I’m Paula Cooper

Founder, Dine Aware™

About Our Founder

I live by a personal code, leave a place better than you found it. I can’t think of a better way to do that than helping people understand each other.

I know first hand what it is like to eat out with a dietary restriction.  I also know that not everyone can accommodate me, and that’s ok.  But, making the decision to order rests on staff being able to understand my questions and knowing how to answer them correctly. I wanted to give foodservice a powerful

tool that was useful for everyone, not just the customer.  Helping employees understand the language of food allergy gives them insight in how to communicate with coworkers and customers.  It creates a culutre of awareness that elevates the entire team with pride and confidence.

Have food allergy training questions or interested in a demo?

Schedule a call or online meeting with me right here.  If you don’t see a week, day, time that works for you please get in touch with your preference.
