Stephanie Allen & Tina Kuna Co-Founders
Thank you for your interest in a Dream Dinners franchise opportunity. We created the meal-assembly concept and founded our company on a mission of helping busy families eat together around the dinner table. We stand out from our competition because of our high level of integrity, values and commitment to our owners who are committed to our mission. The Dream Dinners brand represents who we are and how we live in the marketplace.
ream Dinners provides everything our guests need to assemble dinners they take home, freeze and serve to their families during the weeks ahead.
