Bgood was formed by Anthony Ackil and Jon Olinto childhood friends who grew up eating Anthony's Uncle Faris' homemade food. Fifteen years later they started a restaurant with the same simple premise. Sourcing their ingredients from local farms and focusing heavily on customer experience, they have grown from their first restaurant in Boston to dozens of locations in the US, Canada and Europe. Healthy, local ingredients form the basis of a delicious, family-friendly menu featuring burgers and sandwiches, seasonal salads, kale and grain bowls. Each restaurant is a tribute to the local farming community that made it happen with posters of participating farmers, reinforcing their philosophy of food made by people, not factories.
