Brandon Cabrera Biography
Brandon Cabrera was born in Wellington, FL. He grew up in a single-parent household in Greenacres, FL, and attended Palm Beach Central High School where he was captain of the varsity lacrosse team. After working many years at the family business, Tropical Bakery, Cabrera established The BrandX Company, a Palm Beach County-based real estate investment and development company, in 2018. Cabrera’s company has built and redeveloped over 20 single-family homes and 25 apartment units in central Palm Beach County, some of which are in District 93.
Mr. Cabrera’s grandparents were prominent sugar farmers who lost everything when Cuban dictator Fidel Castro came to power and seized their land and business. His family fled communism and came to America in 1969 in pursuit of freedom and opportunity. They eventually settled in Palm Beach County and established Tropical Bakery in Palm Springs, FL in 1989, which still operates today.
While running a successful real estate business, Cabrera has been active in the community for many years. Brandon gives back to his community by volunteering his time and business expertise as a board member on a variety of local organizations and government bodies. He is also an avid outdoorsman and recently received his pilot license, a skill he has admired since learning about his late uncle who was a U.S. Army blackhawk helicopter pilot in Operation Desert Storm.
If elected, Brandon Cabrera would become the first Hispanic American born in Palm Beach County in the Florida Legislature.
