She started in the hospitality business but, more than 10 years ago, decided to set up a small store of Spanish products in the center of Cologne, bringing the best of Spain to Germany.

The project was very well accepted and some years later she decided to start a more ambitious wholesaler to attend a growing demand of Spanish products by Italian and Spanish restaurants in and around Cologne and Dusseldorf.

The increasing popularity of Spanish gastronomy in Germany, made Pepa Bascón decide to open a new ‘cash & carry’ supermarket.

Last but not least the kitchen for degustation and seminaries, next to the cold chamber, clearly shows the pattern of Solera’s new market, a cash & carry 100% focused on Spanish gastronomy.
