The Beginning

The Parsaco story began with the first Holy Cow! restaurant opening in 2009; it was a small take-away with only 8 seats, located at Rue Marterey Lausanne. Holy Cow! with its freshly prepared locally sourced burgers was an immediate success and gained recognition in the region very quickly, especially with the many students of the universities and high schools of Lausanne. The relationship with students has always and is still today a big asset for the group. From its success in the first year of operations, the company expanded, opening a second restaurant in Lausanne, followed closely by two in Geneva. 

More Successful Concepts

Year 2013 was a crucial year for the Parsaco group with its first Holy Cow! in the German speaking part of Switzerland (a location in the trendy Niederdorf area of Zurich) and a new concept “Burrito Brothers” being added to the portfolio. Spurred on by continued success and Holy Cow’s business model and the philosophy being extendable to a number of different restaurant concepts and cuisines, the Parsaco group introduced other successful concepts like Burrito Brothers and Bad Hunter, on the same model. 

Sustainable Future

Parsaco is preparing to launch ambitious expansion plans in Switzerland and abroad while investing in vertical integration in order to close the loop between its supply chain and operations. The expansion will be aided by the exportability of Parsaco’s concepts and business models which provide versatile businesses in the form of restaurants, food courts and take-away. Vertical integration is the new goal of Parsaco’s supply chain: Central Swiss Trading Company. The goal is to operate full circle farming, including vertical agriculture, an in-house beverage brand, green logistics and meat farming. All waste will be recycled and reused to operate the group restaurants (PET bottles for uniforms, used oil for transportation).
