About Us

Gourmet's Delight, Inc. was founded in 1986 in Arlington Heights, Illinois with the objective of supplying Cheesecakes to restaurants, hotels, and country clubs throughout the Chicagoland area.

The original Cheesecake recipes were created by Lisa Fischer who partnered with her friend Mike Numerowski and together they built the business that delivers the wonderful Cheesecakes we enjoy today. 

Early on, Lisa and Mike knew they needed to use the finest quality cream cheese along with the best toppings, flavorings, and fillings so that they could deliver a top-of-the-line product, and with the help of chefs and restaurant owners, they were able to continually develop new flavors.

Based in Elk Grove Village, Illinois, Gourmet's Delight ran the first fundraiser with a local high school in 1990. Due to the overwhelming success and high customer interest of that first fundraiser, they realized there was a need for high quality products at a fair price in the fundraising industry.

We are proud of our help in assisting organizations with their fundraising efforts.  Gourmet's Delight is unique in the fundraising industry. With a highly trained staff we bake, sell, and deliver our own cheesecakes. This gives us the ability to provide you with the best service possible to ensure a successful sale. 

In 2018, Rebecca Robertson and Tim Dougherty acquired part ownership in Gourmet's Delight and run the day-to-day operations. They believe Lisa and Mike deserve credit for developing a great product and for developing a great team. Key members of the baking team have been with Gourmet’s Delight for over 10 years.

Gourmet’s Delight looks forward to many more years of bringing you these delicious Cheesecakes.  Thank you to all our customers for your support.
