The bistro is intended to strengthen the loyalty of the customers to the ALDI brand, “explains Sandra Sibylle Schoofs, Director Marketing at ALDI SÜD. “The TV and streetfood chef Robert Marx will be responsible for the creation of the menus. In doing so, delicious dishes are to be created that are quite straightforward in the sense of the ALDI SOUTH values, but enjoyable and of high quality. ”

Eight shipcontainers form on two floors a total area of ​​90 square meters, which combines industrial upcycling charm with modern details and comfort. Large windows and vintage furniture combine ease with urbanity.

The colorfully discreet exterior façade with an integrated ALDI logo provides a great insight into the restaurant from the outside. In the bistro there is room for a total of 50 guests. During the three-month opening phase of the ALDI bistros, visitors to Cologne will be able to look forward to many great highlights: “Let’s go on April 26th with a great opening ceremony, which is musically accompanied by the Berlin rapper Fargo,” explains Sandra Sibylle Schoofs.
