Theresa Nemetz

Theresa Nemetz combined her love for Milwaukee and her husband’s love for great food to create Milwaukee Food & City Tours in 2008. Serving as a non-profit executive director and fundraiser at the time, the business started as a hobby and grew into a full-time career for both herself and her team of itinerary planners. Not only do they offer tours in Milwaukee, but after acquiring Chicago Food Tours, they also operate tours in Chicago and offer culinary vacations around the world under the name of Travel Deliciously as well. Then, facing a 100% loss of revenue in 2020, she pivoted the company significantly in order to survive as a tourism-based company during a pandemic by launching Delicious Food Delivered to bring local businesses to doorsteps. Rather than host 15,000 guests on tours, they have pivoted to ship 15,000 gift boxes around the world. Nemetz anxiously awaits the post-pandemic return of travel though and continues to have her finger on the pulse of what is happening in tourism and hopes to eventually be the first tour operator to bring self-driving technology to tourism in the Midwest.
