About us

WE CARE, YOU EAT

OUR PhilosophY

dean&david stands for freshness, quality and responsibility – for healthy food, high-quality ingredients and sustainable nutrition. Lovers of fresh salads, bowls, sandwiches, smoothies & more can look forward to food & drinks at dean&david that not only taste good, but also feel good – completely without flavor enhancers, colorants and preservatives. Simply carefree enjoyment, true to the motto:

WE CARE, YOU EAT

OUR STORY

With this philosophy, dean&david was launched by David Baumgartner in Munich in 2007 – a success story made in Germany. On a six-month trip around the world after graduating from university, David was inspired by his various favorite places: modern salad bars in New York, fresh juice and smoothie stores in Australia, or cookshops on the streets of Southeast Asia.

Back in Munich, David redefined fast food: healthy, fresh, sustainable. Starting in a small fresh food factory behind Munich’s university, dean&david is now known beyond the borders of German-speaking countries.

FOR A BETTER TOMORROW

At dean&david, we stand not only for uncompromising freshness but also for sustainable handling of raw materials, food and our environment.

We want to make the world a better place and have therefore been addressing the issue of sustainability in our company for years.

NO TOGO PLASTIC CUTLERY

Many years before the ban on giving out single-use plastic, we banned plastic straws as well as cutlery from our stores and switched to a sustainable alternative made of wood for the latter.

ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY DELIVERY

We also make our deliveries as sustainable as possible. That’s why we usually deliver your order environmentally friendly by bike or e-car.

SUSTAINABLE WORKWEAR

Sustainability is just as important to our employees as it is to us, which is why we equip all of our employees with recycled aprons, for example – and are gradually converting all of our workwear.

Because for us at dean&david, species-appropriate husbandry is not just an obligation, but our social responsibility towards our environment and the animals. That’s why we have been campaigning for better ways of keeping animals for years and are constantly on the lookout for new ways to continue to improve.
