“I couldn't tell you exactly how Jerry discovered Organic Transit," says Rob Cotter, founder and CEO of Organic Transit. "But I can tell you, like lots of people, when he saw what we were doing, he was overcome with curiosity.”
Rob first spotted Jerry with a couple of friends, standing outside and just staring at the storefront on East Chapel Hill Street.
“I can say without qualification that he loved [the ELF],” Rob says. “Jerry is a Porsche collector, and it reminded him of the earliest generation of Porsches from the ‘40s. As a biking enthusiast, sports car aficionado and [someone] concerned for the environment, he was very excited and amazed at all we accomplished in the past 10 months.
“We're very happy to consider Jerry Seinfeld a friend and fan of Organic Transit,” Rob says.
The comedian was in town this weekend for back-to-back stand-up performances Saturday at the Durham Performing Arts Center. Jerry also gave two thumbs up to another East Chapel Hill Street tenant, Pizzeria Toro, during his 9:30pm show. With so much to love in the Bull City, maybe we’ll be saying hello to Jerry again soon.
