Chef Alex T. Brugger's passion for the culinary arts came at a very young age, instilled by his grandmother, Aida. With working parents, she would watch him and his brother after school and they would prepare Cuban classics together on a daily basis. He would soon find himself both working in a restaurant while going to school. He began to work with great chefs like Norman Van Aken who took special interests and helped mold him into the celebrated chef and very successful restaurateur he is today. 

His 23 years in the culinary industry has allowed him the opportunity to hold Executive titles at a young age in many high volume restaurants such as Mango’s Tropical Café on Ocean Drive. With The Cheesecake Factory, Chef Alex was tasked with helping to open several new locations including Grande Lux at the famed Multi-Billion Dollar hotel “The Venetian” in Las Vegas.  In 2014, Chef Brugger made his way north to be closer to family and became the Executive Chef of Bakers Best, Boston’s Premier VIP catering company with nearly $20M in annual revenue for over 30 years. There, he entertained VIP clients, sports teams & facilities, large tech and startup corporations. 

In 2016 he was chosen by Compass Group USA and Chartwells Higher Education to become the Executive Chef of prestigious Babson College, the country’s #1 Entrepreneurial Business College 23 years running. He resides in Kingston, MA with his wife Autumn and daughter Isabella.
