Lincoln, Neb.-- It's business as usual for Topper's Pizza in Lincoln, despite a man robbing one of their delivery drivers Wednesday night.
"You feel it in the pit of your stomach," Jeff Pickering, Assistant Manager at Topper's, said, "where it's almost why, I suppose, did it happen to us?"
However, Pickering said that criminals are playing a game of high risk, low reward by targeting pizza deliveries.
"Our drivers are equipped just to do change for a specific delivery," Pickering said.
"Then, they come back, our drivers do drop cash after every delivery into specific boxes in the back."
Pickering said their top priority is driver safety.
He said they limit the risk for the driver by only allowing the driver enough change to make the delivery.
"We would like them to know that we want them to feel safe," Pickering said, "and that's a good reason why we go over the cash they do use and have on them at all times."
Another Topper's Pizza delivery driver was robbed on July 11.
Wednesday's robbery was the second robbery of a Topper's employee in three months.
Pickering said the most recent robbery is unlikely to alter their policies or how they approach deliveries.
He reiterated that driver safety is their top priority, and that they give their employees training to be safe on the job.
In fact, according to the owner, Topper's has a check list a delivery driver can look over before every delivery.
If a driver feels unsafe at any time, the owner said the driver doesn't have to make the delivery.
