Vapiano To Open In Bethesda Row

This Marks Vapiano's 1st Maryland location and 5th Corporate Owned Restaurant in US

November 20, 2009 // Franchising.com // McLean, VA - Vapiano signed a lease with Federal Realty to open a corporate-owned Vapiano restaurant in Bethesda Row. This will make the 5th corporately-owned Vapiano in the Washington, DC metro and Vapiano's 1st location in Maryland. Vapiano will open in a new Federal Realty building, adjacent to an Equinox fitness facility and will join Jaleo, Le Pain Quotidien, Mon Ami Gabi, Raku, and several other successful restaurants already in Bethesda Row. This 5,400 square foot Vapiano will be the first in Maryland and will seat 200 plus guests including a large patio and lounge area. Vapiano has retained Matteo Thun, an award winning designer from Hamburg Germany, to head up design on the Bethesda Row location.

"Bethesda Row is the crown jewel of Bethesda. We have been waiting for years to get the right location and we can't wait to open", said Bill Bessette, CEO, Vapiano.
