The Potel & Chabot Group was founded in 1820 and has generated revenues that exceed €100 million. The company has expertise in the organization of tailor-made reception events. Through the company’s two brands, the luxury Potel & Chabot and premium Saint Clair le Traiteur has become the industry standard within these two segments. The range of these two companies cover mainly B2B activities including receptions for corporate as well as private clients for major sporting, industrial and cultural events. The company has been involved in events such as the French Open at Roland Garros and 24 Hours of Le Mans and the Saut Hermès.

Having two investors could provide the company will allow them to support their growth in the luxury hotel industry in both France and around the world.
