Graduate starts delivery businessK&G Delivery recently began delivering take-out orders to students, faculty, and community members from their favorite restaurants around Milledgeville that don’t offer home delivery options.
K&G offers on-demand delivery, scheduled delivery or take-out from the restaurants Milledgeville residents crave. To ensure the quality and freshness of each meal delivered, they take orders from 11 a.m. until 9 p.m. seven days a week days
Currently, patrons can order off menus from Kai Thai, Metropolis Café and The Real Deal Grill. Kenny Donovan, a recent Georgia College graduate and K&G owner, is working on adding more of Milledgeville’s classic restaurants to that list, such as Amici and AJ’s wings.
Customers can order from K&G’s website or by calling them. The full menus, including the various prices and delivery rates, can be found on K&G’s website.
“It is great for students who may be studying and are too busy to go pick something up. It gives them other options besides just ordering pizza,” Donovan said.
K&G is also accommodating for business professionals and their hectic schedules.
“This service is perfect for doctors, lawyers or any other professional in Milledgeville. With our scheduled delivery feature, the professional can schedule their favorite lunch to be delivered at the beginning of their break. It is great for busy people who are sick of fast food, but love the convenience factor,” Donovan said.
The poor economy, lack of other job opportunities and a life-long dream of owning his own business were among the factors that influenced Donovan to develop K&G.
“I love working for myself. I knew I always wanted to open my own business after graduating college. I just figured Milledgeville and this delivery service was a good place to start,” Donovan said.
Donovan had help from his best friend and business partner Stephen Garapola, sophomore English major at Georgia Military College. The two created the K&G name by combining the first letter of Donovan’s first name and the first letter of Garapola’s last name.
“Kenny came up with the idea for the business and I am more of a helping hand for him. I am extremely excited about what we are going to do with this company, and I can’t wait to be a hands-on manager. We are still evolving, but the people really seem interested and open to our idea,” Garapola said.
Many GC students have expressed their excitement about the business’s arrival in Milledgeville.
“I think it is a good idea for them to market to students. I feel like everyone always makes comments about why no one else delivers besides Chinese restaurants and pizza places,” Amanda Schmidt, junior math major, said. “This will be very convenient for students and I think most people will take advantage of this service.”
Donovan and Garapola said they work hard at keeping the restaurant’s management happy with their services and menu selection.
“The people at K&G Delivery are very reliable people. I am very happy that I get to work with them,” said Amos Harper, owner of
The Real Deal Grill. “They do their best to get the product out to the customer on time. I
look forward to furthering our working relationship with their business.”
