The ownership team behind The Bite Gourmet Burger Restaurant, Brisket Southern BBQ & Bar, Yardbird Southern Fried Chicken and LA Brea SoCal Tacos are Stephan (left), Kirtanya (middle) and Thomas von Matt. We started working together in 2013, when we opened The Bite in Zurich’s Red Light District. All three of us come from a gastronomic background, having worked in hotels and restaurants over the past 20 years. Stephan and Thomas are brothers, Kirtanya is Thomas’ wife. Our specialization lies in gourmet-style American food concepts, focusing on creative and relatable menus, offering a vibrant, casual dining atmosphere at each location.read more
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!
