Now THAT’S ser­vice

Broome Advertiser - - Happenings - Angie Ay­ers

It could be the long­est Uber eats trip the world has seen. Croc Cafe and Bak­ery owner Ellen Hayes trans­ported one of her iconic croc pies from Wyn­d­ham to Perth this month.

The jour­ney be­gan two months ago when Ms Hayes re­ceived a phone call from a Perth man ask­ing if the Croc Cafe de­liv­ered.

While this was not a ser­vice the newly founded busi­ness yet of­fered, Mrs Hayes of­fered to take a few pies and de­liver them on her next trip to Perth — more than 3000km away.

“I rang him, he was so stoked couldn’t stop thank­ing me,” she said.

“Packed up two croc­o­dile pies and four bar­ra­mundi pies, froze them in a cooler bag with ice blocks and put them in a suit­case.”

Ms Hayes drove di­rect to the By­ford man’s home from the air­port when she touched down and hand-de­liv­ered the pies to the grate­ful, long-dis­tance cus­tomer.

“He said he couldn’t be­lieve how good croc­o­dile tastes,” she said.

The cafe has only been open since May and Ms Hayes said so far she “couldn’t make enough” pies as de­mand grew.
