Delivery Drivers Thrive in Winter Weather

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md.- As the temperatures dropped Monday night, fewer people headed outside.

"I don't like the cold weather, I can't wait for the summer to come. I wish it never left," said Peggy Ritter.

But the freezing temperatures couldn't keep everyone out of the cold; for delivery drivers it's business as usual.

"It's not fun but you get through it. Pretty much, you try to be in and out and get back in the car as quick as possible, blast the heat a little bit," said driver Steve Rossum.

While the cold doesn't feel good to Rossum, he says it actually helps pizza's bottom line.

"Definitely bad weather leads to more business for us, no one wants to go out so we're already out and they call us and we handle it," he said. "Whenever it rains, snow, cold weather we expect to be busy."

Peggy Ritter ventured out into the cold to pick up her pizza but she was quick to get back home.

"Stay in the house and turn up the heat, do some cooking, turn on the  oven and let it get warmer," she said.

For delivery drivers, the weather means being extra careful on the roads.

"You've got to be aware at all times, snow is worse, rain is sometimes worse but the roads are not as busy so that's one good thing," Rossum said.  "You just kind of take your time."
