Autogrill is the world leader in catering and retail services for travelers. Autogrill is present in 30 countries with approximately 55,000 collaborators and manages about 4,500 points of sale in over 1,000 locations.
It mainly operates through concession contracts in airports, railway stations, highways, city centers, malls, trade fairgrounds and cultural sites.
Thanks to its operations in North America, Italy and in other European countries, including France, Belgium, Switzerland and Germany, Autogrill is currently the world's leading organization operating under concession contracts.
The Group offers consumers a comprehensive range including both proprietary brands and concepts (like Ciao, Bistrot, Bubbles, Beaudevin, La Tapenade) and third party proposals. The latter include both local and international brands (like Starbucks Coffee, Burger King, Brioche Dorée). The Group manages a portfolio of over 250 brands, either directly or under license agreements.
In the 2005-2008 time span, the Group diversified its activities by penetrating the Travel Retail & Duty Free segment through a series of acquisitions (Aldeasa, Alpha and World Duty Free), which were integrated in the subsequent years.
