Allergy Free Table, LLC
David is currently working on applying online learning and new technologies to education about food allergies and food allergy safety. Having completed the production of online courses for dining out with food allergies, food allergen label reading, and babysitting training, Johns latest project is assisting in development of a training program for restaurants, dining services and culinary students. These courses, called Food ALLERGY & GLUTEN Intolerance Safety AWARENESS Training (AGA Training) are made available through a partnership with KP Education systems.
David has over twenty-five years of background in various entrepreneurial endeavors. Most recently, David was Chief Information Officer of Total Wine & More, the nations largest fine wine retailer, with over one billion dollars in annual sales. At Total Wine, John was integral in developing the technology systems, starting with one store and a few team members 20 years ago to over 80 stores with more than 2,000 team members across numerous states. David continues to do technology consulting with Total Wine & More while his brothers, Brandon and Freddie, now actively run the business.
The wine business was preceded by the beer business in Pennsylvania, where David owned Pennsylvanias largest beer store from 1985 to 2005. Johns mother, Corey Mills, originally owned a small beer store in Pennsylvania which was the familys impetus for getting in the alcoholic beverage business.
David grew up on a 200 acre active farm in Pennsylvania. After spending his youth farming, David went on to Georgetown University to attain an undergraduate degree in Marketing and later attended the Tepper School at Carnegie Mellon, attaining a Master of Science in Industrial Administration (MSIA/MBA).
David is currently enjoying the Colorado outdoor lifestyle spending as much time skiing, hiking, biking etc. with his family, including one son with food allergies, while taking time to help move food allergy education forward.
