Did you know Aberdeen has a locally-owned restaurant food delivery service? If you’ve seen vehicles zipping around town with the Zapoya logo, that’s them! Zapoya Delivery has been in the Hub City since 2018, first launching as Zip Dish. The South Dakota-based company also has locations in Brookings and Watertown.
Owner Erin Dudley said they partner with 14 (and counting) locally-owned restaurants and franchises in Aberdeen to bring hot, fresh food to your home or office. Patrons can visit their website at www.zapoya.com to browse menus and place an order. Zapoya delivers between 11:00 AM and 2:00 PM for lunch and 5:00 PM and 9:00 PM for dinner. Since the pandemic, they’ve added a contact-free delivery option as well.
Erin talked more about how COVID-19 has impacted their business in Aberdeen. “When restaurants had to close for dine-in, we were able to hire servers, hosts, and bartenders as drivers because delivery requests increased.” She said some of those drivers are still with the company today. “The advantage of us being a locally-owned delivery service is that we are just a text away to help our restaurant partners or customers with anything they need.”
A complete list of lunch or dinner options that can be delivered by Zapoya is available at www.zapoya.com.
