Bruno Albouze
CEO, Director and Founder

I was born in Germany and grew up in France. Because my dad served in the French Army, we used to move every five 5 years. We eventually settled in Bordeaux in southwestern France; a gorgeous city.

As the fifth of seven, I have many fond memories of growing up in a large family.

My passion for cooking came from my mom, dad and grandma. My Mom cooks lean food and Dad enjoys growing vegetables and aromatics while local farmer’s markets were the place to get protein and bread. I always remember my grandmother cooking her duck with olives recipe roasting in a 300 year old fireplace in a 13th century village called Cordes-sur-Ciel.

As a young boy, I was always up first, rushing to the kitchen to watch Mom cooking. Sunday was the baking day since my dad would make his traditional large apple pie for the whole family and guests. Kneading the pie dough became my first hands on experience while peeling apples though.. was less fun but – what a journey!..

At the age of 14, I started working in a restaurant while apprenticing and attending culinary college in the city of Bordeaux. I remember learning to make every recipe from scratch using seasonal produce. I later however decided to make the move to the pastry and bread field because I was seduced by the complexity, the accuracy and the fine details applied to desserts and cakes – discovering the beauty of bread making was another intriguing craft. I graduated 3 years later, did my military duty at the French Air-force base in Reims; which is in the Grand Est region of France best known for its best Champagne houses. Then I returned to Bordeaux working in the patisserie field for about 10 years. Turning 29, I moved to Paris to further my career at the Ritz Place Vendôme and Plaza Athénée as a head baker under Alain Ducasse. Surrounded by such talent, you learn what cooking means.

In 2003, I joined Lenotre Culinary Institute and the Pavillon Elysée. Soon after, I was told about an opportunity in Las Vegas for a pastry sous-chef position. First, I thought that the idea sounded crazy since my spoken English was nonexistent among other issues… In 2004, I took my decision and left France. The venture in Vegas didn’t work out though – I had a few tough months of experience in a patisserie in SFO; working 7 days a week and sleeping in a tiny room with broken windows with cockroaches running around above the bakery.

Then I flew to San Diego for better opportunities and did teaching, farmers’ markets, catering and became a private chef. Later, I returned to fine dining restaurants and became an executive Pastry Chef.

Since 2012, I have created a Youtube channel to share my passion for cooking and baking which has been a constantly growing journey appealing to families, beginners and professionals from all over the world. Bruno Albouze Inc., is my new passion, I plan on dedicating myself full-time to seeing the Bruno Albouze Bistro Cafe Bakery.

Bistro Bakery Cafe Project Cancelation

Dear investors, first off I want to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for investing in my Bistro Bakery Cafe project.
Indeed, we launched the campaign on March 15th 2020 at 10 am, and 2 hours later, the COVID 19 pandemic made the headline. As we all witnessed, the food industry has taken a hard hit. Without any doubt, things are going to restart, as it has already begun... However, the impact is unprecedented and we consequently won't see any significant 'retour a la normale’ before the end of 2020. Fair enough, many locations won’t make it, leaving empty spaces for new opportunities to emerge. Unfortunately, and for obvious reasons I must reconsider my original plan and cancel my CF campaign. For the time being, I am going to refocus on toward my Youtube audience which has proven that during health crisis works best. Being a positive person, I am fully confident that time will come when my Bistro Bakery Café would rise from the ground. Thank you so very much! Bruno Albouze

With Regulation A+, a non-accredited investor can only invest a maximum of 10% of their annual income or 10% of their net worth per year, whichever is greater. There are no restrictions for accredited investors.

With Regulation Crowdfunding, non-accredited investors with an annual income or net worth less than $124,000, are limited to invest a maximum of 5% of the greater of those two amounts. For those with an annual income and net worth greater than $124,000, he/she is limited to investing 10% of the greater of the two amounts.

At the close of an offering, all investors whose funds have “cleared” by this time will be included in the disbursement. At this time, each investor will receive an email from StartEngine with their Countersigned Subscription Agreement, which will serve as their proof of purchase moving forward.

Please keep in mind that a company can conduct a series of “closes” or withdrawals of funds throughout the duration of the campaign. If you are included in that withdrawal period, you will be emailed your countersigned subscription agreement and proof of purchase immediately following that withdrawal.

StartEngine assists companies in raising capital, and once the offering is closed, we are no longer involved with whether the company chooses to list shares on a secondary market, or what occurs thereafter. Therefore, StartEngine has no control or insight into your investment after the close of the live offering. In addition, we are not permitted to provide financial advice. You may want to contact a financial professional to discuss possible investment outcomes.

For Regulation Crowdfunding, investors are able to cancel their investment at any point throughout the campaign up until 48 hours before the closing of the offering. Note: If the company does a rolling close, they will post an update to their current investors, giving them the opportunity to cancel during this timeframe. If you do not cancel within this 5-day timeframe, your funds will be invested in the company, and you will no longer be able to cancel the investment. If your funds show as ‘Invested’ on your account dashboard, your investment can no longer be canceled.

For Regulation A+, StartEngine allows for a four-hour cancelation period. Once the four-hour window has passed, it is up to each company to set their own cancelation policy. You may find the company’s cancelation policy in the company’s offering circular.

Once your investment is canceled, there is a 10-day clearing period (from the date your investment was submitted). After your funds have cleared the bank, you will receive your refund within 10 business days.

Refunds that are made through ACH payments can take up to 10 business days to clear. Unfortunately, we are at the mercy of the bank, but we will do everything we can to get you your refund as soon as possible. However, every investment needs to go through the clearing process in order to get sent back to the account associated with the investment.

Both Title III (Regulation Crowdfunding) and Title IV (Reg A+) help entrepreneurs crowdfund capital investments from unaccredited and accredited investors. The differences between these regulations are related to the investor limitations, the differing amounts of money companies are permitted to raise, and differing disclosure and filing requirements.
