SALT LAKE CITY — If you still want to enjoy a restaurant meal, there are plenty of services to deliver from the major chains.

But what about your favorite “mom and pop” restaurants?

A service called "Chefpanzee" delivers exclusively from small, local restaurants.

Some restaurants, like Papito moe's Puerto Rican grub, say they're only doing a fraction of the business they were doing a few weeks ago.

“We have had to reduce the number of hours dramatically. so we went from having 10 employees. We now have really one, well, two that we`ve been bringing back a couple of hours here and there,” Kimberly Vasquez with Papito Moe’s Puerto Rican Grub said.

Chefpanzee delivers for fees they say are much lower than mainstream services.

21 local restaurants are currently included on Chefpanzee's website.
