Milano , 13 November 2002 - Autogrill is strengthening its railway station business by opening 9 new outlets in 4 European capitals: Rome, Paris, Berne and Madrid. The number of European stations in which the Group operates therefore rises to 34. A key role in Autogrill’s growth plans is played by Italy, where the agreement signed in 2001 with Grandi Stazioni provides for 40 new outlets in Italy’s 12 largest railway stations in addition to Rome Termini, Milan Cadorna, Pisa Central and Genoa Brignole. Autogrill expects revenues estimated at more than 750 million euros over the 18-year agreement with Grandi Stazioni.
