If you ask Cindy Davenport she would be happy to say YES!
Davenport came up with the idea for her business, at her son’s baseball practice one night.
“We were sitting there talking about what to make for dinner and a friend offered me some money to make extra for her, I have a passion for cooking and sharing great food with good people. Davenport’s Daily Delights started because I saw a need from busy families just like mine who were looking for wholesome, tasty and prepared meals they could enjoy together” said Davenport.
Three years later her dinner idea has hit a homerun and is a family fan favorite for food delivery and pick-up.
Davenport has a kitchen team of five employees and her husband John.
“I think we have been so successful because people want an easy way to provide a healthy, balanced meal for their families,” said Davenport, who jokes that her team makes everything but the pasta from scratch.
Finding a need and filling a niche can work for any business.
Finding the need and filling it takes research and work but that doesn’t mean you’ll be a success. What’s most important is that you consistently fill the need and niche so you keep your customers happy and coming back, that’s what really makes you a success.
Davenport Delights has done just that, she found the need and niche at her sons baseball game and three years later she’s still going strong!
How did Cindy and her crew accomplish this success?
“All of my recipes have a story,” said Davenport. “They come from family, friends and meals that we have eaten while traveling and all have great memories that we are happy to be able to pass on to our customers.”
She started Davenport’s Daily Delights to help family’s sit down to dinner and have a home cooked meal. Davenport’s Delight can also help with any catering needs. They can assist in creating a perfect menu for holiday gatherings, upcoming special events and parties, client meetings, and corporate events.
Let’s face it we’re living in a world that is so busy it’s hard to plan meals, go grocery shopping and hold down a job. Cindy saw the need and decided to start her business knowing many families needed the services she had to offer.
