Shakey’s Pizza Delivery Hotline 77-777 if it’s late, it’s free!

My colleagues ordered pizzas from Shakey’s today. Everyone is hungry. The delivery is late for 45 minutes already. When the delivery guy arrived, he already admits he is late and told us it’s all free before we start questioning. Of course, we are happy to have a pizza for free but what makes us happier is that, Shakey’s know how to follow their policy and keep the customer happy. Hate Late? If it’s late, it’s free!
