    B.GOOD Partners with Virtual Kitchen Center, Kitchen United, in Chicago

  • Industry News June 11, 2019

    Beginning today, B.GOOD, the farm-to-table restaurant chain with 69 North American locations across the Northeast, South, Midwest, and Canada, will bring its great tasting, responsibly sourced burgers, bowls, salads, and more to consumers working and living in Downtown Chicago. 

    The chain, which currently has three Suburban Chicago locations in Vernon Hills, Schaumburg, and Naperville, has opened within the highly-anticipated Kitchen United facility, located at 825 North Sedgwick Street in Chicago’s River North neighborhood. Consumers will have the ability to order B.GOOD’s better-for-you fare for either pick-up or delivery through the newly launched B.GOOD app, Kitchen United website  or third-party delivery partners, including DoorDash, Grubhub, UberEats, and Postmates.  

    “We’ve seen great feedback and success from our three recent openings in Chicagoland, which has further validated that the market is interested in locally grown, healthy fast-casual options,” says Chris Fuqua, chief executive officer at B.GOOD. “That said, while Chicagoans are interested in the type of food we offer, a growing number of people, especially those based in urban areas like Downtown are interested in getting it delivered fresh to their home or office. We want to meet our consumers where they are and best support their needs, and Kitchen United is helping us do just that. We’re now able to bring ‘Food with Roots’ to people in a way that complements, not complicates, their lifestyle—whether they want dinner delivered at home for their family, catering for a team lunch on-the-go in between meetings.” 

    B.GOOD River North will offer lunch and dinner, including green and grain bowls, salads, burgers, chicken sandwiches and more. Highlights include: 

    • Spicy Avocado & Lime Bowl: avocado, black bean & corn salsa, sautéed veggies, quinoa, kale, tomato, cilantro, lime, chipotle vinaigrette 
    • Power Play Burger: all-natural beef, bacon, cheddar, avocado, egg (the option of a veggie, turkey or chicken patty is also available) 
    • Sriracha Chicken Sandwich: grilled chicken, sriracha slaw, relish, cilantro, mayo 

    B.GOOD River North will also offer an extensive catering menu, designed for both corporate and social gatherings.  

    “We’re thrilled to have B.GOOD in our River North kitchen center. Not only does their diverse menu bring a differentiated offering to local consumers, but their customer-centric mindset is one that aligns with our own mission to bring food closer to consumers,” says Anthony Green, VP of National Sales for Kitchen United. “B.GOOD is an exciting emerging chain that’s continuing to gain momentum, especially through its off-premise business, and we’re excited to help accelerate that growth in Chicago.”  

    Customers will be able to order from B.GOOD River North daily from 10 a.m. – 10 p.m. They’ll be able to earn one point for every dollar spent through the B.GOOD app once they sign-up for the B.GOOD Rewards loyalty program.
