Meet The Owners

Anthony was born and raised in Kansas city, Missouri. He joined the Navy in February 2004 and was stationed in San Diego, CA. Dana was originally born in Italy and came to work in the US on a cruise ship as a photographer. She eventually moved to San Diego for a new job.

One day Anthony was at his best friends house in Pacific Beach, he noticed Dana sitting on her steps of her apartment on the other side of the fence and decided to say hi. They soon fell in love and got married and this is where the Lean Machine Meal Prep story begins. Anthony and Dana started going to world gym which ended up being the perfect launching point for The Lean Machine Meal Prep. The more time they spent at the gym they noticed that meal prepping was something that often came up in conversation. There was an obvious need for a service to make eating healthy portioned meals fast and easy. Dana had always had passion for cooking and had been managing restaurants and working in the food industry for many years already while Anthony was doing fitness competitions and knew what people needed to eat from his own experiences and from talking to all of the trainers at the gym. They seemed to be the perfect team to try and make this new business work. They started in their garage from the bottom up, landing their first 5 customers(friends from the gym) they were off and running. Now, 4 yrs later they have their own commercial kitchen and a full-scale meal prep business that is leading the way and setting the pace for all those who will eventually follow in the industry. Living in Clairemont with their two dogs, Nino and Charlie. They are the perfect example of a husband and wife team living the American dream and running a successful small business together.
