vomFASS St. Louis-Maplewood

Anita Von Ballmoos

One of the first things you’ll notice when you meet vomFASS franchise partner, Anita von Ballmoos, is her unmistakable accent. “I’m from Switzerland,” says Anita. “And I was a huge fan of vomFASS in my hometown.”After being a loyal vomFASS customer for years, Anita one day learned that the gourmet franchise planned to expand to the U.S. market, and saw an opportunity to become part of the brand she adored. “The products really do sell themselves. If you make people taste them, they almost always purchase them. I was the same way. Whenever I tasted something, I never left the store empty-handed.”
“I was a bookkeeper in my previous life. But now I have a lot of contact with customers. I really like customer service, and being my own boss.” Her passion for customer service has been an enormous asset in the day-to-day operations at Anita’s vomFASS franchise store. “I think the owner is present at every vomFASS —they put their personal stamp on their store. “And that’s the remarkable thing. Even though we are a franchise, every store has its own personality.”


vomFASS Brazil

Daniel Martino

About 2 years ago, I was on vacation in Europe with my wife and my daughters. I was walking around the city of Gent in Belgium and we discovered a vomFASSshop. We have never heard of this store or brand vomFASS because we are Uruguayan and there were no shops in South America. Upon entering the store we were surprised by the variety and quality of products as well as the friendly service that we have received from the owner. We found acombination of simplicity and sophistication with a unique concept that captivated our senses. As olive oil producers in Uruguay, we are very excited to bring vomFASS to South America. It was from that moment we contacted the company and opened our first store in São Paulo, Brazil. We are now enjoying this family business with enthusiasm and we arepart of a company that prioritizes healthy consumption habits with high quality products. We hope to bring these habits and values to other countries in South America soon.


vomFASS Milton Keynes, U.K.

Carl Brown

I became a vomFASS franchisee in 2011, when I opened my vomFASS store in Milton Keynes. I had previously been involved in retail greeting cards and property development, and was looking for both an established and exiting retail concept.

vomFASS MK continues to succeed, and is now a vibrant and integral part of the shopping centre. We have recently had a major refit and relocation, giving us an even more prominent and successful platform. The key to this success is the product, as well as the support from vomFASS in Waldburg.

I would recommend the vomFASS franchise system to anyone who wants to build a great business for themselves, alongside the support of an ever evolving brand with proven worldwide success.
