A new online delivery service wants you to skip the drive to the grocery store and order local produce online.

Grocera is a food delivery service that was created in Waterloo Region.

Patrick Valoppi and his business partner Niket Soni are so passionate about bringing fresh food to your door step, they both quit their full-time jobs to do so.

“When you’re first thinking about, kind of going on your own, there’s always those kind of doubts and fears…” said Valoppi.

He tells 570 News they created Grocera to help connect consumers with local food better than a grocery store.

Currently, the company is only operating in Waterloo Region, but plans to expand to Toronto by next summer.
