Born in 1977, Björn represents the younger generation of star chefs, extremely devoted to his profession. Founded in 2008, restaurant Frantzén earned its two stars after only two years in business. 

After being closed for over a year the restaurant reopened on new premises in August 2017. The new Frantzén restaurant now allocates three floors of a historical 19th century building in the central city. Despite the fivefold increase in space compared with the old restaurant, the intimate seating of 23 guests remains the same. In February 2018 the restaurant was awarded 3-stars in Guide Michelin.

The Frantzén Group has established a collection of award-winning restaurants and bars as well as initiated several projects to support quality assurance in the food industry throughout Sweden.

The Group’s establishments take up almost a block of Gamla stan, Old Town, Stockholm, as well as recent expansion to downtown. Aside from Restaurant Frantzén, The Group also includes Studio Frantzén, a test kitchen for private events and guest performances, Corner Club, a cocktail bar with a menu curated by the season, the wine bar Gaston, and the gastropub The Flying Elk.

The Group also includes four establishments within the upscale department store NK (Nordiska Kompaniet) in the heart of downtown Stockholm. Here you can explore Bobergs Matsal, Salongen, Botanique and Nordiska Kantinen.


In 2016 the Group opened its first restaurant outside of Sweden. Restaurant Frantzén’s Kitchen was opened in Hong Kong and has since won several awards and is currently ranked as one of the best restaurant in the country. FK is the first international expansion with more to follow. During summer 2018 the group opened the second outlet of the gastropub The Flying Elk, this one also located in Hong Kong. In late 2018 Zén which is a sister restaurant to Frantzén in Stockholm opened in Singapore.
