Hire Chef Jason for your next event 🔥

Hey! We’re the Bourgoins

We’re the kind of people who start a new business smack-dab in the middle of a global pandemic. 

Yup. We’re kinda crazy. 

Charboyz started as monthly BBQ Box. I’d love to tell you that we launched Charboyz because we were downright obsessed with BBQ, but I’d be lying...

Now don’t get me wrong. We LOVE to grill, but launching a BBQ Box business in the middle of a pandemic wasn’t our original plan. It was more of a Hail Mary.

You see... Jason is a Red-Seal Chef. He’d worked in 5-diamond restaurants around the world and even founded his own Fish & Chip franchise. But after a few painful setbacks and gut-punches, at 36 years young, Jason decided it was time for a career change.

He traded in busy kitchens and 80-hour workweeks for hard hats and Powerpoint presentations. In other words, became a Workplace Safety Officer & Trainer. His goal was to get a job in the oil & gas industry—and in 2019, he finally got his big break. But, as I’m sure you’ve already guessed, it was short-lived.

Like millions of people around the world, coronavirus struck and suddenly Jason found himself jobless.

He spent his days searching job boards and his nights playing in the kitchen. He should have been devastated when he lost his big paying job, but something weird happened… he actually felt relieved.

It took 7 years and a global pandemic for Jason to admit what he’d secretly always known—he is happiest when he’s in the kitchen.

So we started brainstorming—how could Jason get back into cooking?

Now keep in mind… the world was in quarantine. 

Starting a restaurant wasn’t exactly an option, so we decided to do the second-best thing—we’d deliver chef-inspired food directly to our customers’ doorsteps.

Jason wanted people to feel the joy he felt when cooking

He wanted to help them to make epic meals that would wow their family and friends and delight their tastebuds.

We launched Charboyz in May 2020 and it’s been a rollercoaster. What started as a dream to deliver ready-to-grill BBQ has grown into a full-blown movement for Meat Lovers.

Today Charboyz delivers monthly meal boxes focused on Epic Meats—or as we like to say, we deliver happy food.

We’re making mistakes and learning as we go...

We’ve had our share of sleepless nights

And I'm sure there will be more tough times to come. We're working harder than we've ever worked, but Jason has also never been happier.

No matter what the world throws your way just remember... it's never too late to chase your dreams.

Thank you for supporting ours!

Katelyn & Jason Bourgoin
