Sweet Genesis Shaftway installation at the Nutella Café in Chicago, USA

  • Product: Genesis Shaftway
  • Installed by: Garaventa Lift Branch in Illinois
  • Location: Nutella Cafe, Chicago, Illinois, USA
  • Installation year: 2017

This installation was a sweet one! In 2017, the world’s first official Nutella Cafe was opened in Chicago and our branch in Illinois had the honor of installing a Genesis Shaftway to make the cafe accessible to everyone. To match the Nutella brand color a white Shaftway was chosen for this project.

The Cafe offers an all-day menu with an extensive lineup of sweet and savory options, each in some way inspired by Nutella or its origins. Get from Nutella-hazelnut baguettes and Nutella-banana crepes, to even more creative incorporations of the popular spread. Find out more on the official website.
