Thierry Goor has been an agency manager, a website designer, and an atmosphere creator. Now he’s taking on the role of leader of the pack with the WOLF Food Market. The purpose of the project? To provide a location that is both typical and cosmopolitan, like Brussels. To accomplish this, he needed to surround himself with players who know the city through and through.
hub.brussels, a creator of synergies
WOLF is a large-scale endeavour that will provide both jobs and financial opportunities. hub.brussels therefore set out to bring the main regional financial, employment and environmental interlocutors to the table.
hub.brussels helped Thierry Goor to:
- submit his urban planning permit and his Hospitality authorisation via its Economic Coordination unit, in partnership with the City of Brussels
- adapt his current environmental permit to include new classified facilities (including the brewing activities planned for the project), again via its Economic Coordination unit
- better understand the legal structure, VAT refunds, and the ruling commission, via its Expertises department
- identify the best retailers for WOLF, via its Retail team
- find partners in the sustainable food sector via its Sustainable Economy department in partnership with Brussels Environment
- make contact with the Brussels employment and training agency Actiris, which led to a jobs dayto recruit future employees
Thierry GoorWOLF founder
I was watching the latest trends and wanted to be able to provide a new way of consuming. The WOLF project brought together partners with the same vision, including hub.brussels, which I want to give my warm thanks to.

Spread over nearly 3000 m², the WOLF’s den, located on Rue du Fossé aux Loups, hosts a microbrewery, a bean-to-bar chocolate maker, a zero-waste organic market and 17 street food restaurants offering a range of high-quality foods.
The spirit of the former Caisse générale d’Épargne et de Retraite, which he transformed into his den, still permeates the place. Thanks to an expert upcycling process, the marble facing of the former counters now covers the bar, the signage has been turned into trendy lamps and the kiosks are now kitchen areas from which float flavours straight from Vietnam, Greece and Syria.
A winning combination dreamed up thanks to the expertise and personalised support of hub.brussels
With its impressive seven-metre high bronze entrance doors, WOLF really looks sharp. You’ll step into this den licking your chops in anticipation.
