It all started
a simple question
a Neapolitan pizza

Mickaël, our CEO, was living in Korea when a friend came with the project to open a Neapolitan pizza in Séoul. When they started to look for a location for the pizzeria, they were left with the options to rely on the information provided by real estate agents (each of them with the best location of course!), to hire expensive location consultants or simply to trust their intuition.
But nothing to answer their question:  what will make this location successful for my project?

Symaps was founded short after that by Mickaël Mas, Julien Muniak and Cerise Phiv with a strong international focus. They wanted to provide a solution based on reliable data to help retailers identify the best location for their projects, be it opening a restaurant, a new store or else finding successful indirect channels networks.

Seeds only grow in an adapted environment
and plants will not thrive in the same soil.
Same goes with retail:
choosing the right location is key
and is unique according to each project.
Symaps is here to give concrete insights
for your future store or restaurant location.
