Press Release: Further growth for casualfood in 2017

  • Sales up almost 20 per cent year on year
  • More than 700 employees from 71 nations
  • First stationary casualfood outlets outside of Germany

casualfood continued to grow in 2017 and increased its profit again with net sales of €51.5 million. More than 700 employees from 71 nations now work at the company. Its successful concepts are gaining ground as well: no fewer than five casualfood stores opened last year. casualfood now operates a total of 59 retail units under the names of its twelve different catering and store concepts.

“We are delighted that we were able to forge ahead with our concepts again in 2017 and post sales growth of almost 20 per cent. Additional new outlets are set to open in 2018: things remain exciting,” said Stefan Weber and Michael Weigel, Managing Partners of casualfood GmbH.

New concepts in 2017

GOODMAN & FILIPPO opened at Cologne Bonn Airport midway through the year. Following a successful test phase using two bikes, the well-received Italo-American concept was also rolled out at Slovenia’s Ljubljana Airport in December, along with a MONDO Bianco bar. They are casualfood’s first two stationary outlets outside of Germany. The company also expanded its presence at Frankfurt Airport by adding a Hermann’s Restaurant and a QUICKER’s Mobil stand. The airport’s MONDO was given a major facelift as well, giving it a fresh, new look. In addition, a new QUICKER’s opened at Essen Central Railway Station.

More than 700 employees from 71 nations

Diversity plays a major role at casualfood, which has more than 700 employees from 71 nations. At Frankfurt Airport alone, the firm’s workforce brings 63 nationalities together and includes staff from countries like Nepal, Panama, Sri Lanka, Fiji and Tajikistan. As one of the world’s most important aviation hubs and a location with international flair, it is the ideal place for people from around the world to work side by side.

Award-winning: GOODMAN & FILIPPO

GOODMAN & FILIPPO is the latest brand to join the casualfood family. It brings all of the travel food company’s experience together in a best-practice concept. The Italo- American deli was named Europe’s best “New Food & Beverage Concept of the Year” at the FAB Awards in June 2017 and recently received the DUS Excellence Award at Düsseldorf Airport. The next GOODMAN & FILIPPO will open at Frankfurt Airport in February 2018.
