The Benefits of a Try-Before-You-Buy Shopping Experience


Here at vomFASS, we pride ourselves on breaking the mold of traditional food and drink retailing by giving customers more than just a great product––we provide an unforgettable experience that quickly turns curious newcomers into loyal customers.

While our wide selection of gourmet products is the cornerstone of the vomFASS service, our European-style presentation of oils, vinegars, and spirits gives customers an in-store experience rarely found anywhere else. Our try-before-you-buy model does away with standard product descriptions and allows the customer to enjoy samples of gourmet products right inside the store.

Not only does this reassure the customer they’re getting exactly what they want, it also allows them to discover completely new flavors they otherwise may have never experienced.

Let’s explore why the try-before-you-buy service model provides a huge advantage for gourmet food and drink franchises looking to stand out.

A new and exciting way to shop for local customers

While sampling products prior to purchase has been a common practice in many European stores for centuries, it’s rare to find such a service being widely used here in the United States. This makes it a great opportunity to stand out to customers not only by improving their dining experiences with new and unique flavors, but also by making the shopping process more than just browsing shelves.

Instead of wheeling a cart up and down aisle upon aisle of boxed up, shrink-wrapped grocery items you’d find at a standard grocer, curious customers can savor it all for themselves by filling a glass and enjoying rich flavors from all over the world while they traverse the warm and inviting store environment.

As a vomFASS Franchise Partner, you’ll become more than just a store owner––you’ll play an integral role in the one-of-a-kind customer experience that begins as soon as they walk through the door.

Sampling stays true to a genuine gourmet experience

In the culinary world, chefs almost always use their own palettes to determine which ingredients to buy when they shop for new tastes. Here at vomFASS, we take a cue from the gourmet professionals by applying this practice inside our stores, letting everyone be their own judge of what will work best in their kitchen.

Adhering to the old fashioned tradition of sampling fine foods and drink right inside the shop, the finest providers of gourmet products have always stood behind their products by allowing customers to let their taste buds do the choosing for them.

At vomFASS, this idea lives on through the tapped casks and amphorae lining our
store walls. As a Franchise Partner, you’ll guide customers to products and offer helpful advice and product information they’ll truly treasure as a gourmet service experience.

The perfect way to introduce new flavors to customers hungry for something different

Since vomFASS sources its exclusive products from all over the world, much of our inventory may be very new to those who enter the store for the first time. While other stores only tell you what’s different about their products, vomFASS turns a simple shopping trip into a gourmet sampling session by showing you firsthand.

We’re proud to present bold new flavors to foodies and casual cooks alike who are tired of the same old thing. By sampling our oils, vinegars, and spices right in the store, it doesn’t take much convincing for customers to understand we’re all about quality every step of the way.
