A familly institution, the school was founded by Pierre Bouvier, also the historical founder of another French hotelschool, Vatel Paris in 1981. His son now runs the school as the 4th generation involved in the luxury hospitality industry. His great-grand-father Charles joined the International Wagon-Lits train company in 1887 and was in charge of the banquets served aboard the French presidential train. The familly 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.
