Our founders, Ove Petersen and Heinrich Gärtner, once tinkered with a business idea over a bratwurst at the Augsburg railway station, which soon led to the founding of GP JOULE in 2009. The key figures were noted down on a paper plate at the time. And they worked! Since then, Sausage Paper Plate Day has been celebrated once a year at GP JOULE.

There are two founding locations, Reußenköge and Buttenwiesen. In addition, we are active throughout Germany, so you are sure to find us near where you live.
