It's cold outside, but business is hot for pizza delivery stores. Domino's Pizza on Prairie Ave. in Pueblo says delivery calls always seem to increase when the weather gets bad like this. "Business increases about 20% to 30%," said Mike Dennis, Associate Manager of Domino's Pizza on Prairie Ave.
Domino's says when the weather's nice they typically get about 45% carryout orders and 55% delivery. Today, with icy roads and single digit temps, deliveries jumped a lot higher. The store says it had about 20% carryout orders and 80% deliveries.
Dennis says on bad weather days he tells customers they'll get pizzas delivered as quickly and safely as possible--but it could take about 15 minutes or longer than normal on deliveries.
