Sisters Sara GilBride and Laura Prefling are native Phoenicians, both graduating from Apollo High School and Northern Arizona University. While Sara has a background in management and government contracts and Laura has a background in communications and public relations, their shared love of family and food brought them together to open their first Dream Dinners in 2006. In 2007, they bought their second location – the Ahwatukee store which had opened in 2004. A few years later, brought the bravery (and naivety!) to open a third location, located in Scottsdale.
Growing up, Sara and Laura’s mom MADE them sit down at the dinner table every night, and MADE them drink their milk. As teenagers, it was utterly infuriating to have no TV and no answering the phone… which was at the time, of course, a landline, hanging on the wall that the whole family had to share! Well, fast forward 15… or 20… or 30 years and both Sara and Laura now see the importance of what their mom was trying to do. And now, as Laura is mom
to 3 kids and Sara is stepmom to a teenager, they also enjoy “torturing” their own children with these same important rules. It is now not only a job, but a passion for them to help bring other families together around the dinner table.
