In 1982, Brenda and Gregory J. Hamer, Sr. created B&G Food Enterprises, LLC when they received a franchise from Taco Bell to operate a restaurant in Morgan City, Louisiana. Today, B&G operates over 150 restaurants in Louisiana, Mississippi, and Texas. B&G is the largest Taco Bell Franchisee in Louisiana and maintain our Corporate Headquarters in Morgan City, Louisiana.
In 1997, Brenda and Greg received their first KFC franchise. We acquired our first Long John Silver’s in 2011. Today, B&G is a franchise of Taco Bell, KFC, and Long John Silver’s.
Brenda and Greg began their partnership as juniors at Morgan City High School, and they were married in 1967, while Greg was still attending LSU.
Brenda is not only the Corporate Secretary of B&G, but she is also the center point of the family. Nothing delights her more than spending time with her three children and her nine grandchildren.
Greg Sr. is the CEO of B&G and prior to going full time into B&G was active in the oilfield service industry for over 20 years prior to going full time into B&G.
B&G has grown to provide a livelihood for well over 3000 employees, without whom our success could not have been achieved. Our biggest blessing has been that the success of B&G has enabled all of our children and their spouses to be active in the business which has kept our family close.
B&G is a family business, and we strive every day to treat all of our employees as we would want to be treated.
