casualfood and Gebr. Heinemann are taking their long-standing partnership to a new level and establishing the 50/50 joint venture “Smartseller”. This involves pooling the two companies’ core competencies to create an attractive offering for small and medium-sized airports. The joint venture offers them an innovative combination of food service and retail – unique food-to-go islands with duty-free and travel value deals. While casualfood brings its travel catering expertise to the table, Gebr. Heinemann is contributing its knowledge of duty-free retail and distribution. This will enable even airports with limited space to become more attractive places for visitors to spend time in the future. The airports will also benefit from holistic, centralised food-service and retail management.

Travel food specialist casualfood has developed an innovative solution that allows food to be grilled in retail spaces that could not previously be used for conventional food services.
The solution comprises an indirect grill and special recirculating air technology, and has been implemented at casualfood’s new Hermann’s restaurant at Frankfurt Airport.
Turning what was formerly a retail store into a food service outlet was once inconceivable at airports due to the lack of air extraction systems. But casualfood has come up with a solution: together with their partner they have developed an innovative solution comprising an indirect grill and special recirculating air technology for their new Hermann’s restaurant at Frankfurt Airport. This has been put to use and has passed all the tests and met all of Frankfurt Airport’s stringent specifications. This means up to 250 sausages can now be grilled every hour within a retail space – and without any exhaust air or unpleasant odours. Read more
