We are looking for Ambassadors to help us grow. 

Hello there. I'm Laurel Chiten, the founder of Dinner Mates.

I was an award winning independent filmmaker for over 30 years and I'm also a foodie. One summer day in 2019,  I walked into a restaurant around the corner from me, and had a vision of people in my neighborhood sitting around a table eating together. That was it! The idea of Dinner Mates was born! I dropped my film career and made a 180 degree turn.

I have been growing Dinner Mates for over two years and what has excited me the most is the idea of working with other leaders like you, and spreading it around the world. That has always been the long term vision.

I call these leaders "Ambassadors".

My plan was to use this year and do a "beta" test here in Portland, Maine and be ready to open up a program for Ambassadors in a year or so. But then Kaitlyn, a woman in Seattle, saw my website and wanted to know how she could bring Dinner Mates to her community? So I thought, why not NOW? Let's do it!

I have learned quite a bit from having produced several in-person  and virtual events. I have created systems, assets, websites and marketing materials so that as an Ambassador you will have all the tools you need to get up and running, and on-going support.

This is where you come in.

I am looking to invite a small group of people, like Kaitlyn, from anywhere in the world, to jump in with us, and grow it together.
One community at a time. One meal at a time.

Even if you're not ready to become an Ambassador right now, please get on our list so you can follow the journey.

One thing I can promise you, we are going to create something amazing.
