Eataly announced the company’s decision to dissolve operations in Moscow due to the Russian military invasion of Ukraine.

“Eataly has ended our franchising agreement for Eataly Moscow, the only Eataly store operating in Russia,” said Nicola Ferinetti, Chief Executive Officer of Eataly. “During a moment of escalating humanitarian crisis, our hearts are with the victims of this devastating conflict. We as a company and as human beings unequivocally condemn the war in Ukraine, and join the world in hoping for a peaceful resolution. As we continue to monitor the situation and support the people of Ukraine, Eataly will be working across all our locations in North America and EMEA, and network of suppliers to provide critical supplies, donations of food and other fundraising initiatives.”
