Restauval was set up near Tours in 2003 by Denis Durand and Didier Caillibot, and is a major catering service provider of the Western regions of France. The company has 180 restaurants operating between Normandy and Bordeaux, a staff of 500 employees and recorded total sales of approximately 30 million € in 2019.

The directors of Restauval, Denis Durand and Christophe Langevin, will remain at the same managerial roles within the Dupont Restauration group, whose aim is to further consolidate its national position.

CIC Conseil acted as financial advisor on this operation, which was facilitated by a good geographic fit between the two groups, the cordial relationship between CEOs and common values, close relationships with customers and recipes based on local and seasonal products.
