Our very first client was Thomas Cabrol, then founder of ProDegustation. We carried out a very complex market research project for him that led to improving dramatically the profitability of ProDegustation. After ProDegustation got sold in 2011 to the Videlot holding (owner among others of Chateau Petrus), Thomas prepared its next venture. He opened in 2013 a wine bar in Toulouse (N5 wine bar) that was voted best wine bar in Europe in 2016, and best wine bar in the world in 2017.
After four successful years of operations, the N5 wine bar is now ready for a new development phase. In late September we had 3 days of intensive meetings with Thomas to prepare the launch of the N5 franchise.
The N5 wine bar in figures

The N5 wine bar franchise
The success of the N5 franchise will be based on the grounds that have made the very success of the N5 wine bar in Toulouse : a top-tier, very differentiated positioning that breaks with conventional wine bars. Customers might expect exquisite food, exclusive tapas and the world’s best selection of wines by the glass (which got also an award from the Wine Spectator).
In the last 4 years Thomas Cabrol has developed amazing tapas, combining fresh ingredients and unique cooking methods, that he serves for a affordable prices. Recipes, specially adapted to the cooking skills of non professionals, have been prepared and will be taught to franchisees.
