Mark Bucher is a successful restaurateur and a change maker. At the beginning of the pandemic, he created Feed the Fridge to combat hunger in the metro region while helping struggling restaurants stay in business. Bucher installs refrigerators at recreation centers and schools in the region’s food deserts and pays local restaurants to stock them with up to 100 freshly prepared meals every day. Those meals are available to anyone who’s hungry. Feed the Fridge has served more than 7 million meals to those dealing with food insecurity. It also provided much-needed baby formula during the recent shortage.
Before co-founding Medium Rare in 2011, Mark owned a chain of burger restaurants, BGR: The Burger Joint. Prior to working in the restaurant industry, he worked in commercial real estate, specializing in retail. This led him to restaurant real estate, working for or representing Starbucks, Dunkin Donuts, Wolfgang Puck Restaurants, PF Chang’s, and Outback Steakhouse, among others.
