Kathy Burghardt, Founder
As a busy mom, I know how hard it can be to put fresh nutritious dinners on the table every night. It can take up a large precious part of an evening that could be spent enjoying other activities. I found myself getting take out too often for my daughters and it caused anxiety knowing there must be a better way. Dinner should be ENJOYED by all!
When I left Burghardt Sporting Goods after 19 years there, I set out to provide a solution for people like me as well as many others.
"Why should someone from EVERY household be out there gathering up ingredients, chopping, cooking, and cleaning up meals that may not even turn out well? Instead a talented chef can make lots of fabulous food and deliver it all over the community! Thats the concept behind Delish Delivered." I mean who wouldn't love to have a fresh, locally prepared meal delivered for $10.95?
This service is wonderful for all types but it's essential for many seniors or anyone having a challenging time due to an illness, injury, death in the family, move, divorce new baby and more. It makes a much appreciated gift!
I was born and raised in Mequon, graduated from UW-Madison and travelled internationally quite a bit before ending up back in my comfort zone. I have a wonderful partner, Bill and two fantastic daughters who amaze me every day. We are avid skiers in winter and in summer we bike, enjoy water sports in the Northwoods and take part in many of the fun festivals and activities that Milwaukee has to offer. I'm passionate about my business and one of my greatest joys is making a difference in the lives of customers.
