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

Message from Gretchen - Owner

The whole idea behind Beach Bucket is to partner with great  local businesses and use mobile technology to make life a little easier and a little more fun. 

So when your at the beach and hungry, treat yourself, your family and friends to something special. 

Beach Bucket Lunch - just one of my mom's great ideas.
