Our Founder’s Vision
Born and raised in Kansas City, Lyndsey Gruber spent much of her upbringing on the restaurant scene before she had even started school. Her father, a sales rep for various produce companies and a longtime chef himself, often took her along on sales calls, giving Lyndsey a behind the scenes view of the industry.
When she grew up, Lyndsey naturally gravitated back to the service industry, spending over 10 years working as a bartender and server. After doing much of the legwork planning her own wedding and working in restaurant event sales, Lyndsey found that the industry was missing something: a convenient platform for large gatherings to book their parties.
With the foundation of PEPPR in 2019, Lyndsey discovered the perfect marriage of her background in sales combined with a passion for hospitality and bringing people together over a commonly shared love: food.
