A Frisch’s spokeswoman told this news outlet today that customers can purchase the Big Boy’s Market grocery items at each restaurant’s drive-through or carryout windows. When placing a delivery order online on a delivery service such as DoorDash, the milk, toilet paper and other grocery items are listed under “pantry” and can be found by scrolling down past Frisch’s restaurant menu items.

Frisch’s restaurants are also offering their menu for carryout or delivery while dining rooms are shut down due to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.
