BJ’s sponsors and participates in a number of charitable programs benefitting children’s healthcare and education. From charity golf tournaments to in-restaurant events, BJ’s gives back to the communities where we do business.
Cookies 4 Kids
The Cookies 4 Kids program donates a portion of all Pizookie® dessert sales to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, BJ’s primary charity organization. The signature Pizookie is a freshly baked, hot-out-of-the-oven cookie (chocolate chunk, white chocolate macadamia nut, oatmeal raisin, peanut butter or Oreo cookie), which is topped with two scoops of vanilla bean ice cream and served hot, and cold, to the table. It has become a favorite for thousands of BJ's guests and a wonderful fundraising campaign for our charity.
New Restaurant Openings
On behalf of new BJ’s Restaurants, the Foundation invites guests from nearby communities and the local chamber of commerce to attend our charity and training events that take place the week before the grand opening day. This gives our newly trained teams the chance to put their final touches on proper food preparation and service. Thanks entirely to the generosity of the guests attending these pre-opening parties we're very proud to have made significant contributions to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation from our new restaurant openings across the country.
