are always available at the exact time when they are needed. This is possible not only due to intelligent systems but also thanks to our employees who care about the quality of our products.

  • Human Capital

    “The right people, at the right place, at the right time” sounds like every-day personnel work. But that’s just a small part of what our Human Capital team covers. Vapiano wants to attract the right people and retain them in the company. Thus employer branding, personnel marketing, training, recruitment and personnel development are at the focus of our team’s efforts.

  • Finance & Controlling & IT

    From forecasting, accounting and recording of all financial processes to creating analyses and reports: our teams of the Finance, Controlling and IT departments support the strategic implementation of business ideas and corporate guidelines.

  • Payroll

    Our payroll team is constantly ensuring smooth personnel administration and compensation.
