The Wellington Chamber of Commerce has announced that Wellington Delivery Dudes recently started business in Wellington and has become a chamber member. The company’s goal is to serve the community and meet all of its delivery needs.
Wellington Delivery Dudes is owned and operated by two young entrepreneurs, Melissa Siegler and Michael Fraunfelter. Siegler was born and raised in Columbia, S.C., where she attended the University of South Carolina. She moved to Delray Beach in 2010.
Fraunfelter is from Columbus, Ohio. He moved to Tampa in 2000 and then Delray Beach in 2007. Siegler was good friends with Fraunfelter’s fiancée, which is how Siegler and Fraunfelter met. Both wanted to be entrepreneurs and own a business, so they decided to join forces and become partners. They were both familiar with the delivery business and saw that there was a need for their service in Wellington, so they created Wellington Delivery Dudes.
“Whatever you need, no matter what time of day, Wellington Delivery Dudes is going to deliver it to you,” Siegler said.
It appears some area businesses believe the same. Duffy’s Sports Grill, Bru’s Room Sports Grill, Heritage Hens, Schaefer Drugs and Taylor Made Cafe are using Delivery Dudes’ services to deliver meals, goods and products to customers in the area.
Fraunfelter noted that although Wellington Delivery Dudes initially focused on working with area restaurants to deliver meals, he and Siegler plan on making it the go-to company to call when your need anything picked up or delivered. Fraunfelter foresees doing actual grocery shopping and other errands for Wellington residents who are either too tired after work, are physically unable to leave them homes, or are simply too busy and need some help.
“We are here, and we are local. We always pick up the phone,” Siegler said. “Your call goes straight to our cell phones so when you need to talk to us, we’re going to answer that call. We give you a time frame. If we say 45 minutes, we’re going to be there in 20 to 30 minutes. That’s our goal.”
