Autogrill's figures are better than expected in the first half of 2022. After a negative operating result of -88.8 million in the first half of 2021, the travel hub experts are back in the black, even exceeding very optimistic forecasts. As a result, the company is revising its assumptions for the full year 2022 upwards.
The Italian vacationer may think of Autogrill primarily in terms of rest stops. In 2021, however, only 39 percent of sales were attributable to freeway service stations, while 55 percent were generated at airports. The most important market for the Italian group here is the USA. Autogrill is considered one of the largest traffic caterers in the world. The company is represented in 30 countries on 4 continents, operates around 3,800 outlets with more than 31,000 employees at around 950 locations and is present in 142 airports. In Germany, Autogrill has over 29 outlets at the four airport locations Frankfurt, Düsseldorf, Stuttgart and Hamburg, as well as at various service areas and the designer outlet Neumünster.
