Winners of VAPIANO Olympics 2016

During this spring Vapiano's most prestigious competition, Vapiano Olympics, took place for the sixth consecutive year. During two months, the eight restaurants compete in various assignments of different lengths and areas of focus, such as 24 hours creativity challenges, a week's sales competition and the month-long knowledge tests. It can be anything from hitting the right grams of carrots, to making the world's longest spaghetti or an educational film. Part of the competition is also for our Vapianisti to compose their own dishes and drinks which then have the opportunity to end up on the menu nationwide.

- Vapiano Olympics is a great tool to capture ideas and implement new procedures within the organization as learning and knowledge is a key part of the competition. The employees are also able to use their creativity in several different competitions which strengthens the team spirit and motivation. It is the team that gets the whole restaurant onboard that wins, says Gustaf Sjövall, Quality and Service Manager, member of the 2016 jury.

Winners of this year's team was Vapiano Mall of Scandinavia who after 60 days of battling finally could use the hashtag #youjustgotmosad.

- We set a target even before we opened the restaurant that we would win and we are extremely happy that we managed to do it! says Melinda and Emma, Assistant Restaurant Managers at Vapiano Mall of Scandinavia.

Great big congratulations to team Vapiano Mall of Scandinavia! We are already looking forward to next year.
