Bon Me Introduces Online Ordering
Bon Me is now available in Boston, Cambridge, and Chestnut Hill, thanks to a huge 2015 for the food truck-born company, and now the local chain is making it easier for fans to get their Vietnamese-inspired lunches. Online ordering debuted today at all five brick-and-mortar Bon Me locations, including inside the Boston Public Market.

“We’ve been thinking about online ordering for a while, as a way for our busy customers to avoid lines,” chef, founder and owner Ali Fong says.
Dunkin’ Donuts just rolled out a similar concept, for similar reasons, at select New England stores. But unlike the Dunkin’ VIP app, there’s no download necessary to order ahead of time from Bon Me, at least yet. Online ordering from Bon Me’s website is mobile accessible, though the company plans to develop a mobile app at some point, Fong says.
For now, online ordering isn’t available for customers of Bon Me’s fleet of food trucks. “We’d love to offer [that], but we’re going to see how it goes with our restaurants first before making any decision on that,” Fong says.
Each location’s full menu is available for online ordering, including the fried chicken, sweet potato fries, and other items exclusive to Bon Me’s Fresh Pond location, and drinks like Thai iced tea and spicy ginger lemonade. There’s no markup on the prices.
