Families in the rapidly growing city of Frisco, Texas are about to experience a dinnertime revolution with the opening of Dream Dinners’ slated for December.

Dream Dinners offers freedom from planning dinner for a full family, night after night. Every month, you can select meals, either in store or online, and come into your local store to assemble your meals. With Dream Dinners, you don’t have to worry about preparation or clean-up; you can focus on customizing the perfect month of dinners for your family.

Franchise owner Jon VanZandt said the company’s mission – To Grow Great Kids – is perfectly suited for the population of the area.

“You couldn’t find a community more aligned with the Dream Dinners’ mission,” he said. “Our families are busy, and the number of busy families is growing in our area.”

VanZandt knows what busy family life is. He is a dad of two high school-aged children. He spent 22 years in marketing with a tech firm and started down the path to follow his restauranteur dreams several years ago. Through the process he realized he knew nothing about owning a restaurant but still wanted to open a business centered in food. He researched franchise opportunities extensively and landed on the meal assembly concept, Dream Dinners.

“As a consumer, I always voiced my displeasure when I found companies that didn’t think of their customers first,” he said. “I’m most excited about being able to focus on my guests with complete customer service at Dream Dinners.”
