Rob Pereira decided to take a chance.
The longtime local cook and father of three has spent the past dacade working in the kitchens of Dunedin's favorite restaurants, including Kelly's, The Dunedin Smokehouse, Serendipity Cafe and Dunedin Brewery.
He loved cooking food for people. he says. After all, people need proper nourishment, and he feels a certain privilidge in bringing that to people.
But the late night hours are wearing on him, he says.
Starting Sept. 3, he's delivering food to people in another way — via bicycle.
Pereira officially launches his startup "Dunedin Is Hungry" on Monday, but he's spent the last month working with downtown restaurants about what entrees would travel well.
He expects the lunch hours be busiest.
