After an enforced closure of more than a week, Food Runners Wanganui are back doing what they do best - running food.
Norman Tan, 26, had to put business on hold while he and his mother were dealing with the aftermath of their home catching fire on Guyton St recently.
Tan and his mother were in the house when the fire started and he described the situation as "quite scary".
"But people were very willing to help, willing to let us stay with them for as long as we needed and it was very much appreciated," he said.
"We've just been getting everything sorted really, like insurance and moving into our new place, that sort of thing."
Customers on the Food Runners Wanganui Facebook page were happy to see their deliverers back in business, showing their support on a thank you post that Tan made.
The business, which began on March 10 last year, is nearing its one-year anniversary, and Tan said things took off quickly.
"People were quite sick of being locked in and pizza being the only option that delivered, so us delivering a much wider variety of food captured a lot of attention," he said.
Tan estimated Food Runners Wanganui had been making between 30-60 deliveries on average throughout the summer.
"So yeah, we lost out on a few deliveries while we were closed," he said.
Not everything was lost in the fire.
"Quite a few things were saved and I'm looking to possibly sell off the stuff that we don't need," Tan said.
"I'm planning on having a garage sale type of thing where things will be going off quite cheap."
