Fauchon opens in Monaco, 1st store outside of Paris

It has been announced that Parisian gourmet delicatessen Fauchon will be opening an outlet in Monaco. Considered a major reference in contemporary French gourmet foods, the new Fauchon store will find its home in the Metropole Monte Carlo Shopping Centre from 19th July.

Fauchon was founded in 1886 by Auguste Fauchon and the first original store still exists today in Place de la Madeleine in central Paris. The Metropole Monte Carlo Shopping Centre will house Fauchon’s only delicatessen outside of the French capital.

For over 130 years, Fauchon has been sharing French savoir-vivre with the world. From very early on, the brand came to symbolize French-style luxury, so much so that in 1968 French radicals chose to raid Fauchon and distribute foie gras to the poor.

In addition to the delicatessen there will also be a restaurant for customers to enjoy the cuisine on site.
