Robert Peters, a Pizza Hut employee in Tipton, Indiana, has been delivering pies for 31 years. But earlier this month he received a tip like none other in his decades-long delivery career: a shiny, red Chevy Malibu.

Peters is known for his friendly disposition and his obsessive commitment to service, according to a CBS News Report. 

One of Peters’s regular customers, Tanner Langley, told the outlet that Peters always makes sure his customers get exact change, even if it means he has to drive miles down the road in a blizzard just to bring back 15 cents.

“It’s the moral of it,” Langley said. “He didn’t want you to feel like you had to tip him because he didn’t have the change.”

After witnessing years of Peters’ unparalleled service, Langley said he was inspired to show his gratitude. He started a GoFundMe to replace Peters’ 28-year-old Oldsmobile that he’d been having trouble with, Good Morning America reported.

It only took two days for the community of Tipton to raise nearly $19,000 — enough to buy Peters a 2017 Chevy Malibu and cover insurance and gas money as well, the network reported.

“That’s the type of impact he has on ,” Langley said of the town’s efforts.

“I couldn’t believe it, it’s almost like it’s surreal,” Peters told

Pizza Hut reportedly said Peters is one of their longest-tenured delivery people. 

“There were people in my family that were like, ‘Maybe you should consider something a little more financially stable.’ But it’s my purpose in life — trying to make people happy. You know, when you’re delivering to somebody, you may be the only face they see all day,” Peters said.
