View of La Mafia restaurant in Mataró, Catalonia.

With the opening of a new premises in Mataró. The new restaurant is located in the heart of the city and is the third restaurant chain in Catalonia.

Grupo La Mafia has opened a restaurant in the city of Mataró, capital of Maresme and province of Barcelona, ​​specifically in the nerve center and pedestrian area. With this new opening, there are already three restaurants in the chain of organized restaurants and Italian-Mediterranean cuisine in the Catalan community, adding to those already existing in Girona and Vic (Barcelona).

The new restaurant occupies an entire building in one of the most central squares in the city, Plaza Santa Ana, with a total area of ​​287 m2 spread over three floors and two terraces, with a total capacity for 120 diners.

The chain specializing in Italian-Mediterranean cuisine is highly acclaimed for the decoration and setting of its premises, ensuring that its guests live an authentic Italian experience. In this new premises, it will have three genuinely Italian spaces such as Sala Pranzo, recreating the warm style of a Tuscan house with shelves, fireplace and natural materials; a corner with the Amalfi area, with a lemon tree and typical Amalfi ceramics and another space that will transport customers to the small town of Savoca, with decoration of the well-known Vitelli bar from The Godfather as the protagonist.

One of the keys to the success of the restaurant chain is having its own central workshop, from which the entire product is distributed to all units, both national and international. Currently it already has 4,500m2 and more than 50 employees who work to maintain the quality that characterizes the group's product and safeguard the value chain.

The restaurant chain was founded in 2000 in Zaragoza, and it is one of the few organized chains of this size that continues to be managed by its founding partners, without any venture capital umbrella, but continues to grow and sustain itself organically, without mergers or acquisitions by other operators in the sector.

The company's strategy for 2023 is to grow in the Levante area and northern Spain and will end the year with 72 operating units. In the first half of the year, the group has billed €30M and plans an annual closing billing of €65M, which will mean 38.3% more than in 2021 (€47M).
