Few businesses have expanded or hired many new workers during the COVID-19 pandemic.

But that's exactly what locally-owned food delivery service NOCO Nosh has done in an effort to try and keep the local restaurant scene afloat.

NOCO Nosh Director of Operations Michael Atkinson said the business has added more than 40 new restaurants to their roster since a statewide order shut down restaurant dining rooms. The delivery service now works with more than 150 eateries throughout Northern Colorado.

NOCO Nosh has also hired about 40 drivers, most of which came from local restaurant employees who have been laid off or furloughed.

New protocols have been put in placed to follow social distancing guidelines.

“We are doing everything we can to keep restaurant employees, our drivers and customers healthy,” Atkinson in a previous phone interview.

NoCo Nosh, started by a collection of Northern Colorado restaurant owners in January 2019, uses independent contractors to deliver food from restaurants of varying cuisines — similar to how rideshare apps like Uber and Lyft operate. Unlike other national delivery services, NoCo Nosh only uses local restaurants with their consent.

Here are the new restaurants that have joined NOCO Nosh since the pandemic altered way of life:
