JUAN CARLOS BRENES

CHEF DE CUISINE

Brenes joins Kruse at Vergennes Laundry after cooking alongside him at the Basin Harbor Club for several years. “Juan is the back bone of my success hands down. He is my wing-man and right-hand man and couldn't ask for anyone else to help me with my new venture and dream. He brings in a level of experience that is hard to find,” said Kruse.

REBECCA CHAMBERLAND
