Steve’s Pizza in Battle Creek, Michigan doesn’t deliver, but they made a special exception recently for their biggest fan. Shop manager Dalton Shaffer got a call from David Dalke, who explained that his daughter and son-in-law, Julie and Rick Morgan used to live there and love Steve’s Pizza more than anything.
The couple was planning a visit so they could enjoy their favorite pizza once again, but Rick was diagnosed with an advanced stage of cancer and the trip was off. Julie’s dad told Dalton that a card from the pizza shop would lift his spirits, but the 18-year-old manager had a better idea. Dalton (shown below) drove the 225 miles from Battle Creek to Indianapolis where the Morgans live, delivering the pizza himself at about 2:30 in the morning.
Julie and Rick were thrilled with the pepperoni and mushroom pizza and the special delivery from Dalton. She posted on Facebook that she was “beyond overwhelmed and humbled” by the gesture. She writes, "While 'thank you' hardly seems adequate -- from the bottom of my heart, thank you, Dalton from Steve's Pizza in Battle Creek, MI for making your epic middle of the night pizza delivery!"
