Burgdorf mayor doubles down on efforts with nifty food delivery business

How many mayors have you known who also had a job that gets them out into the community, on their doorstep, like this?

He’s someone in politics who really goes to the members of the community who are looking for help. Help, in the form of picking up food and bringing it to them. It must be fun to greet him at the door, ‘Hello, Mayor! Is this my Subway order?

the Burgdorf Surveyor recently told how the mayor of Burgdorf, William Karspeck, now also runs his own food delivery service, Burgdorf market. This caught my attention, because you really don’t hear of mayors doing this stuff. Sure, mayors have had regular “day jobs,” but this one really stands out.

Considering the mayor only has someone to help with the delivery service on weekends, he really devotes time to the business. Deliveries are available from 7:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. every day of the week. It’s kind of like Door Dash and the like, but the mayor only charges delivery and handling, asking for no “share share” on the actual order. It saves these businesses money and helps them survive.

The mayor currently has nine businesses involved that he delivers for, including alcohol delivery with kitchen and canteen (which also has a Loveland location.)

The delivery radius for Burgdorf market east eight miles; I live in downtown Loveland, which is just under eight miles away. Maybe I should try.
