About United Tables

Get united! Restaurants offer more than just treats outside the home. They are social places that are shared with others. The restaurateur is the one who pulls all the strings. He is often the chef and prudent host in one person. Under his direction, his team creates an overall experience that delights guests.

Our conviction: A good host knows what guests expect today. That is why United Tables does not serve ready-made solutions from the portfolio drawer, but suitable concepts. With United Tables we explore the latest food and restaurant trends and develop interesting table settings for them.

Sven Stockinger

He had previously headed sales in the Professional division for Germany and Austria for five years and before that held other positions at Zwiesel.

Sven Stockinger has spent his entire career in the glass industry. First he worked at Spiegelau, then at Zwiesel since 2006. And that's no coincidence: glass has always played a role in his family, too, because almost every one of his ancestors has had something to do with glass.
