La Varenne Restaurants is a chain of food-retail concepts in Luxembourg. The company wants to provide a best-in-class food proposition at high-traffic retail locations. La Varenne is expanding its portfolio in collaboration with property investors.

CEO Josée Heij:

“Without Triacta we would not have been able to become an independent, financially healthy and growing company. We wanted to become independent from our previous owners, Autogrill, in a controlled fashion, and Triacta was indispensable in that process. The organisation is rock solid and Triacta still supports us in non-routine matters such as acquisitions and opening new sites. They have also proven to be a strong sounding board for management.”
