b.good, a healthier fast casual restaurant, with three locations in the Philadelphia region, will hold a Community Day celebration at its new Mt Laurel location on Sunday, April 10.

The festivities will take place from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. at the newest b.good location in Centerton Square, 26 Centerton Road, in Mt. Laurel, New Jersey.
b.good is known for its unconventional promotions and the fanatical devotion it engenders from fans, who are called "family" members. With every new restaurant opening, b.good launches a Cousin Oliver Contest. This contest is named "Cousin Oliver" for the Brady Bunch character who was taken in by the Brady family. Just like Oliver, b.good in in Mt. Laurel is looking for someone to take them in and love them like family in their new neighborhood.

Tell your story with words, video, photo art or whatever moves you. Entries can be submitted from March 21 through April 4 at 5 p.m. Voting for finalists begins on April 5 and the winner will be announced at Community Day on April 10.
Also on April 10, b.good will offer complete meals for $7, half of which will be donated to Sunday Suppers, a local non-profit organization that strives to strengthen the health and well-being of families through the transformative power of family meals. The complete meal includes a sandwich or salad, fries and drink (or kale and grain bowl and drink) for $7. Other highlights of Community Day include music, food samples, local vendors and a prize wheel.
b.good specializes in house-ground burgers, kale, and grain bowls, home-made veggie burgers, seasonal salads, fresh fruit/vegetable smoothies, and hand-cut fries-from local farms and producers. The Mt. Laurel b.good also serves as a catering hub for South Jersey, preparing food for office lunches, birthday parties, pharmaceutical representatives, bar/bat mitzvah parties and other occasions.
"I believe the community has welcomed b.good so whole-heartedly because we offer a fast, but healthier, alternative for people with a busy lifestyle who care about what they eat," said Deb Lutz, local owner. "Plus most of our ingredients are locally-sourced, we offer many gluten-free and vegan options and our restaurants are peanut-free. This is a chance for us to give back to the community - part of our mission at all of our restaurants."
The Mt. Laurel location, which seats 66, is the third in the Philadelphia area. The first opened mid-2014 in the Promenade in Marlton, New Jersey and the second in Wynnewood Square Shopping Center in Wynnewood, PA.

Lutz saw the appeal of the concept and bought the exclusive rights to franchise b.good in the Philadelphia area.The Marlton b.good opened by Lutz was its 16th location, Wynnewood its 24th location and Mt. Laurel its 34th.
