About this project
It's time to revolutionize fast food
Does your burger really needs to have 25 grams of fat to taste good? Do your fries need to contain 19 grams of fat, 48g carbs, and 270mg of sodium? We have no choice; that is why we settle. Fast food is cheap, fast, and it tastes delicious. At goodbun we offer the best-tasting fast food that is good for your body as well. Just because our food is healthy, doesn't mean we are limiting you to salads, vegetables and soups. This is a 100% traditional "fast food” chain with an innovative twist. We sell burgers, fries, wraps, and snacks. The difference is in the way we prepare our food. We eliminate the need to deep-fry our potatoes and chicken fingers without sacrificing the pleasure of that crunchy bite. Our commitment is to give people the convenience of eating good without having to sacrifice their time, while maintaining an open transparent relationship with our customers.
The message behind goodbun is simple. We want to produce the highest quality food that is great for your body. This doesn't mean filling you up with a ton of vegetables, but rather providing you with great tasting food filled with nutrients that are good for you.
There is something amazing about having the ability to manipulate things in life. We are all given this ability no matter what our circumstances are. With goodbun, we decided to go up against the fast food conglomerates. While many people think it's impossible we have no reason as to why it's impossible. There are no limits to what we can do and we will do it.
We want to produce good food with great quality. We are sick and tired of having no other options to pick up a meal quickly and otherwise being stuck with the existing fast food options. We have been forced to eat their chemically enhanced food for decades, because there were no other choices.
All until now. We are a new generation, the type that says "no" to compromises. goodbun will be transparent from day one. This isn't "Hey I'm the government transparent". This is true transparency! We want our customers to know what we do behind doors--in fact we don't want to have any doors!
At goodbun, what you see is what you get! You see that sexy looking burger to the left? No make-up - simply all natural. goodbun does not believe in manipulating our food for a pretty picture just to say cheese.

Keeping with the trend that fast food hasn't been changed in over a 100 years, technologically, fast food has remained stagnant. goodbun is here to change the way you interact with your food. Whether its ordering for pickup at a specific time or just trying to figure out what type of exercise you need to do in order to burn the meal you just consumed.
The goodbun app is a free app whether you are a customer or not. We want to provide people with a powerful tool to manage the food they intake in the simplest way possible.
- Order from your mobile device
- Location based ordering: order ahead of time and we'll start to prepare your meal as you get closer, providing you with the freshest meal possible.
- Manage your nutrition intake and customize the amount of nutrients you want for that day, week or month.
- Choose between 100's of workouts that the app automatically recommends based on the meal you are eating.
- A REAL loyalty program. You take care of us, goodbun returns the favor.
- App automatically updates nutrition information and tracks purchases when you buy something delicious at a goodbun location using your goodbunID; no need to manually input anything, its all done in the background.
Sometimes the craziest most outrageous ideas are the ones worth fighting for. Whether this campaign to get goodbun up and running succeeds or not, it will prevail no matter what. We know that the possibilities introduced will have an impact on the lives of so many whether its through goodbun or our fast food competitors as we planted the seed for a better meal. Imagine a day where we all get back to eating good food. Virtually everything we eat nowadays is processed or artficially enhanced in some way. We want to change this! We want goodbun to be an outlet for people who want to consume real food. We hope to be an innovator in the fast food industry, completely reimagining the experience you get from going to a fast food establishment.
The days of eating a quick cheap meal then regretting it after are almost over. In fact it's so close that we can taste it (literally). goodbun will completely change the way we consume at fast food establishments.
As time passes and goodbun begins to gain ground, we will be able to lower our cost and introduce new menu items that appeal to every customer. Although not in a hurry, we also plan to introduce a higher end menu with items you would never expect to find at a fast food restaurant. Now we would love to share all of our future plans with you but that wouldn't be fun would it!
We have this huge opportunity in our hands, being able to change an aging industry and create something really powerful.
We will use the money pledged to refine our menu and try to make the nutrition even better for our bodies. We will also use the money to build a bigger team of individuals who's passion is to create amazing things. We are already working with local farms in order to produce the highest quality ingredients. The money pledged also applies to the technology behind goodbun. Believe it or not we see goodbun as more of a technology company not simply as a "food company". As soon as the funds are raised, we will immediately begin to work on enhancing the nutrition, finding the perfect location and start building the goodbun infrastructure. The goodbun app will be launch by September 2014 and the first ever goodbun location will launch on our 1 year kickstarter anniversary April 1, 2015.
Risks and challenges
When we first decided to pursue this endeavor we knew that we were about to embark on one of the most difficult and most rewarding experiences of our lives. We understand that the fast food business is controlled by conglomerates that have been around for way too long with out much of a challenge. Some of the biggest barriers we face are sourcing the right food thats good for you. We are also in the midst of putting together a world class team of chefs and nutritionists to ensure only the best ingredients are being used. We also plan to battle preservatives and artificial ingredients all while maintaining costs. The toughest thing is finding and putting together an amazing team of people ready for the challenge. Once we receive funding we will begin to put the puzzle pieces together to build goodbun.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
