For Ueli Prager, the founder of Mövenpick, the key to a successful business was a simple idea. "We aren’t doing anything extraordinary" he was fond of saying. "We are simply successful because we are doing quite normal things in an extraordinary manner." It was a philosophy that revolutionised the European restaurant business and inspired a completely new generation of hospitality.
