About Us


Behind the Bucket

I grew up in South Jersey and spent my summers in Ocean City with my family. I know beach time with family and friends is special. I wanted to provide a service that makes a day at the beach fun and easy, especially for parents.

You have to deal with traffic, find parking and lug your chairs and umbrella down the hot sand. So skip packing a cooler, we'll bring you lunch.

Relax-you deserve it!              -Gretchen Ritter, Owner


Locally Sourced Goodness

BBL is proud to partner with Blitz's Markets (Dave & Joan Newman) since the start. Voted best deli in OCNJ last summer, the crew at Blitz's serves up great hoagies and salads. Blitz's Markets are located at 34th & Asbury  and 21st & Asbury. Check out their full menu and catering options. 

Summer, 2017  will be the second year that we have partnered with Tuckahoe Cheese Cake Factory, providing an assortment of lightly-frozen slice of cheese cake on a stick. The raspberry swirl and key lime are insanely good.
