Our Story

What is the origin of Fondussimo? This unusual name is a combination of the word "fondue" and the Italian suffix "issimo", which means "more than". Because yes, Fondussimo is much more than fondue! Originally, the name also referred to the first fondue set with perforated baskets designed by Dany Bernard!

As an industrial designer, machinist, welder and mechanic, the young entrepreneur had the perfect background to invent a new way to enjoy fondue. Having always dreamed of developing a true innovation, Dany launched his very first cutting-edge fondue set in 2018, a few months after the birth of his son, Thomas.

The new dad quickly realized the implications of his new business project and rolled up his sleeves to overcome every challenge that comes when launching a new business. Let's just say that the last few years have been very busy, and it’s just the beginning!

Impressive growth

After his first order sold out and in an effort to always offer the best fondue experience to his customers, Dany gathered their feedback to improve his fondue set once again.

Within a few months, Dany and his team sold out all the available units, a total validation of the perforated basket concept. Since then, the ideas for improvement have continued to multiply, culminating in the introduction of a new complete line of fondue sets: the EVOLUTION Collection!

Soaring to new heights

In just a few years, Fondussimo has established itself as a trusted brand that maintains a special relationship with Canadians, who have welcomed the fondue revolution with open arms.

A great local success, Fondussimo is now opening the door to doing business in the United States, where an ever-increasing number of fondue enthusiasts are answering the call of the reinvented fondue.

The next step is to bring the whole world along for the fondue revolution with the EVOLUTION Collection!
