History of the House FOUQUET
1852 : Birth of the history FOUQUET
In 1852, the year of Napoleon III’s coronation, FOUQUET was born at 36 rue Laffitte in the heart of Paris. In the historic location of the workshops where chocolates, confectionery and delicatessen products are still made today, discover the myth of a House that has become iconic.
1900 - 1920
Birth of a company
Louis Fouquet creates Maison Fouquet, a jam creation store at 36 Rue Laffitte in the ninth arrondissement of Paris. Claude Monet, who was very fond of fondant and Violet candies, was one of the very first customers.
1920 - 1940
The beginning of a family adventure
The Chambeau-Mimard family took over the House of FOUQUET at the beginning of the century. To the confectioner's trade they added the confectioner's trade. The FOUQUET tea room in the rue Laffitte became a favorite meeting place for authors and painters in the neighborhood.
1940 - 1970
The Roaring Twenties
Under the direction of Alfred Chambeau, the company grew rapidly. The boutique on rue François 1er was opened in 1928, even before the advent of the Golden Triangle. The opening of two boutiques on avenue de Messine and avenue de la Bourdonnais followed in the 1930s
1970 - 2004
The rise of the brand
If the post-war crisis forces FOUQUET to separate from two stores, Monique Chambeau or rather Mademoiselle Fouquet takes advantage of the whirlwind of the 60s to establish the reputation of the house in the fields of confectionery and delicatessen. FOUQUET became a brand synonymous with perfection and luxury.
2004 - 2020
Between tradition and innovation
Christophe Chambeau, Alfred's grandson and Monique's nephew, takes over the destiny of FOUQUET. He modernizes the production tool by enlarging the laboratories, enriches the range of chocolates and extends the notoriety of the brand abroad

The 5th generation
Catherine Vaz and Frédéric Chambeau, great-grandchildren of Alfred, take over the company. Eager for adventure, they developed the brand beyond our borders: Tokyo, Seoul and New York. From now on, only our Parisian boutiques have survived the vagaries of time.
