It’s starting to feel like Fall (finally!) and we’re doing a bit of reflecting on this summer.
We started off the season by touching base with our inner nerds and launching online ordering at our One Kendall Square restaurant. The program is a huge success, and hundreds of you have been able to get your sandwiches, rice bowls, and noodle salads with just the click of a mouse. Given its popularity, we’re aiming on getting online ordering at some of our other brick-and-mortar locations as well, stay tuned!
Speaking of brick-and-mortars, this summer brought along two huge openings for Bon Me. The first is a restaurant stand inside Boston Public Market. It’s thrilling to be a part of this year-round indoor market, and we're enthusiastic for collaborations with some of the vendor neighbors. There’s a whole lot of cheese, sausage, and sweets that we’ve been window shopping for on our lunch breaks!
The second opening on our list is the long-awaited restaurant at Fresh Pond in Alewife. Fresh Pond is the only Bon Me location with a deep fryer, and as expected, we were joyously frying up things all summer long to come up with the perfect bites for the new space.
Karaage fried chicken, Japanese sweet potato fries, and Bon Me Dogs (an item we haven’t served up since the last Food Truck Throwdown!) are the products of our summer of testing. We’re serving these up for dinner in Fresh Pond to help you slip into a comforting food coma a little closer to bedtime.
So what’s next after this crazy summer? We’ve got some more growth happening with a 6th truck underway (we’re looking for color suggestions!) and a restaurant in development over at Chestnut Hill.
It’s crazy to think that just a few years ago, we were one small yellow truck slinging sandwiches to a few hundred people a day, and now we’re thinking about restaurant #5 and truck #6. Thanks for following us on the journey — we couldn’t do it without you hungry folks!
