Why doesn’t Alabama have a Bubba Gump Shrimp Co?
What's more Alabama than shrimp and Forrest Gump? Probably nothing, but why don't we have a Bubba Gump Shirmp Co?
Let me tell you the story of Bubba Gump Shrimp Co:
Former Crimson Tide Returner and Marine meet each other at basic training. One of the men had a life long dream to be a shrimp boat capt. Unfortunately, that man lost his life in Nam. So his friend carried on his friends life dream to make it happen.
But here is the quicky of what actually Bubba Gump is according to their own website.
THE FIRST BUBBA GUMP SHRIMP CO. RESTAURANT AND MARKET OPENED IN 1996 ON CANNERY ROW IN MONTEREY, CALIFORNIA. WE'VE SINCE GROWN TO INCLUDE MANY NOTABLE Locations THROUGHOUT THE UNITED STATES AND INTERNATIONALLY.
AT THE CORE, WE ARE A SMALL CHAIN OF SEAFOOD RESTAURANTS COMMITTED TO PROVIDING A CASUAL ENVIRONMENT WHERE EVERYONE CAN ENJOY A GREAT MEAL AND HAVE SOME FUN TOO.

But my question is this, who the hell don't we have a Bubba Gump?
