Vom Fass has quickly become one of the many success stories in Maplewood as they have been growing and thriving here for two and a half years. A high quality product, friendly service, a unique concept, and strong relationship with neighboring businesses have been major contributors to Vom Fass’s success.
Vom Fass translates from German as “From the cask” which is exactly how their products are served. They sell an array of high quality fruit vinegars, oils, select wines and liquors most of which are stored in wooden casks in the store. You can pick out your bottle from a selection and pour in your product of choice. Of course you can reuse the bottle when you’re done and bring it back in for a refill. They even let you taste the products so that you can try new flavors and get exactly what you want.
The company is part of a franchise that is popular in Europe and has six stores in the US. Last year the Vom Fass in Maplewood was the second best performing store in the country and they’re hoping that with continued growth they’ll become the best performing store in the country. Anita von Ballmoos attributes the success of their store to having good relationships with neighboring businesses. Each month Vom Fass hosts a cooking class in store that is taught by Chef Cassy of Home Wine Kitchen These classes sell out quickly so make sure to reserve your place early! Vom Fass also enjoys a complementary relationship with Penzey’s and they often send customers each other’s way.
Vom Fass serves only the highest quality products and they have some unique flavors so drop by there if you’re looking to get that special ingredient to push your dish over the top or trying to entertain your creative side. If you have questions while you’re there be sure to check with the friendly and knowledgeable staff on hand.
