Fresh. Local.


It Just Makes Sense!

Delish Delivered Could Be Your Next Perfect Move


As a Delish Delivered franchise owner, you’ll deliver locally prepared, fully-cooked, delicious meals to customers who prefer to spend their time on activities other than cooking.

Fresh, chef-developed meals are ready to eat after only three short minutes in the microwave.

Delish Delivered is an ideal opportunity for community- minded business builders who understand the importance of making more time for things that matter.

Customers Need Delish Delivered!

“I’ve never enjoyed cooking or grocery shopping, so being single and working constantly has left me with limited and poor food choices. I feel really good about getting a well-balanced meal.”

– Nancy – New Berlin, WI

“Your meals have been great for my dad! My Mom (his wife) of 60 years recently passed away and your meals are a life saver for him.”

– Ryan – Mequon, WI

“I LOVE this service!!! It has made my life manageable again. Fresh, home cooked meals that taste AMAZING at my door so I can focus on munchkins when I get home from work instead of cooking!! Thank you for giving me back time to spend on the important things
in life”.

– Lizzie – Shorewood, WI

What Franchise Ownership Can Mean for YOU

Making the decision to build a business with Delish Delivered means you can:

  • Be your own boss

  • Go into business for yourself but not by yourself

  • Enjoy a flexible part time schedule

  • Hire a chef or work in the kitchen yourself (your choice!)

  • Make a positive impact within your community

  • Build something amazing for yourself and those you care about

  • Be your own best customer – Why Cook?

There Had to Be a Better Way

“Mom!” “What’s for dinner?”

CEO and Founder Kathy Burghardt knew there had to be a better way as she struggled to figure out dinner each night for her daughters. As a working Mom, she wanted to put fresh and nutritious meals on the table and still have quality time outside the kitchen.

Inspiration struck one evening after rushing home from evening activities and once again picking up dinner from a restaurant. She began to put her years of professional development and franchise experience to work by creating, building, and growing a company that solved a problem for her community and herself. In her heart she knew this was a service people would love… and she was right.

The Delish Delivered franchise program is a flexible and rewarding business model made for people like Kathy who are inspired to make life more meaningful.

Who Craves Fresh Meal Delivery?

Think of all the people you can help by preparing and delivering fresh, delicious, comforting meals on a prepaid, regularly scheduled basis:

  • Busy people – isn’t that everyone?

  • New parents

  • Seniors or homebound individuals

  • Those with change of life circumstances: death, divorce, injury, etc.

  • Anyone who appreciates delicious food and
    extra free time!

The Delish Delivered Difference

Why we are exceptional in the prepared meal delivery category:

  • Our chef-developed meals are made locally – not shipped from who knows where!

  • Our meals are ready to heat and eat in three minutes! We aren’t sending out a box of ingredients for our customers to figure out how to assemble. Who has time for that plus scrubbing pots and pans?

  • Customers can order a-la-carte, autopilot or subscribe and save! We offer flexibility!

  • Our user-friendly website and proprietary business management software streamlines and automates the handling of all customer orders. Maximized convenience for all!

  • The business is built on recurring revenue with customers prepaying for their meals. No collections!

A Simplified, Strategic Business Model

Customers choose their meals from the Delish Delivered website and place their orders anytime before the weekly deadline. They can order weekly, several weeks at a time, or choose AUTOPILOT to not choose at all!


Your team prepares and delivers the meals on Monday through Wednesday.

You utilize the Delish Delivered proprietary technology platform to efficiently run your business each and every week!

This is a strategically designed, streamlined business model with top-line proprietary technology and a concept that is rewarding on so many levels. It has been developed with franchise owners in mind. We can’t wait to tell you more about it!

Your Delish Delivered Business

While the business end of things can be run from a home-office, franchise owners will need access to 1,100 to 1,400 square feet of available kitchen space.

Options may include:

• Shared space with a church, or caterer

• Rented vacant restaurant space

• Your own built-out kitchen space with specified equipment

It’s a flexible model with options to suit your style and community. Get ready to deliver meals to those who appreciate it most!
