Vom Fass is the premier specialty retailer of the world's finest oils, vinegars, spirits, and wine. We offer customers a unique and surprising Mediterranean experience of sampling and purchasing our wonderful products. Vom Fass strives to not only entertain our customers but to educate them on the use and benefits of our unique artisanal products.

Our partners (franchisees) enjoy sharing their love of food and drink through the sampling of our products, holding educational tasting events and cooking classes, and participating in local food events. The customer’s "WOW" experience and excitement about the product provides a continuously rewarding environment. Vom Fass is a concept partners are truly proud of owning.

Vom Fass USA has a sister brand, Crescendo USA. The distinction between the two concepts is that Crescendo sales oils, vinegar and spices and does not involve the sale of spirits. Also, due to Crescendo’s modular construction it can be installed in smaller spaces and may have a lower entry cost.

VOM FASS was recognized as the 2010 German Franchise of the Year! In 2012, we were awarded the top retail franchise and our products continue to be best of show!

We provide comprehensive hands on training so our franchisees hit the ground running. Initial training is 10 days at our corporate headquarters in Madison, WI followed by 1-2 weeks onsite for opening.

Extending afterwards there is weekly calls until the franchisee feels they are no longer necessary. And there is always support for questions that come up.
