We Are Committed To The Highest Standard Of Service
Founder and Managing Partner
Alec’s career in service and hospitality started over 30 years ago working in restaurant kitchens and on food service crews. Spending countless hours behind the scenes of successful restaurants and hotels taught him that more than anything; a customer remembers outstanding service delivered with a smile.
From his humble beginnings, Alec went on to found and become the CEO of a $50 million San Diego hospitality company he grew from the ground up: ARES Travel, Inc. During his successful journey with ARES, he discovered that great companies are built with great people. After his time with ARES, Alec applied the same formula to the restaurant he and his wife founded: Supannee House of Thai in Pt. Loma.
As a restaurateur, Alec’s kitchen work ethic and approach to cleanliness are summed up in his oft-stated slogan: “If you have time to lean you have time to clean.” Alec demands that his own restaurant maintain the highest standard of safety and cleanliness.
Alec’s daily duties with HoodFlo include overseeing company strategy, marketing and administration. In his spare time you might find Alec bodysurfing San Diego’s beaches.
