The Beginning

The story of Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. began in 1996, debuting on Cannery Row in Monterey, California, as the first and only (even to this day) casual restaurant chain based on a motion picture property. 

An American Classic

Capturing the magic that made "Forrest Gump" an American classic, Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. serves scratch-made, southern-style comfort dishes plucked straight off the silver screen – we’re talking sautéed shrimp, fried shrimp, coconut shrimp, shrimp scampi...(shall we go on?), alongside award-winning baby back ribs, burgers, salads and more in a fun and energetic atmosphere.

The Shrimpossibles is a grassroots organization of Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. that expands to every location nationwide. 

It’s comprised of restaurant employees who are eager to help their communities through volunteer work and fundraising at a local level. As a group, these employees are full of life, fun, and compassion. Their goals are to demonstrate care for their communities and to make a positive impact on the world through work on the Shrimpossibles team. Some of The Shrimpossibles’ efforts have included volunteering time and services to fight hunger, combat illiteracy, and support the Special Olympics through charity walks like Run Forrest Run 5ks and events such as Read Across America and Tip-A-Cop. 

We would love to be a part of your big event! Contact a location nearest you for more details.
