Barron Perl, who is the owner and creator of Deli Direct, grew up in the sausage industry. He took it in day in and day out for his entire life. Barron is a very proud second-generation Chicago sausage provisioner. He and his seven brothers were born into Perl Sausage, the family business. With all of Barron’s experience and passion he launched Deli Direct in 1987.

Almost 30 years later, Barron and his team have built Deli Direct into the Midwest’s go-to source for gourmet quality deli meats, sausages, delicious cheeses and other treats packed with unique seasoning and flavors. We offer and are proud to provide impeccable delivery service straight to your font door! Don’t believe us? See what one satisfied customer had to say:

"I just wanted to comment on your service. I ordered yesterday via internet and received the product today.
It doesn't get any better than that. Thank you for your INCREDIBLY FAST
shipment---never seen anything
like that before."

We ship anywhere in the good ole’ U.S. of A and all of our products are delivered fresh to your doorstep within days of your order.

We not only provide great customer service online and over the phone but you can get that customer service up close and personal! We have our outlet store located in Lake Zurich. We are open Monday-Friday from 8:30-4:30 and Saturdays from 9:00 am – 2:00 pm. Here at the store you will be able to sample our food and even put together your very own custom gift baskets!

Along with many years in the business, Barron and our Deli Direct team carry a great passion for creating American-made, delicious products. As our community grew we knew we needed to make our products available to everyone. We made sure to do it right: easy online ordering – quick and fresh delivery.

Along with promoting American-made products we think it is very important to support those serving for our country. When our food travels to Afghanistan to support the men and women serving our country, we make sure it is delivered Deli Direct fresh. Here are a few comments from anonymous soldiers that received some of our products:

"Great taste, came packaged with ice packs, still cool on arrival in Afghanistan. We reuse the ice packs for sore
knees and ankles. Awesome company!!!"

Anonymous Soldier

"The cheeses and meats were shared by soldiers huddled together in a freezing bunker..."

To put it simply, we love our country, our customers, and great fresh food.

Try us once and you are sure to become part of our ever-growing family of happy, loyal Deli Direct customers.

It all began with Perl Sausage, a sausage manufacturing company, based in Chicago. Over the past 25 years, Deli Direct has grown from a small family business in the Midwest to the national American presence it is today—and continues to evolve.

While Deli Direct is ever-changing in its assortment of products, one thing remains true—it’s fierce allegiance to American products. Deli Direct uses the finest quality recipes of the Midwest—from hand crafted beef summer sausage, to cheese spreads made from Real Wisconsin cheese, for all of its delicious snack foods and products.

Since Deli Direct is an American based company, we take a great deal of pride in our country. We also take a lot of pride in those who serve on our behalf— and support the Troops of America with great commitment. Through this commitment we are proud to directly ship our products APO/FPO to troops oversees, so we can offer them a taste of home.

Recently, we received this heartfelt thank you from one of our recipients, a soldier serving overseas in Afghanistan:

Let me start by saying thank you to DeliDirect for shipping this basket out to our troops in Afghanistan. This basket arrived the same day riots happened over in Afghanistan and I received multiple thank you messages from our troops as this basket was actually taken into a bunker with our troops during a rocket attack. As I was told the cheeses and meats were shared by soldiers huddled together in a freezing bunker and helped immensely in the moral as they sheltered from incoming rocket fire. I also have to say I had ordered from [another company] another basket alongside this one, but [they] notified me 5 days after I ordered that they canceled because they would not ship items to APO addresses, so again DeliDirect, Thank you so much for supporting our troops when another would not. Soldiers mentioned they loved the Pepperoni/ Peppered Cheese/ Grained Mustard Combination. The Havarti Cheese and Merlot were also big hits. There was one comment that said soldiers joked, "Hey if this is my last meal I am glad it's Wisconsin cheese and not the MRE Peanut Butter." You Guys are Awesome!

We were extremely touched, and are glad we could send a little piece of the US over to those working so hard to protect us. On behalf of all of us here at Deli Direct, thank you for all you do for us!
