A list of the oldest companies in the world with pictures where possible. The oldest company in the world dates back all the way to 705 AD. That's a long time to stay in business. When you read this list you'll find an eclectic group including the world's oldest hotel, the world's oldest restaurant, the world's oldest brewery, the world's oldest vineyard, and the world's oldest bank. Obviously these oldest businesses in the world are spread out over Europe and Asia, as the Americas had yet to be discovered and no business has survived from before that time.
