Mostoles, 7 March 2016.- VIPS, the original, flagship brand owned by Grupo Vips, the multi-brand and multi-format company which leads the food service and retail sector in Spain, is continuing with its expansion and now has 96 Cafeteria-Restaurants. Mostoles was the place chosen for this iconic establishment which is located at Avenida Olímpica, 25.
The new location is the fifth investment in Grupo Vips by the four business owner brothers with experience in the hotel and restaurant industry who already manage two other VIPS, in Aravaca and Majadahonda, and two GINOS, located in Boadilla and Majadahonda.
The new VIPS in Mostoles enabled the creation of 31 jobs and includes the brand's 100% renewed offer which is reflected in a new image -more modern, comfortable and warm- a menu featuring a culinary variety for all tastes and eating times as well as extended opening hours.
With an investment of approximately €600,000, the new VIPS occupies 446 m2 of surface area including 211 m2 in the dining room, 17.42 m2 in indoor areas, a 17.96 m2 children's play place and a 99.20 m2 terrace.
With this new location, there are now a total of 96 VIPS Cafeterias-Restaurants, 83 of which are internally owned and 13 operated under the franchise system, across 17 Spanish provinces.
VIPS, A Unique Brand
Open every day of the year with free Wi-Fi for its customers, attentive table service and extended opening hours, VIPS restaurants-cafeterias are designed for all types of eating times: a break from work, a business meal or just to relax alone or in the company of family or friends.
Thus, VIPS has different areas that adapt to all needs: a modern bar to have a quick bite, a dining room with comfortable and modern boxes as well as a series of high benches and armchairs. All of this is accompanied by an interior design where everything revolves around the chain's mythic red color which contrasts with the beiges, greys and light browns on the floor, chairs, tables, walls and tall panels which gives the entire dining room a touch of elegance and warmth.
As far as the culinary offer, which focuses on international cuisine with an American accent, it has also been created to adapt to all tastes. Standing out are its famous sandwiches such as the Vips Club, the delicious salads like the Caesar or Louisiana, its popular hamburgers and delightful desserts like its Brownie with vanilla ice cream and the well-known pancakes with whipped cream. All of these tasty options are offered in addition to a line of light and balanced products including dishes such as the California sandwich on twelve-grain bread with seeds filled with roasted vegetables and greens and healthy desserts such as seasonal fruit and freshly squeezed orange juice.
Plus, the restaurants-cafeterias have an extensive menu of the day from which customers may choose from among more than nine dishes starting at €10.95 and a child's menu starting at €7.95. They also have a gluten-free menu, which is certified by FACE (Spanish Federation of Coeliac Associations).
