about us

We are the von Matts. We’re good at creating gourmet-style American food concepts, focusing on creative and relatable menus, offering a vibrant, casual dining atmosphere at each location.

Before opening each concept, we spent time traveling through The States, learning the ropes about American cuisine, testing recipes, and understanding the rich traditions. Now, with four individual concepts, we’ve managed to penetrate the market in Zurich and have started our journey to grow each brand within Switzerland.

Von Matt Hospitality Group (VMHG) is the parent company behind our concepts and is a privately owned organization based out of Zurich, Switzerland. Our company employs over 100 people, has multiple locations in Switzerland in the cities of Zurich, Basel and Zug. We’re excited to continue this journey of bringing high quality American-style concepts to your neighbourhoods. 

We couldn’t do any of this without our incredible team members! From the staff working with passion and dedication at each restaurant, to the management and head office team members at our company, we are thankful to be working together with you!

  • Philosophy
  • Goals
Be the first that come to mind for high-quality American food, from a casual family affair to a wild night out with friends, where you’re also dining amongst friends.
We’re a young company and don’t like following old rules. Every member of our team is a part of creating the dining experience we deliver. Colourful, vibrant, different, we value people & their ideas and opinions. A growth journey is only fun if you get to take all your friends with you – that’s how we see the people who choose to work with us. And that’s the culture we encourage.
We like to stay ahead and we like to have fun. We are constantly challenging ourselves to learn more, stay ahead of trends, understand the markets we are present in and the ones where we would like to become present. The FUN aspect of a project is the important part of out DNA – if the project is not fun, it won’t win us over.
We want to keep developing all our brands & grow our cool family. We also want to bring Yardbird & its Southern hospitality close to everyone’s neighbourhood. We hope to open 10-15 locations in Switzerland within the next few years. Join us on this wild journey!
