SpeeDee Delivery opened its doors in 1978 in Richmond, Minnesota. A pickup truck and a dream to deliver packages locally, economically and on time were the philosophy behind starting Spee-Dee Delivery. Almost four decades have passed and this dream has merged into a thriving and successful delivery business now supporting 7-states, rain, snow or sunshine. Those states are North Dakota, South Dakota, Illinois, Nebraska, Minnesota, and Wisconsin.
Donald Weeres was the entrepreneur behind the dream and the man behind its success. As a young boy, Weeres was raised on a farm in Richmond, Minnesota. There Donald knew the people in the area, and the services needed for the surrounding towns to survive, prosper and move their products and goods to market and customers. Donald took this knowledge and expanded on his dream designing and planning the business that delivers its promises and delivers them on time.
