BANGOR – You may not think twice when opening an app or calling into your favorite comfort food joint and ordering delivery, but in the middle of a blizzard, it’s important to remember the people braving treacherous conditions to satisfy your hunger.
For the workers at Jason’s pizza, a storm brings a lot of work.
Shift supervisor Connor Perry said the business had served at least 60 pizzas alone by 6:00 PM. You might think delivering so many pies could frustrate the hard-working dough boys.
“No, no, we just try to make sure everybody knows it might take a little longer because of the weather,” Perry smiled. “But we’re gonna get it out to them no matter what.”
Delivery driver Tristan Toole has worked through a handful of storms already this year and, just like his manager, has a remarkable attitude about delivering food to folks who wouldn’t dare go out themselves.
“I actually kind of like going out in the snow,” Toole laughed. “It’s quiet; there tends to be less drivers on the road.”
And while he slides around in the company’s compact delivery car, Toole prefers as little traffic as possible. Some extra tips don’t hurt either.
“Where are a lot of bad drivers that go out in these snow storms,” He added. “So I kinda wish they’d stay home and order delivery.”
