Franchise Info

veeno franchise

Veeno is an authentic Italian wine bar, proud to offer quality Italian wines and food across the UK inspired by quality and tradition.   

We offer a unique customer experience around our authentic food, drinks and relaxed atmosphere. Our wine bars are your own corner of Italy!

Veeno was established in Manchester during the Spring of 2013. The founders being Italian in a foreign country, they both miss the authentic tastes of the Italian Aperitivo—the ritual of drinking, nibbling and relaxing post work. Their vision worked beyond expectations with 9 operating outlets as of today.

The market for wine bars is trending thanks to the increasing interest in European wines, cuisine and architectures. At Veeno, we desire to keep up with that trend, this is why we are looking for entrepreneurs who wants to share our successes in the wine bar industry.

Our food and drink

When you think of great wines and authentic platters of meats, cheeses and Italian appetisers from selected Italian Producers, you have entered the world of Veeno.

Our menu has adapted to also include food such as pasta and pizza, and more vegetarian and vegan options. As well as a selection of 40+ wines, we offer cocktails, beers and soft drinks.

Most of our wines come from Caruso & Minini, our family vineyard back in Sicily where our great-grandfather Antonio planted the first vines in the XIX century.

Our wine bars are a natural extension of our family-owned vineyard where generations have dedicated their lives to developing a state-of-the-art winery that is transformed into excellent and award-winning wines. Our family wines are exclusive to Veeno in the UK.
