Our company, Bubbakoo’s Burritos, a build-your-own-burrito concept, has been expanding throughout the United States, spreading our brand to new platforms, and introducing our Mexican-fusion style cuisine to new places.
In 2008, Bubbakoo’s was founded by myself and Paul Altero. We had worked together previously and decided to combine our ideas to build a united dream. Our shared vision focused on the complete customization of entrees with fresh ingredients and a strong concentration on customer service. We have innovated a menu where customers can pick and choose what they want and create something different every time they visit.
Aside from the food part of the business, we’re also dedicated to getting involved in the communities surrounding our store locations. Our team launched a program for the schools called the “Read It To Eat It Program” where students can read five books and in exchange, they receive a free student meal at any Bubbakoo’s location. Since the dawn of this program, hundreds of teachers and schools have signed up to participate and together with Bubbakoo’s, we continue to incentivize education.
Since our first store opened in Point Pleasant, NJ in 2008, we have been hard at work expanding throughout the country. Now, with 52 locations across nine states and more than 100 locations signed, we don’t plan on slowing down any time soon. Just last week our brand was recognized as the 6th fastest growing restaurant chain in America.
Our next location to open will be Pearl River, NY on August 6, 2021, at 77-91 N. Middletown Rd and a traditional grand opening will follow in the future.
