One of the cleverest businesses in New Paltz, NY recently made a massive announcement.

In the new era of the gig economy, much of the money that is spent locally is actually siphoned by national companies. Services like DoorDash and Uber Eats might deliver local food, but the publicly traded, multi-billion dollar corporations have interests far outside the Hudson Valley. That's what made Carry Out Kings so special.

Recently, a big change was announced.
