Our Pizza Place in Fish Hoek has proven that come rain or shine, nothing can stop them from getting the job done.

A delivery man from the company fulfilled a customer’s order by paddling to their premises.

Our Pizza Place shared pictures of dedicated Jacques Farre, paddling out for his delivery run on Facebook.

“We are extremely consumer-focused and have jumped over many hurdles (loadshedding) to ensure that we deliver the best pizzas, hot and on time. The parking lot often floods when there is heavy rain and it was the perfect opportunity to show our customers that we will go the extra mile to serve them,” says Jacques van Velze from Our Pizza Place.

In the pictures, the store’s trusty pizza delivery man can be seen in the parking lot, ready to set out for deliveries with his pizza on hand. But instead of motorcycle or car, he is sitting inside a blow-up boat.

The pictures brought happiness to the hearts of many Capetonians and spread smiles one paddle at a time.

“Oh my goodness this is THE best thing I have ever seen,” commented one local.

Ain’t no river wide enough to keep this pizza from getting to you,” commented another.

So remember Cape Town, even when the weather gets tough, just keep paddling.
