Boon was imagined and cultivated by Tomas & Anneen who met while travelling the world, and sprouted in 2010 in Winnipeg, Canada. The word ‘boon’ means bean in Afrikaans (South African language), Anneen’s birthplace. It also means a blessing, a benefit or something to be thankful for in English.
We believe that plant-based is simply better! It was important for us to create a place that offered 100% cruelty-free food to feed both body and soul! Our goal is to offer all of the amazing comfort foods you would expect to find in a traditional burger joint, but healthier!
For the environment too
Sustainability is one of Boon’s core missions. You won’t find garbage bags in the waste center at Boon. No plastics either. All of our takeout cups and straws are made from biodegradable cornstarch. Other than some packaging that we receive, all waste in our restaurants is compostable or recyclable.
Process – not Processed
Food with integrity. We source the best ingredients possible and prepare them by hand – Most of our food is made fresh in our local commissary kitchens & prepared in-house every morning!
Why all the animal pics?
We love all the animals! As our staff love to say: “Friends, not food”
