OUR AREAS OF EXPERTISE

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

TRAVEL CATERING

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.

MOTORWAYS

Areas operates its motorway business across Germany with 35 motorway sites including 28 gas stations with a total of 900 employees.

In November 2012, Areas integrated with the motorway brand AXXE which now operates 20 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.

All motorway service stations operated by Areas offer a wide range of catering. The selection ranges from classic free-flow concepts with regional specialties, quick service systems such as Burger King or North Sea and coffee bars such as Segafredo, Lavazza or Coffee Fellows.
