Abigail Chilton

Ever since I was young I imagined that I would be the owner of a business doing what moved me most. The only thing I had to figure out was what I was passionate about! My interest in food started back in high school and only grew as I attended The Restaurant School in Philadelphia and then worked in various restaurants and corporations along the way. My childhood dreams became reality with the launch of Alligator Pear. What continues to excite me daily is the ability to envision and produce event after event that allows me to bring my love of food to you.
