About

Boulangeries-pâtisseries Wolfisberg in Geneva and Confiserie Boccard in Rolle: more than 100 years of artisan tradition 

Origins

Boulangerie-pâtisserie - Wolfisberg - GenevaMaison Wolfisberg was founded in 1961 in Carouge at No. 5 Place du Temple. It was a humble shop of 17m2 jammed between production laboratory and studio apartment.

Right from the beginning, the boulangerie-pâtisserie Wolfisberg rapidly built up a fine reputation with its core products.

 

Founders

 

Boulangerie-pâtisserie - Wolfisberg - GenevaAfter numerous apprenticeships abroad (in Copenhagen, London and Paris), Franz Wolfisberg senior settled in Carouge, took over the boulangerie Thibaud, and developed the business alongside his wife Myrtha.

Later, in 1996, he handed over the business to François, one of his sons - who since 1978 introduced more training in the field of baking and pastry-making - and in 1998 became a master craftsman in his field and won numerous competitions (European Cup in 1999). With the help of his wife Elisabeth, he developed and enlarged the business while retaining the traditions and high quality that give it its uniqueness and authenticity.
