World of Volvo chooses Götaplatsgruppen as its restaurateur
World of Volvo opens in 2024 – a joint venture by Volvo Cars and Volvo Group, with the ambition of becoming a new, exciting meeting place in central Gothenburg. A vibrant destination that will offer exhibitions, experiences, events, conferences and restaurants.
It has now been confirmed that Götaplatsgruppen will run the restaurants and manage all food and beverages at World of Volvo. Götaplatsgruppen is a well-known player. The group successfully runs a number of restaurants in Gothenburg including Tavolo, Toso, Mr.P and SK Mat & Människor and the summer season’s Bar Himmel.
World of Volvo is currently under construction. The site is a little south of Liseberg and thanks to its location and architecture, World of Volvo will be a new landmark in central Gothenburg, and also part of the city’s new entertainment strip. Visitors will be able to learn about topical subjects through exhibitions and events, experience design and culture, get involved in important issues and visit the building’s restaurants.
“We’re proud and overjoyed that World of Volvo has chosen us as their restaurateur. After many years’ collaboration around the world, we know each other well. We’re raring to get to grips with the challenge, and we promise Gothenburgers dining experiences way beyond the ordinary, and which complement our restaurant offering in Gothenburg,” says Stefan Karlsson, one of Götaplatsgruppen’s founding members.
“Götaplatsgruppen is our perfect partner. With its extensive experience in the industry, successful restaurant concepts and Stefan Karlsson, their award-winning chef, we truly feel the World of Volvo is beginning to take shape as an inspiring meeting place and destination with a dining experience that’s in a class of its own,” says Magnus Wrahme, CEO at World of Volvo.
World of Volvo, a joint venture between Volvo Cars and the Volvo Group, is a place of inspiration and entertainment in the centre of Gothenburg. It is an interactive meeting place that offers temporary and permanent exhibitions, inspiring events, interesting lectures and great music performances. Meeting rooms, event hall and a brasserie, restaurant and shop.
