Delivery drivers busy during winter storm

WAUSAU (WAOW) - Many people chose to stay at home and off the roads Thursday night. That kept food delivery companies busy.

Toppers Pizza delivery drivers were on the move.

"We got all prepped up, we got our drivers on the road, we got some people on call just in case it gets crazy," said Steven Repinski, Toppers assistant manager.

He said rain, snow, or shine, their pizzas get delivered.

"Sometimes I think people maybe feel a little bit bad but that's what we're here for," said Repinski. "We're the ones that drive in the bad weather to get your food on time."

But this extra element adds on extra time.

"Generally we like to quote a time, let them know their pizza will be here between this and this time but on a night like tonight sometimes we'll just say you know we'll get there as soon as possible," said Repinski.

Wausau To Go also stayed busy.

Drivers said they usually deliver larger orders when weather is bad.

They said the tips get bigger, too.

"A lot of people know that you have to drive back and forth in this madness so they're pretty generous and nice once you get to the door," said James Dixon, a Wausau To Go delivery driver.

Several of the drivers said they're picky about the routes they take on a snowy night. Many of them said they stuck with main city streets and avoided the highways on Thursday.
