BJ's in the Community

As a brand and business that interacts with thousands of people on a daily basis, we believe in being a part of our communities. We’re proud of the positive changes our staff and guests have made towards various foundations and our communities at large. After all, what better way is there to make sure your time counts?

BJ's Foundation

BJ'S AND ANIMAL WELFARE

At BJ’s Restaurants, our key values and culture include the genuine care and appreciation for our guests, team members, and the communities that support our restaurants. 
 
BJ’s also cares about the humane treatment of animals in our supply chain.  BJ’s will continue to encourage our suppliers to meet or exceed industry standards for the humane handling of animals and to constantly seek improvement in their animal welfare practices and policies.  BJ’s will include animal welfare standards in our purchasing contracts whenever applicable.  We will expect our suppliers to abide by all applicable laws and regulations in their animal welfare practices and policies. 
 
Our animal welfare policy is based on the best available science and in the context of good judgment and ethical behavior.  As the best available science and our increased understanding of the broad set of animal welfare issues evolve, we will update our animal welfare policy accordingly.  BJ’s will continue to listen to and take into consideration various points of view from our key constituencies, including our Guests, Team Members, shareholders, supplier partners, interest groups, government agencies, academia, the communities where we operate, and others, to further improve the effectiveness of our animal welfare policy going forward.
 
In response to evolving research on cage-free housing environments, and to consumers’ changing expectations and preferences, we have informed our egg suppliers of our expectation that they transition the majority of our egg supply to cage-free by 2020, and to fully transition to cage-free eggs by 2025. 
 
BJ’s is also committed to improving welfare standards of broiler chickens within the industry and is working with our suppliers toward a goal of ensuring that by 2024, chickens sourced for our restaurants meet the standards set forth by industry experts and animal welfare advocates including improvements to humane processing practices.
