Bob was raised on a farm outside of Lynden, WA. While flipping burgers at a local drive-in Bob discovered he had a great passion for the food industry. After a few years of hard work Bob bought his first restaurant, The Ronde-Voo Drive In, in Lynden, WA at the age of 25. A few years later he purchased Bunk's Drive-In, in Bellingham, WA.
He wanted to have a successful, casual dining restaurant with outstanding food and burgers everyone loved. In 1982 Bob's Burgers & Brew was founded. With the motto 'Only the Best' Bob set out to offer his guests an experience they wouldn't forget, quality food, generous portions, and great service at an affordable price. Lynden Bob's quickly became a local success. Over the years, Bob and his family have continued to open restaurants throughout Washington.
The company continues to be led by Bob with his commitment to quality, value and passion for excellence. He delights in the opening of new restaurants and taking an active role in many different areas. He continues to inspire by advocating hard work, emphasizing education and giving support in pursuing dreams. . . just as he has done!
