Snyder said she sees offering delivery as an extension of the business.
"I hope it will grow the business," Snyder said. "I think it will make a lot of people happy and I think it will meet some needs."
Though Snyder opened the Shape Shop with Weight Watchers members in mind, it's never been associated with Weight Watchers.
"For years people have said, 'You know, I'd really like to go in that store but I'm not a member of Weight Watchers,'" Snyder said. "Well, I never understood that because this is open the general public."
People who are trying to stay fit need not sacrifice their favorite foods, she said. Shape Shop customers can find soups and sandwiches and even ice cream cones and brownie sundaes.
"It's not that chocolate is bad, it's not that ice cream is bad, although our ice cream is very, very low fat," Snyder said. "It comes down to how much you eat of it. There really are no bad foods, it's about how much."
Snyder takes pride in offering food that isn't processed, she said.
"I think there are lot of places to eat in Charleston but I don't think anyone focuses on the fresh, not processed, portion-control that I focus on," Snyder said. "Our things are a little different."
Snyder hopes offering delivery will give more people the opportunity to find out what her store offers.
"Many people tell me they love [the store] and many don't know it's here," she said. "I'd like to reach that market. I think that delivery will do that."
