Pronto Delivery Co., a food delivery service powered by electric bicycles, began taking orders earlier this month. Pronto will initially service Grayton Beach, WaterColor, Seaside and Seagrove nightly, from 4 to 9 p.m., along with a special breakfast delivery to an expanded area.
Frustrated by a lack of food delivery selections, founders Chris Cumby, Glen Metropolit and Rob Truax were inspired to deliver a much-needed concept to 30A by bike. The initial rollout includes 30A favorites Barefoot BBQ, Bud and Alley’s Pizza Bar + Trattoria, and Charlie’s Donut Truck, with Chiringo starting later in July.
“There are days where you just don’t want to cook, and waiting in traffic to pick up a meal just isn’t an option,” says Metropolit. “As dads, we understand the balancing act of wanting a great dining experience without sacrificing the sanctity of bedtime. With Pronto, you get the best of both worlds, and your favorite 30A foods are delivered right to your door.”
The use of electric bicycles was a vital element in the development of the business. With traffic intensifying on 30A, bikes are often the fastest moving mode of transportation along the scenic highway. Electric bikes allow riders to cover greater distances in less time, creating a fast and fresh food delivery experience for users.
“From a sustainability standpoint, the use of electric bikes was a no brainer,” says Cumby. “We want to provide a service that locals and visitors both need, without negatively impacting the environment of this beautiful place we call home.”
