A family institution, the school's history dates back to 1887, when young Charles Bouvier joined the International Wagon-Lits train company and became in charge of the banquets served aboard the French presidential train. The family collection of a thousand historical menus decorates the walls of the school's restaurant named Le Charles in his memory. He was made Chevalier de la Legion d'honneur in 1928 for 44 years of service. The school is now run by Arnaud Bouvier, his great-grandson, as the 4th generation involved in the luxury hospitality industry.
