Some business owners will go that extra mile to make sure their customers are happy.

Alaskan Thai restaurant owner Anuson 'Knott' Poolsawat walked through water to reach stranded motorists near the town of North Pole, the News Miner reports.

Mike Laiti and Brandon Borgens called ahead to Poolsawat's Knott's Take Out to place an order Saturday, but after the call, they were stopped because of a bridge closure.

They called the restaurant back and said they wouldn't be able to make it, but Laiti said Poolsawat told them, "Not a problem, I'll come cross the waters."

He arrived a little while later with several takeout boxes. He crossed Clear Creek, the water reaching his hips at the deepest part, and got the food to his happy customers.

Poolsawat posted photos of himself delivering the meal to his Facebook page, writing, "There is no river uncrossable trust me I will bring you food regardless."
