Good Times Raises Nearly Half a Million for Diabetes Research

Good Times Restaurants Inc., operator of Good Times Burgers & Frozen Custard, a Colorado favorite quick-service restaurant chain best known for its fresh, high-quality, all-natural products, reaches fundraising milestone in longstanding partnership with the Rocky Mountain chapter of JDRF (formerly the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation).

Good Times has been a supporter of the JDRF for 14 years and, in that time the company has hit an incredible milestone of $420,000 donations to the organization. The funds raised within the partnership with Good Times will contribute to JDRF’s primary goal, finding a cure to Type 1 Diabetes. The autoimmune disease strikes both children and adults suddenly, is unrelated to diet and lifestyle, and requires constant carbohydrate counting, blood-glucose testing and a lifelong dependence on injected insulin.

“The JDRF is an organization that is very near and dear to our hearts,” says Boyd Hoback, CEO of Good Times Restaurants Inc. “It’s always great when we can support a deserving cause and seeing that every dollar we can raise for JDRF goes towards directly toward a cure for Type 1 Diabetes makes it that much more gratifying.”

Good Times raises money for JDRF primarily through an annual coupon book campaign. Coupon books are available for purchase at each store location. The book sells for $1 per book and includes $21 worth of coupons for the restaurant. One hundred percent of the proceeds from the sale of the books go directly to JDRF. The restaurant also aids the JDRF by providing breakfast burritos for the volunteers and VIP walkers at the annual Denver JDRF One Walk that raises money to find a cure for Type 1 Diabetes. Bad Daddy’s Burger Bar, which is owned by Good Times Restaurants Inc., also helped the cause by donating three private tasting dinners to the 2015 JDRF Dream Gala.

“We value all of our contributors and we are especially proud to partner with Good Times as they have been extremely generous over the years,” says Rachel LeClere, Development Manager for JDRF. “The coupon books are always a big hit and they are a really fun way for the community to contribute to the JDRF, while getting to enjoy some great food. Every dollar helps in our mission to find a cure for Type 1 Diabetes, including supporting local research here in Colorado at locations like the Barbara Davis Center and other research hospitals.”

Founded in 1987 in Boulder, Colorado, Good Times prides itself on serving fast food to be proud of by offering a high quality, fresh, unique, proprietary selection of hamburgers made with Meyer All-Natural, All-Angus beef, All-Natural chicken from Springer Mountain Farms, Hatch Valley Green Chile Breakfast Burritos, signature Wild Fries and Natural Cut Fries, Beer Battered Onion Rings and fresh, creamy Frozen Custard in a variety of flavors, hand-spun shakes, and Spoonbenders.

A great cause and a great partnership. Thanks, Good Times, for giving back to our Colorado community!

Great article and my heart goes out to all folks dealing with diabetes. I have been a distance runner all my life and have always valued diet and health. We all take so much for granted who are not dealing with diabetes. Fortunately, diet, making wise decisions and choices and having organizations like Good Times little by little we are going to make an even larger dent in the diabetes issues. I share health, nutrition and diabetes assistance on my website and will share for anyone who needs further assistance with combating diabetes. Good Times, thanks for what you are doing for the state of colorado, lived out there for nearly 8 years while stationed at Fort Carson. Hope this helps.

cindy bunch is my name; i suffered Diabetes for several years. My sugar level was as high as anything you can think about. i looked for how to get rid of this diabetes for a long period of time, but could not found any solution. Though i have always believed on herbal medicine, but was never chanced to look for any because of my political carrier. But not too long i saw some good news on the internet on how a herbal doctor cured so many persons of various diseases, and viruses. So i also decided to contact the doctor those people talked about he is by the name Doctor Alien Nwachukwu. I emailed him, and i explained my problem to him, he said he has the cure for diabetes and i decided to give him a try because there is no harm in trying. So i started the process, and he prepared some herbs, and sent it to me here in my country, so i began to use it, and behold it worked for me like a magic. I am happy to say today i am diabetes free, and my sugar level is back to normalcy. Please if you also have same, and or similar problem please rush to contact Doctor Alien Nwachukwu before it becomes too late for you. His email is [email protected] and his phone number is +2347067847693. Just email, or call him.
