Many businesses thrive during snowstorms

Boston Bay Pizza had 5 delivery drivers on Monday

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Although many of us don’t look forward to big snowstorms like the one on Monday, or last week, there are many businesses who do extremely well in this type of weather.

On Monday night, Boston Bay Pizza in Chicopee stayed open all night, and saw a huge boost in business. The owner, Alptug Gok, told 22News that normally they staff around 1-to-2 delivery men but on Monday they had 5 working.

The owner himself was even making deliveries, trying to make sure everyone got their orders on time. Gok said business was great, but the roads, not so much. “It’s been bad, but we know the town has been doing it’s best to keep up with the snow and everything. I mean all the main roads are okay but the side streets…we got stuck a couple of times but we were fine.”

Boston Bay Pizza actually rented 4 trucks with 4-wheel drive just to make sure they were able to get to all their deliveries on-time and safely. The owner said as long as there isn’t a travel ban, his pizza shop will always be open.
