3 Key Qualities of a Successful Gourmet Food Franchise Owner


As a provider of exceptional products and service, we rely on franchise partners to present our unique line of oils, vinegar, and spirits to customers interested in a gourmet dining experience they can’t find anywhere else. Unlike the average franchise company, gourmet products require store owners have a passion for quality and personalized service.

If you want to know if you have what it takes to run a successful gourmet food franchise of your own, here are three key qualities common among all of our successful partners:

A drive to truly connect with the community

Successful vomFASS franchisees are able to create and foster strong ties with those around them through exceptional service both inside the store and elsewhere. Communication and networking are two essential elements of our franchise formula, which allow our partners to connect with their communities better than they could through other franchising opportunities.

Many vomFASS franchise partners find themselves introducing our unique line of products to an audience of consumers who are unfamiliar with gourmet oils, vinegars, and spirits. While the unique nature of our products often provide the spark for many new customers to take interest in our catalog of gourmet items, the most successful franchise owners have the interpersonal skills needed individualize the in-store experience and make vomFASS a name new customers won’t soon forget.

Confidence and the ability to operate in a structured leadership role

vomFASS prides itself on providing franchise partners with an opportunity to take control of their business and shape it to become an integral part of the community. While it’s important to realize your role as a franchisee will require a degree of uniformity in order to ensure the vomFASS brand remains consistent, you’ll have the freedom to tailor your approach to gourmet service to best fit your particular strengths as a business owner.

As a franchise dedicated to helping our partners find success, we pride ourselves on being a helpful resource to our partners––particularly during the early stages of development. While prior experience with gourmet food and drink is by no means a pre-requisite for success, the best franchise owners are eager to learn about our unique products and more importantly, pass their knowledge onto the customer.

While we strive to maintain a supportive relationship with our franchisees, the most successful partners make every effort to be a completely self-sustaining business on their own. They’re properly equipped and prepared to face the same tasks and challenges any small business owner would expect to encounter as they grow within the community.

A passion to deliver an outstanding product

Simply put, the best gourmet food franchise owners are driven to succeed by a desire to deliver the highest quality product. Regardless of your background, a partnership with vomFASS means being more than simply a franchise owner––it means being an active advocate of exceptional quality when it comes to managing every dimension of the business.

The most successful vomFASS partners set their sights well beyond simply selling products. Investing in educating your community through in-store workshops, and other hands-on community-focused outreach programs are some of the ways our partners work to grow their influence within the community. In addition, opening a dialog with customers and curious visitors through social media is another way franchise owners promote their products and service to the public.

Successful gourmet food franchisees are committed to providing customers with memorable experiences each time they interact with the brand.
