History Of Hel’s

In April 1985, in a 900 square foot retail storefront, David and Cari Borris began their pursuit of The American Dream. All they hoped for was to have the opportunity to use their boundless energy and acquired hospitality skills to offer the North Shore a new experience in gourmet retail carryout food. Armed with a handful of amazing family recipes, and a steadfast and unfailing work ethic, they set out to fulfill their vision. 32 years and three expansions later, Hel’s Kitchen Catering has become a permanent fixture in the Chicagoland special events community. And what started as a simple dream for two committed entrepreneurs has become the lifeblood and livelihood of dozens of employees who still share the singular vision that started it all – treat every event as if it were their own.
