PERRY, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) — Owner of The Perfect Pear Megan Brent loves to cook.
“First and foremost we are a caterer,” says Brent.
Folks from all over Middle Georgia have been stopping in for a bite to eat since the restaurant opened in 2009.
Brent says, “We have customers that come to see us every Tuesday, we have customers who come to see us everyday and it’s certainly rewarding for me to know that people take the time to drive from Warner Robins, Macon…”
Customers like Donna Lehr enjoy lunch at The Perfect Pear several times a month. The desserts are her favorite.
“When I have to choose real food, it’s a toss because it’s all really good,” laughs Lehr.
