You have to respect Guy Fieri, the celebrity chef and mega-personality has become one of the leading voices and activists rallying our country up in support of the incredibly hurting restaurant industry.

Fieri has raised millions of dollars in grants and donations from major corporations throughout the pandemic, and has given that money back to the restaurant community across our nation. Now, he's come up with a concept that will expand his food offerings into 23 states, including 5 new locations announced here in Connecticut.

Guy Fieri's Flavortown Kitchen is a "ghost kitchen" which is a delivery/take-out only concept that will offer a limited menu of Guy's specialties. Most of the hundreds of these new restaurants in the 23 states across the US are going to be operating out of existing or empty restaurants and industrial kitchens.

Most of the Connecticut locations are going to be run out of Bertucci's. I took a look at the menu offerings, and there are some interesting choices: Buffalo Wings, Jalapeno Poppers, Queso and Chips, Burgers, Chicken, Salads, Desserts, and a few beverages.

After watching that and seeing all that he has done for the struggling industry that both he and I love, and opening up 5 new places here in Connecticut? Thank you Guy Fieri, for everything that you're doing.
