About

“My best friend and business partner Ed and I are beyond excited to bring our farm to table gourmet Burgher concept to Washington County and Southpointe. Between his years in leadership as a retired 21-year service disabled Navy veteran and my decades of experience in the restaurant business, we make the perfect team. From a marketing side, my years of being on the radio has taught me to always be innovating. My 20 years in the service industry has taught me how to create a great dining experience from beginning to end. We intend to be a vital part of the community, not only to the businesses, but the surrounding residential communities as well, through our partnerships and charitable contributions. “ - Bubba

The Case for Bubba’s Gourmet Burghers and Beer at Southpointe

Bubba’s Gourmet Burghers and Beer always serves fresh, local and antibiotic/hormone free food in our establishments. In fact, there are no freezers in any of the Bubba’s Gourmet Burghers and Beer locations. Southpointe is a growing community and when parents and guardians bring their children to the Printscape Arena they will have access to quality food and service while they are at the complex.

Bubba’s Gourmet Burghers and Beer will be a pillar in the community and supportive of those participants in the various activities that take place inside the Printscape Arena. We plan to sponsor teams, host charitable events, and give back to the supporting community and businesses of Southpointe.

When you eat at a Bubba’s Gourmet Burghers and Beer location you are eating the best quality Burgher you have ever tasted! We use a proprietary blend of New York Strip, Ribeye, Sirloin and Brisket ground fresh daily, to make this Burgher second-to-none. No steroids. No antibiotics. All natural and fresh. Same goes for our chicken. We buy fresh and local whenever possible, and we truly embrace farm to table.

Bubba’s Gourmet Burghers and Beer plans to reopen the former Jay’s Sports Bar / The BLVD space at the Printscape Arena and provide quality food and services to the community, businesses, and visitors of the facility. We plan to emphasize a sport based theme that will include one of a kind autographed sports memorabilia that is also for sale and host visits from various sports stars.

Risks and challenges

Why should you help us?

• We are just two high school friends (one a local radio personality and the other a service disabled veteran) who are chasing the American dream for our families while also doing our part to give back to the local community and create jobs and opportunities for those in the area who want to be a part of a winning team.

We hope you believe in us, as much as we believe in ourselves.

Therefore, if we are going to ask you to part with your hard-earned cash, it is incumbent upon us to be good stewards of these funds and minimize your risk as a supporter. 

Moreover, there are many significant assets and unique circumstances that make investing in Bubba’s Gourmet Burghers and Beer at Southpointe feasible and sustainable:

- Bubba’s Gourmet Burghers and Beer with be taking over an existing restaurant space and will need to make some adjustments to get the space ready for use again.
- We will be one part of a much larger, established complex of significant sports and community activities at the Iceoplex.
- Bubba enjoys strong and broad community support as a resident of South Fayette.
- Private party space will be available at Bubba’s Gourmet Burghers and Beer at Southpointe’s restaurant.
- Community events and sport team sponsorship will be conducted by us.
- Unique local sports memorabilia will be offered for sale at our location.
- Bubba’s, from 100.7 Star, years of experience in operating restaurant which include two other locations.
- An established network of talented, passionate restaurant professionals who are extremely excited to be a part of this project.
- Free ample parking for patrons
- Significant benefits of working with the new owners of the Iceoplex complex.
- Outdoor patio and bar area for nice weather days and in support of summer volleyball leagues.
- Ability to cater all in house events and local businesses.

100% of funds raised (minus fees for Kickstarter ~10%) will go directly to supporting opening this restaurant. No one is being paid a commission or a salary.

Through Kickstarter, YOU DECIDE, not the banks, and that is exactly how we want it.

The initial goal is set low because Kickstarter is an all or nothing site. If we meet our goal then we get the funding but we still would like to encourage you to continue to fund the effort so that we can bring you the best opening experience that our funding allows us to do.
