EKXi, challenging the fast food industry since 2001
The story of EXKi began in 1999, when 3 friends, Frédéric Rouvez, Nicolas Steisel and Arnaud de Meeûs, all passionate about good food, developed the idea of a quality fast food restaurant, focusing on fresh and natural products.
The first restaurant opened its doors on 9th September 2001 at Porte de Namur, in Brussels.
This marked the beginning of a great adventure.
EXKi, neo-restaurant rather than fast food?
The term 'fast food' illustrates the nature of the EXKi menu.
But living well, the foundation of the philosophy of the founders, goes beyond the borders of the kitchen and supply channels, as well as those of planning and eco-responsible maintenance of the restaurants.
EXKi is more a neo-restaurant, rooted in its time. Incorporating nutrition and well-being with a real ecological and social commitment.
Since its inception in 2001, EXKi has continuously innovated in order to meet the expectations of society in general, sustainable development and citizenship through the enhancement of work, respect for biodiversity and responsible use of resources, amongst others.
