About three years ago my best friend of 30 years and I decided to make a leap of faith and open a business to help busy moms like ourselves provide tasty and nutritious meals to our families. We were finding it harder and harder find the time to plan, shop, prepare and cook a home cooked meal every night. It was easy to fall into the rut of over processed frozen lasagnas and take out. We had heard rumblings of a type of business in the United States where families are able to prepare fresh meals to take home and cook at a later date. This idea seemed like a godsend to me with three young children and my partner Wendy with four. We researched the businesses; both independently-owned and franchises. We realized that we were going to have to create our own company if we wanted to provide the quality and variety of dinners that we felt were important. We did not want to be limited to “French toast and pizza”. For three years we developed and perfected recipes, planned and designed our space, and in February 2007 we opened! There are now some franchises in the area but we were the first to open in the Kitchener Waterloo region! We strive to offer only locally raised meat and poultry and local (in season) produce. Our clients truly appreciate this unique feature we offer and travel from as far as Barrie and Toronto.
Our specialty menus have also been very well received. We offer Gluten-free menu choices every month and we accommodate other food allergies and sensitivities. Recently we were asked to attend an Autism conference. We received tremendous praise for offering Gluten-free alternative dinners that the whole family could enjoy.
Dinner By You makes eating well an easy and affordable choice by providing you with tasty, nutritious recipes and prepared ingredients to assemble your own meals in the DBY kitchen – no stress, no clean up, no waste. And it’s fun!
