FOOD MOTIVATED. MISSION DRIVEN.

Our mission here at B.GOOD has been to spread our food ethos message in order to make a positive change in the fast casual space. As such, we have worked tirelessly to create a highly replicable and efficient franchising system to rapidly spread our message on a global scale. To that end, we have refined our market planning, site selection, supply chain, cost-control, operation controls, and local marketing activation in order to allow our franchise partners to open new markets as easily as possible. As such, we look for partners that have the same vision as us in becoming a worldwide leader in delivering our food ethos.

B.GOOD In Their Own Words

FRANCHISE OWNER BILL ZOLPER

What convinced you B.GOOD was right for you?
“The people. They were willing to try new ideas, push the envelope, listen, work hard, and do whatever it takes to make tomorrow come to fruition.”

Bill was working in real estate sales but wanted to be his own boss. Fresh out of college, he also wanted to learn from others. He chose B.GOOD because he could see how the founding team’s work ethic filtered through the company. Now he has 60 employees, makes his own schedule, and runs his own business.

FRANCHISE OWNER JASON SWEENEY

What have you achieved with B.GOOD that you couldn’t achieve on your own?
“We have been able to successfully grow a network of three restaurants in three years. The performance of the restaurants has allowed us to grow more aggressively than I thought we would be able to.”

Sweeney , an experienced franchise owner, was a fan of B.GOOD in Boston and was looking for a franchise system that shared his values. He found it easier to finance a franchise business with a proven track record than a business startup of his own.

What is B.GOOD?

B.GOOD is an innovative fast-casual restaurant concept serving healthy, sustainably-sourced, and hand-prepared fresh food in-house. The brand features a broad menu that includes everything from greens & grains bowls, salads, all-natural burgers, sides of veggies and oven-finished fries, smoothies, and kids’ meals with sides of broccoli and apple sauce. By sourcing as much as possible from local, independent farmers and being genuinely committed to social and environmental impact, B.GOOD has a unique connection to the communities the brand calls home. B.GOOD’s belief that food can positively transform communities inspired the creation of the B.GOOD Family Foundation, which awards micro-grants to help inspired individuals improve their communities. After opening its doors in Boston in 2004, B.GOOD currently operates 55 locations in the United States, Canada, and Switzerland and expects to reach 70 locations by 2018.

We’ll introduce you to other B.GOOD franchise owners so you can compare notes. And we’ll invite you to Boston to tour several locations while getting to know us better.
