Mario C. Bauer is an entrepreneur and advisor to Vapiano. For almost a decade he was responsible at Vapiano as an executive for international growth & partnerships. He and his team have opened and continue to operate over 200 restaurants in 33 countries around the globe.
“All we do, we do with love to refresh your life” is the vision of Vapiano - a fresh casual, front cooking Pasta – Pizza – Bar lifestyle concept within a Mediterranean ambience.
While growing up in his family’s restaurant in Austria, Mario developed an entrepreneurial mindset from a young age by founding several startups such as Bagel Station (bagel & coffee shop concept) or Papernomad (sustainable ipad sleeves). His current adventure is Curtice Brothers, an organic boutique ketchup cooked in Tuscany, where he can live up to this credo, that in life only two things matter “Love & Food”.
Mario has a true international mindset, and is constantly travelling around the world. His harbor is a houseboat in Amsterdam, where he and his girlfriend enjoy feeding the ducks in the morning and hosting friends from around the world.
