Randy’s entire life has been devoted to animals and their welfare. She attended veterinary school and went on to work in animal hospitals and the Pittsburgh Zoo, as well as to volunteer in animal rescue. As a mother of four children, she became concerned with the food her children were consuming. When she learned that meat products can contain substances such as antibiotics, hormones, painkillers, and caffeine and various other substance, she decided to make changes. With the desire to find a path for her family that was both nourishing and compassionate, a vegan diet was a natural transition. Randy’s main goal at Randita’s is to help people to adopt a healthy lifestyle free from the misconception that you have to sacrifice taste to respect your body.
Born and raised in Valencia, PA, Dale spent most of his life as a musician. His love of all styles of music has taken him from studying jazz with Joe Negri to playing hard rock featured by the Pirates, Penguins, and Steelers. When Dale met Randy he fell in love not only with her but also with her cooking. He soon realized that a plant-based diet free from animal products can not only be delicious but can change the way you feel. His extensive history of playing gigs in restaurants left him frustrated with the lack of healthy options. With the belief that food should not only be delicious but also nourish your body, an idea was born for their own restaurant.
Come hear Dale play on Friday and Saturday nights in Aspinwall!
