The Autogrill Group

Operations

Autogrill is the world’s leading provider of food & beverage  and retail services for travelers.

Present in 35 countries with a workforce of about 62,800, it manages more than 5,300 points of sale in over 1,200 locations. It operates mainly through contracts known as “concessions”: at airports, along motorways and in railway stations, with a selective presence on high streets and at shopping centers, trade fairs and cultural attractions.

The Group operates in two business segments: Food & Beverage and Travel Retail & Duty-Free.

Food & Beverage

Autogrill has Food & Beverage operations at major travel facilities (from airports to motorways and railway stations), where it serves a local and international clientele. Operations are carried out in Italy by Autogrill S.p.A., in other European countries by foreign subsidiaries, and in North America and Asia by Autogrill Group Inc. (and its subsidiaries). Offerings reflect the local setting, with the use of internally developed concepts and local brands under license, as well as a more global reach through the use of international standards (Starbucks, Burger King, Brioche Dorée, etc.) to complement proprietary brands such as Puro Gusto, Ciao, Bubbles, Beaudevin and others. Autogrill manages a portfolio of more than 350 brands, directly or under license.

Travel Retail  & Duty-Free

The Travel Retail & Duty-Free business takes place at airpor ts, which is the most dynamic channel as it is most closely bound to trends in the international economy and global trade. The largest market is Europe,  with a solid presence  in the United Kingdom and Spain. The Group is also active in the Middle East, the Americas and Asia. The mainly international clientele appreciates a uniform range of products across the different areas, sometimes supplemented by an assor tment of local goods. For this  reason,  as the various  businesses  acquired  over the years have been  integrated,  some Group- wide activities — such as marketing, purchasing, finance and other functions typical of a parent — have been centralized at the head Travel Retail & Duty-Free in the interests of better business coordination and efficiency.
