Casa de Peri is a concept that came into fruition in Melbourne, Australia. Its cuisine stems from the founders’ fascination with the famous Portuguese Peri-Peri, which refers to “Chilli Pepper”. Casa de Peri Global was founded by a couple of friends, Jonathan Lee and Rama Hutagalung, in Melbourne Australia in 2011 and now represents the parent company of all Casa de Peri stores. The founders are not chefs by trade, Jon was working in finance and Rama is an entrepreneur with several successful startups mainly in IT and Telecommunication sectors. They became business partners through a joint venture where they bought and ran a successful quick service Food and Beverage business. Having a common dream of creating a brand of their own, they went about perfecting their business concept.
