The Asbury parking lot in relationship to the kitchen's back door has proven to be an ideal situation for cars lining up to pick up their evening meal with the help of Asbury personnel coming right to the individual car windows to which the hot meal is brought and the money paid, completing a deal in the safest of ways with limited contact using masks.
