Areas is present in travel locations (airports, stations, motorways), exhibition and leisure parks.


Traveling is not only about getting from A to B. It is about an overall experience whose quality depends on a multitude of factors. Catering is one of them. Because it occupies a special place in our lives which is both intimate and cultural, it has a symbolic power, both at the time and in our memory. There is nothing quite like taking time out for a delicious meal to relax for a few minutes to refocus and restore concentration. A shared moment around the table can bring new discoveries or evoke the pleasure of family time.

Travelers around the world have different needs and expectations. Areas draws on in-depth knowledge of their needs and the broadest portfolio of catering concepts on the market to offer the ideal ingredient to enhance the flavor of their journeys.


Areas operates its motorway business with 31 motorway sites including 26 gas stations with a total of 900 employees.

In November 2012, Areas integrated with the motorway brand AXXE which now operates 21 motorway sites. Besides AXXE motorway sites Areas operates several motorway sites with Serways – a motorway brand by Tank & Rast, our closest partner in the German motorway business.

Our motorway sites offer a wide range of catering: classic free-flow concepts with German food, fast food outlets, e.g. NORDSEE or Burger King, and coffee bars, e.g. Segafredo or Lavazza. In addition to motorway sites and gas stations, we are responsible for six motorway hotels which also have conference rooms available.
