Danielle's journey began with a decade of hard work in the restaurant industry. Fueled by a passion for healthy fast food, she dreamt of creating her own establishment, Twisted Salads. To turn this dream into reality, Danielle pursued a degree in Management with a focus on entrepreneurship, honing her skills in the world of restaurants.
She didn't stop there. Danielle went on to complete graduate coursework, flipped her house for funds, and was determined to establish Twisted Salads. However, finding the right location was no walk in the park. After a year of relentless searching in Colorado's competitive market, doubts began to creep in.
Instead of starting her own restaurant, Danielle created a solution for everyone. She founded Restaurant Peer, a groundbreaking concept that connected those with commercial kitchens to those in need. Her vision was to revolutionize the industry by applying the principles of the sharing economy, making kitchens more accessible and affordable for small business restaurateurs.
"The restaurant industry doesn't have to be volatile," she asserted. With Restaurant Peer, the local ice cream shop could share its kitchen with a baker in the morning, creating extra revenue for the shop owner and saving the baker time and money. Even organizations with underutilized commercial kitchens could outsource the space, supporting local restaurateurs and making a profit.
But Danielle's ambitions extended beyond just kitchens. Her customers soon saw the potential to monetize all sorts of unused spaces, from event halls to parking lots and office spaces. This led to the birth of Peer Brands, a mission to connect individuals with untapped resources in their communities.
"We believe our communities have enough resources and infrastructure that can be reused and tapped into," Danielle explained. Through this network of resources, Danielle aimed to breathe new life into small businesses, non-profit organizations, and restaurateurs, all while applying cutting-edge technology to age-old practices.
Danielle's journey, from dreaming of a salad haven to founding a platform that redefines industries, is a testament to her innovation, determination, and commitment to making a positive impact on her community and beyond.
