Alie Sockol is the Founder and CEO of Brunches International, which was launched in 2016 from her successful Instagram account @BrunchesofBoston. Originally started to chronicle the Boston brunch scene and make it easier for people to identify where to brunch around the city, @BrunchesofBoston gained a fast following and in the summer of 2015 Alie began developing the business plan for what is now Brunches International, a lifestyle brand, content site and events production company with a hyper-local focus on brunch culture. In June of 2016 she left The Boston Globe after a five year tenure in Digital Content, Events and Marketing to pursue her own business full time. In the four months since then, Brunches of Boston (the Boston sub-brand of Brunches International) has hosted over 20 events, hired eight editorial writers for brunchesofboston.com, and tripled the following on @BrunchesofBoston. Using her focused Instagram strategy, Alie continues to increase the @BrunchesofBoston following each day and convert followers into both clients and Brunches of Boston event attendees.
