David Dressler

Owner, Tender Greens Restaurant

Culver City, CA


David Dressler is a restaurateur who co-founded the quickly expanding Tender Greens restaurant chain. He started in the hospitality industry at age seven. After a lifetime of working for others in high-end establishments, Mr. Dressler partnered with two co-workers to realize their vision of bringing farmer's market quality food at a reasonable price to the masses. As a first time business owner, he appreciated that Banc of California educated him on what he needed from a bank and how we could provide it. As a result of that collaboration, today Mr. Dressler and his partners have 650 employees at 18 locations and several highly successful social outreach programs.


Business owners are the driving force behind our communities. They provide vital products and services as well as jobs. Today, many business owners and entrepreneurs believe part of their mission is to give back to the communities they serve. When a bank looks at its business owner clients as partners in building communities instead of product consumers, businesses grow, communities are enriched, and dreams become reality. That benefits everyone from the entrepreneur to the employees to the customers to those touched by social outreach.
