Vapiano opens in Gothenburg 10th of October.
We at Vapiano puts "People First" and we mean especially all Vapianisti (employees). We are committed and have great confidence in our young people, who are hired based on matching values - personality, attitude and willingness are the keys. Knowledge and experience is not required but it is something that is offered during the development of Vapiano. We educate and train young people to equip them for the world of work at Vapiano well as for the future career.
Now it is close for our young people to meet guests on their own and to really test their skills. Since April we have trained 45 employees in Stockholm and Malmö to be ready to open Vapiano Kungsport in Gothenburg. Vapiano has employed about 60 people who are now going to test the wings and for many, the first job after high school. 15 of our existing Vapianisti in Stockholm and Malmö accompany us to Gothenburg, with 10 of them taking a step forward in their career. Julia Börjedal is a pasta chef and one of the employees who really has taken a leap in her career and will work as a teacher and in charge of the kitchen. This is what Julia says about what it's like working at Vapiano:
"Because it's fun to have fun! Vapiano is a fun, safe and stimulating workplace. We are a team that cares about each other. The move to Stockholm to learn about the work at Vapiano has been rewarding, challenging and very important to us as employees. The energy of facing our new restaurant has been long, the preparation further, and now we are more ready than ever!"
Kristofer Edström, a 25-year Gothenburger who was flown from the town since graduation and now found the perfect time to move back home, will be the restaurant manager at Vapiano Kungsport. Kristofer has worked on three Vapiano, two restaurants in Stockholm and one in Oslo. He is excited about the opening:
"It's incredibly exciting to meet the huge demand from guests who have been on visits to other restaurants, and finally get to open Vapiano in Gothenburg."
Kristofer is a lovely person who we are proud to represent and lead Vapiano Kungsport. Good luck wishes to Kristofer and team Vapianisti of Kungsport from the rest of the Vapiano family and remember "because it's fun to have fun."Back to overview to top
