Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. Restaurant , United States
Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. Restaurant  franchise opportunity.
Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. Restaurant

Themed American Casual Dining Restaurant:
Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. Restaurants, Inc. operates and franchises high-volume, specialty casual dining restaurants in the United States and select international markets, enjoying 11 out of the past 13 years of positive comparable restaurant sales, and average US unit sales volume of $7.1 million, well above sales levels of conventional casual dining concepts.

In 1996 a license was granted allowing the use of trademarks based on the Forrest Gump motion picture from Paramount Licensing Inc. The Bubba Gump brand originated in the critically acclaimed Academy Award wining movie Forrest Gump.

While the affiliation to the movie Forrest Gump often attracts first-time customers, Bubba Gump has created a distinct, standalone global restaurant brand recognized beyond the film. The quality of the food and emphasis on customer service result in customer retention, loyalty to the Bubba Gump restaurant brand and high unit sales volumes.

Bubba Gump restaurants are designed to appear as if the film's characters Forrest Gump and his friend Bubba built their own shrimp restaurant. Memorabilia reflective of the local traditions and award-winning film combine with engaging service to make Bubba Gump a unique dining experience.

Bubba Gump also sells licensed merchandise such as t-shirts, hats and glassware in retail stores attached to its restaurants. Merchandise sales make up approximately 10% of Bubba Gump's total revenue.

Positioned as a proven, differentiated leader in specialty casual dining Bubba Gump combines a unique atmosphere with exceptional restaurant operations, food quality and service which repeatedly exceeds guest expectations.

Bubba Gump offers Franchise opportunities and exclusive Development Rights in major world markets outside the United States, supported by an internationally experienced, innovative, top-line oriented team and a wide-ranging infrastructure.
