Today we’d like to introduce you to Dianna Brescia.
Dianna, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
Hi! So happy to be featured in VoyageLA, Thanks so much for sharing my story. I’m Dianna Brescia 29 years old native New Yorker that became a proud Angeleno about three years ago! I’m the Founder and owner of Bon Appetit Agency! So excited to share my story with Voyage and fellow entrepreneurs!
Bon Appetit Agency got started about a year ago from my apartment in West LA! . I always had a love for food,cooking & hospitality. I would always try to find the best spots in LA to eat & dine. So I decide to start and put my love for healthy eating, cooking & personal assisting all together! For over ten years, I was a personal assistant to high profiles & celebrity clients throughout LA and NYC.
With years of experience and understanding the needs of such high profile and busy people, I realized they all were so different but they all had one major thing in common.. 1) no time for almost anything & 2) Chefs & staff! I decided to come up with a concept that would include just that. Helping private individuals, families and even adding restaurants in the mix with finding the perfect Chef and hospitality staff!
I worked endless hours and lots of hard work being a personal assistant, that I just wanted to start something I was genuinely passionate about. I wanted to find a way I could help others find the best talent that they needed!
Eventually, we have bigger ideas coming to the table when it comes to Bon Appetit Agency, but as of right now we provide privates families, individuals and some of the best restaurants in LA with exceptional talent and most importantly our first love Chefs!
I am happy to share my story with Voyage and fellow Entrepreneurs because I wanted to emphasize whatever it is that life seems to throw at you and as many times you fall down, get back up and do what you are strongly passionate about. Share the hardships, share your knowledge and give others hope that when you hang on tight, believe and not give up, your dreams actually can become a reality.
Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Nothing is smooth, if it is you are one of the lucky ones! Started from the bottom, working endless long hours as a PA. There were lots of life changes and challanges, moving across the country, the unknown, but working hard to get where I wanted to be. I always knew I wanted to own my own business and startup!
Bon appétit agency – what should we know? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?

What is “success” or “successful” for you?
I personally define success as knowing that what you are doing is helping you and others lead a better, healthier, happier life. Success means creating a business that empowers customers, employees, and community in equal measure.
Our criteria is to help others and to strive on what we are passionate about!
