Farmer Boys Grand Re-Opening Marks the Start of a New Partnership in the Loma Linda Community

LOMA LINDA  (  The local Loma Linda community is invited to join in the Grand Re-Opening celebration of the Farmer Boys Restaurant located at 10475 Mountain View Avenue this coming weekend. The Ribbon cutting ceremony will start at 4:00pm on Thursday, June 17th kicking off a weekend of fun-filled festivities!  The Grand Re-Opening is the beginning of a new relationship and commitment by the Farmer Boys Restaurant to be a proactive partner and supporter in the community. Jose Navarro, the restaurant manager, and Luis Lucero, one of Farmer Boys Area Operations Managers, are excited about their new resolve. They pledge to continue work with their Farmers Boys team in providing, not only great tasting food, but exceptional guest service which portrays an ‘eager-to-please’ attitude.

To make good on this new commitment, the Grand Re-Opening will be the start of several in-store events to raise funds for the Loma Linda University Children’s Hospital. The Loma Linda University Children’s Hospital is a world leader in Children’s Heart Transplants and a pioneer in life-saving procedures and comprehensive care of children nationwide.  “Any Fundraising we can do for this research-driven, healthcare university hospital is not enough. But, every little bit makes a difference, if they are to continue using innovative technology in their world-class clinical care and cutting edge research work,” said Ken Clark, the CEO of Farmer Boys Restaurants.

Farmer Boys, a restaurant icon known for its award-winning burgers, colossal onion rings and hand battered crispy zucchini, features over 75 freshly prepared items including many ‘made-to-order’ foods from farm fresh ingredients which are served all day long. Although burgers are the cornerstone of this Franchise chain, Farmer Boys Restaurants’ menu carries a wide range of delicious specialty sandwiches, wraps, salads and breakfast choices which compete with the Restaurants’ world-famous burgers for flavor, presentation, portion size and satisfaction.  Lucero explains; “Our commitment to our guest is to continuously serve them the highest in quality of food throughout all day parts, whether it is breakfast, lunch or dinner. We also want to deliver the most delicious burgers and food they have ever tasted. We want to be their Restaurant of Choice. We use the freshest and most flavorful ingredients available.” See for yourself, come and celebrate this Father’s Day Weekend at Farmers Boys and taste great food.

“We chose June 20th … ‘Father’s Day’ because we also want to celebrate Dads everywhere. We want all Dads to come, have fun, relax and enjoy a flame-broiled Cheeseburger with us. The smell of our farm fresh breakfast, lunch and/or dinner entrees cooking make our fast casual dining restaurant feel just like being home. We are cookin’ up just what he is craving,” said Navarro.  The newly renovated restaurant’s ambiance is aesthetically designed to encourage a relaxing, family-oriented feeling that goes well with the variety of ‘made-to-order,’ home-style cooking food offers.

Luis Lucero, Jose Navarro, and the entire team at Farmer Boys invite everyone to celebrate with them the beginning of a new community partnership. “Come taste great food and stay for the fun.” For information about Farmer Boys Restaurants, log on to .
