Become A Brotzeit® Franchisee

The Essence Of The Brand

Brotzeit® is a modern German Bier Bar & Restaurant brand
that stands for an authentic German dining experience with
a modern, urban yet cosy setting.

At Brotzeit®, our diners can expect authentic German dishes
carefully crafted from only the finest ingredients, acclaimed
German beers served up to perfection, in an environment
that exudes what we Germans refer to as ‘Gemütlichkeit’. It’s
that warm, friendly and fuzzy vibe that you get when a place
feels just right.

The brand is confident and functional.
Brotzeit® outlets feature a mix of relaxed outdoor dining and
warm interiors. Think oak tables and leather benches
combined with straight lines and smooth surfaces.

Yet another interior feature that all outlets have in common is
a signature mural, playfully illustrating the history and
development of German beer culture.
