New bike delivery service comes to 30A

SANTA ROSA BEACH, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - A new food delivery service is hitting 30A near Santa Rosa Beach in an unexpected way just in time for Independence Day weekend.

Pronto Delivery Co. is a bicycle powered food delivery business that will serve Seaside, Grayton Beach, Watercolor, and Seagrove.

The first delivery was made Saturday as this weekend is Pronto 30A's inaugural weekend.

One of the founders of the electric bike delivery service says this is a great way for visitors to enjoy the restaurants on 30A without the hassle of driving and parking.

"I just saw a lot of opportunity to start something that can get around that quickly and bring a meal home. I don't want to cook when I'm on vacation, so I think it is probably a good idea," said Chris Cumby, founder of Pronto Delivery Co.

The service operates nightly from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m.
