A food delivery service is available to Fort Scottians.
FS Delivery was started in June 2020 by Selena Alvarado, 29, and Evan Williams, 30.
“We were in the military and we used Door Dash (a food delivery app) a lot, and thought having a delivery service for a community this size would be beneficial,” Selena said. “Especially during the pandemic.”
“This is a side business for us,” she said. “I go to school full time and my boyfriend (Williams) works full time.”
Williams helps in the evening and on weekends, she said.
The business hopes to help local businesses.
“We try to advertise specials at local restaurants,” she said.
To place an order, customers call or text the business or message them on its Facebook page.
“They name the restaurant and what they want to order, and their address,” she said. “Then we’ll put in their order at the restaurant, we’ll send them their order (total) with the delivery fee.”
The food is then delivered to the customer’s door.
To place an order, call or text 469.383.4156,
FS Delivery accepts Venmo, Cashapp, Apple Pay and the delivery fee is $6.
The service area is limited to the Fort Scott city limits.
Their hours of operation are 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
“If we are not delivering that day, we post on our Facebook page for updates,” she said.
