Meet a pizza delivery boy who delivers during the snowstorm…in shorts


MAUMEE, Ohio (WTVG) – Cold weather means buoyant business for hot pizza.

At PizzAroma in Maumee, there are so many orders that at one point a delivery on Friday February 4, 2022 could take an hour and a half.

“It’s mostly deliveries with all that snow. People don’t want to go out,” said Josh Dalton, responsible for most of these deliveries.

Joe is 18 years old. He is a senior at Maumee High School. And he wears shorts in the snow.

“I basically live in this weather,” Dalton explained, “I’ve lived here all my life. I enjoyed the cold weather, basically.

This recent cold spell was preceded by a storm that regularly brought snow to the Toledo region for more than 36 hours. Order after order on a freezing Friday keeps Josh on his toes.

“People are very generous at this time of year, when it’s cold and snowing. They see me, especially in shorts, and they’re like, “Wow. We have to tip this man a good tip,” adds Josh.

With all the talk of the big resignation, Josh says he’s happy with the job he’s had for the past two years. Consider it a breath of fresh air.
