Johanna M. Cook
Johanna M. Cook is the woman behind Momma Cuisine and the “Great Everyday Meals” message
behind the brand. Momma Cuisine’s mission is to show busy families that “Great Everyday Meals” can be done with simple ingredients and basic cooking techniques. Johanna brings a 10-year background as a restaurant industry professional to her brand; from opening new restaurant locations for companies; as a
corporate trainer and manager; and an innate and intuitive knowledge of what it takes to give exceptional service, create an atmosphere where people are engaged, involved, happy and enjoying what they are doing—eating.
Before falling in love with restaurant operations, Johanna briefly studied magazine journalism in hopes of becoming a food writer. As a young child she began watching food shows of reputable chefs on PBS and the Food Network. She built her career in the restaurant industry by climbing the ranks from a hostess to a corporate trainer to opening brand new multimillion dollar operations. She built and trained staff teams, as well as managed administrative tasks to ensure this restaurant’s successful opening.
As a manager, she also learned how to maintain a high level of success and engagement to create brand loyalty with customers and ensure the brand’s financial success. She utilizes and references these experiences for her own brand, Momma Cuisine, Inc.
