About: Family-friendly chain for seafood & American fare served in a fishing-boat-themed setting; the Bubba Gump Shrimp Company Restaurant and Market is an American seafood restaurant chain inspired by the 1994 film Forrest Gump. As of July 2015, forty Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. restaurants operate worldwide. Twenty-nine of these locations are in the United States, four are in Mexico, three are in Malaysia, and one each in London, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, the Marianas and the Philippines. The company is based in Houston, Texas, and has been a division of Landry’s Restaurants since 2010.
The first Bubba Gump restaurant opened in 1996 in Monterey, California by Rusty Pelican Restaurants in partnership with Viacom. Viacom is owner of Paramount Pictures, the distributor of Forrest Gump. The Bubba Gump restaurant is named after the film’s characters Benjamin Buford “Bubba” Blue and Forrest Gump. In the film, Bubba suggested getting in the shrimping business and, ultimately, Forrest pursued the idea after Bubba’s death in the Vietnam War.
