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, raised $31,061 throughout the month of December to benefit JDRF. In 16 years, Good Times has donated $453,223 to the organization.
Good Times raised funds for JDRF through a coupon book campaign that ran from December 1 through December 24. One hundred percent of the proceeds from the coupon book went directly to JDRF, which was sold for $1 and include $21 worth of coupons for the restaurant. The restaurant also provided breakfast burritos to the annual Denver JDRF One Walk. Bad Daddy’s Burger Bar, owned by Good Times Restaurants Inc., also raised funds for the organization by donating 10 percent of sales to JDRF from guests who said they support the organization on November 1, Type 1 Diabetes Day.
“We are honored to partner with JDRF for the 16th consecutive year to support its mission to find a cure for Type 1 Diabetes. Our fundraising goal for this year was to raise $30,000 and it’s amazing to see such strong results from our annual campaign as we continue set the bar higher and higher,” says Boyd Hoback, CEO of Good Times Restaurants Inc. “Because of our wonderful staff and our devoted customers, we are able to make a difference in funding research for JDRF to help the millions of children and adults living with T1D across the country.”
These funds will contribute to JDRF’s primary goal to find a cure for Type 1 Diabetes. The autoimmune disease strikes both children and adults and is unrelated to diet and lifestyle. Managing Type 1 Diabetes requires constant carbohydrate counting, blood-glucose testing and a lifelong dependence on injected insulin. Potential complications caused by Type 1 Diabetes include glaucoma, kidney failure, nerve damage, heart disease and more.
