Nov. 12, 2012 - PRLog -- Madison, Wisconsin – November 2012— This Veterans Day, VOM FASS USA & Crescendo USA are announcing participation in the International Franchise Associations (IFA) VetFran program as well as Veteran Robert, and wife Debby Kay’s upcoming VOM FASS franchise opening in Sarasota, Florida. According to Jeff Young, Franchise Development Director for VOM FASS USA and Crescendo, “we are very excited to have Robert and Debby as a Franchise Partners and anxious to open our first Florida location.”

“We have a lot of interest in VOM FASS from our Veterans separating from service or returning overseas. With 270 VOM FASS shops around the world, it’s not uncommon they visit one of our U.S. or international stores and fall in love with the concept,” said Young. “The military are a good fit for franchising because they are comfortable following systems and procedures.”

Historically, as one of the best franchise systems in Germany, VOM FASS specializes in finest wines, oils, vinegars, spirits and liqueurs Europe has to offer. The concept was awarded the #1 retail franchise in Germany by Impulse, a business magazine, in their prestigious Top 100 Franchise Ranking of 2012.  The award is based on a comprehensive industry analysis of over 1,000 active franchise companies.  VOM FASS was ranked #1 overall in 2010 and edged out # 3 McDonalds in overall ranking for 2012.

Started in Germany in 1994, VOM FASS, (translated: from the cask) is the premier specialty retail concept positioned for rapid expansion in the United States.  VOM FASS USA has thousands of loyal customers in the U. S., with stores in Madison, WI, Jackson Hole, WY, New Orleans, LA, St. Louis, MO, Des Moines, IA, and West Village, CA, providing artisanally produced products - to be sampled and enjoyed by customers before they buy.

Crescendo, a sister brand to VOM FASS, also offers franchises worldwide. Crescendo specialty shops sell award winning culinary oils, fruit and balsamic vinegars and spices produced – all produced at the peak of perfection. There are currently Crescendo locations in Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore, Taiwan, Germany, Switzerland, U.S.A., and Canada. The first free standing Crescendo Shop in the United States is scheduled to open by year end by Franchise Partner and Army Veteran Dustin Tanksi and his wife Lesli.  In addition to franchise locations, there are shop-in-shops in Taipei, New Orleans, Louisiana, Austin, Texas, with other fine grocers opening soon.

VOM FASS is proud to now officially call Robert and wife Debby Kay franchise partners and is convinced their store is in for a successful future.
