Together they run the gastronomic restaurants: La Sucursal (one Michelin star in 2005 and two Repsol suns), chosen as the best restaurant in the Valencian Community by the Academy of Gastronomy; Vertical Restaurant (one Michelin star in 2008 and two Repsol suns), Coloniales Huerta (one sun in the Repsol guide), Club Vinos de Autor and the wide gastronomic offer of the emblematic Veles e Vents building.
The gastronomic offer of the Sucursal Group is inspired by creative, market-based cuisine, with a permanent revision of the traditional Valencian recipes, applying the latest culinary techniques, creating a quality brand, which is recognized by the Michelin Guide and the Repsol Guide, amongst others. A balance between creative gastronomy and tradition, together with carefully chosen design of the spaces.
In 2012, together with Heineken Spain, they initiated an educational project which is now a reality, the School of hostelry of the Cruzcampo Foundation, which has its place in Veles e Vents Valencia. Since then, training the next generation is one of the strategic pillars of the Sucursal Group, which allows them to transmit their passion for the kitchen to the students and future professionals.
Over the last years, the Sucursal Group has collaborated with the University of Valencia and the polytechnic University of Valencia. It is worth mentioning the patent in 2002 of a vacuum cooking device, marketed under the name of Gastrovac together with the I & D department of Food Technologies. In 2011, together with the Labhuman Institute of the UPV, they developed a complete interactive content to improve the experience in gastronomy environments, this project is endorsed by the Ministry of Industry, Energy and Tourism.
