Dupont Restauration was created in 1969 and operates in the collective catering industry. Pascal Dupont, the son of the founder, became CEO and lead shareholder of Dupont Restauration in 1996. The business has grown continuously, mainly through organic growth and also small acquisitions. Initially a traditional caterer, this family business grew to a leading position in collective catering. At the time of Abenex’s investment, Dupont operated 350 restaurants (on-site catering) and 12 central kitchens (delivered meals).
