While rains and flooding brought by Hurricane Harvey have devastated the Houston area, a local Pizza Hut franchisee is keeping up with deliveries via kayak.
Shayda Habib, the manager of a Pizza Hut location in Sugarland, Texas, delivered pizzas to families trapped in flooding homes without food on kayaks, keeping the pizzas warm in delivery pouches.
"We are so proud of our team for seeing a need, stepping up and helping the community in a time of devastation," Pizza Hut franchisee James Bodenstedt told local media.
"One of the things I've been amazed by during Harvey is just how good the food industry is," David Portalatin, a Houston-based food industry analyst at NPD Group, wrote in an email. "Retail shelves that were decimated in the days of hasty pre storm preparation were filled to abundance the next day, and grocery stores were among the first to open. A testament to the efficiency or our supply chain, the persistent of industry employees and the overwhelming abundance of this wealthy nation."
Not all the grocery stores have managed to keep up with demand, however. Buzzfeed reported that stores like Kroger Co. (KR) and Walgreens Boots Alliance Inc.'s (WBA) Walgreens are struggling to keep up with demand for food in Houston.
Pizza Hut is owned by Yum Brands Inc. (YUM) , whose other brands include KFC and Taco Bell.
Pizza Hut isn't the only restaurant chain to impress during storms. Privately held Waffle House is so good at operating even during storms that its inspired FEMA's unofficial Waffle House Index.
