Unparalleled Products and Production

When standards are completely satisfied, the products are sealed in patented, airtight containers and shipped fresh from around the world, ensuring they come in contact with air and sunlight only at the moment of tasting or bottling. Our US distribution center keeps you stocked as you order according to your needs and preferences. VOM FASS franchise owners benefit from lucrative product margins and an amazing, proprietary product mix that appeals to customers looking for unparalleled quality, taste, and nutrition.

A Healthy Trend
The health benefits of artisan oils and aged vinegars have been well-documented for centuries. Europeans have long known the health benefits of leisurely dining on meals of fish, vegetables, fruits, olives, and crusty, whole-grain bread served with delicious, fresh olive oil and a nice glass of wine. For thousands of years, residents of the Mediterranean coastal region have enjoyed a delicious diet high in plant foods and monounsaturated, "good" fats (like olive oil). They don’t think of their eating habits as a diet but simply a way of life.  And it's this way of life that brings an ever growing number of customers to VOM FASS, as evidenced by a rise in consumer spending for the last several years in each of our product categories.

Training and Support
The experienced VOM FASS USA team provides initial and ongoing support. This support begins with comprehensive product, operations, and logistics training. The teams also helps identify the right location, reviews your lease, and assists with store layout, design, build out, and setup, all leading to a remarkable grand opening. Monthly calls with franchisees encourage the sharing of best practices and ideas to grow business, and our staff is always available for day-to-day help with any questions you might have. Finally, the annual International Franchise Convention in Waldburg Germany informs and enlightens VOM FASS owners from around the globe.

Origins in Europe
In 1994, soon after taking over his father’s import business near the famous Waldburg Castle in Germany, Johannes Kiderlen reorganized his shops to focus on four main products: fruit vinegars, exquisite oils, select wines, and exclusive spirits, all direct from the cask.  This concept allowed the business to fulfill his customers’ requests for sampling Europe’s finest products and decanting them into attractive bottles or jars of their own choosing. The knowledge Johannes gained in developing his shops evolved into his company’s guiding mission – "Only the best, always." Only the very best ingredients that can be found will be used in the manufacture of VOM FASS oils, vinegars, and spirits.
The success of Johannes Kiderlen’s business model is well-demonstrated:

  • VOM FASS – 2010 Germany Franchise of the Year.
  • There are more than 270 shops worldwide, including locations in Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, New Zealand, Switzerland, Austria, the United Kingdom, Belgium, Italy, Latvia, Hungary, and the US.  
  • Award-winning VOM FASS products continue to receive recognition through numerous awards at international tasting events.
