Gourmet Food Company Fauchon to Open 20 Hotels

Fauchon Hotel Paris

Fauchon, a French fine foods company, has announced it has plans to open 20 luxury hotels within 10 years. The Fauchon Hospitality organization was created earlier this year and is led by Jacques-Olivier Chauvin, who serves as its president and CEO.

First up, is the Fauchon L’Hôtel Paris, a 54-room, five-star hotel located on the Place de la Madeleine, slated to open on September 1. It is designed by architect Richard Martinet and marks the first step in Fauchon’s foray into becoming a global hotel group. Fauchon hotels will focus on providing quality French food; instead of a minibar, rooms will feature a “Gourmet Bar,” that will provide complimentary Fauchon products.

Fauchon Hospitality is in advanced discussions for a location in Doha, Qatar, Kyoto, Japan and a yet-unnamed, large European city. The company is also in talks with a United States company about an expansion there. Fauchon's priorities for global expansion are areas where the company is well-known and its target customer is very present, such as Europe, Japan, the Middle East and Eastern China. More specifically, the company is looking at Los Angeles, Miami and New York in the United States, as well as the U.K., Brazil and China.
