BJ's Restaurants Cruelty

Is BJ's Restaurant & Brewhouse trying to profit from empty promises to its guests?

In 2016, BJ's Restaurant & Brewhouse made a promise to animals and customers that it would go 100% cage-free by 2025. It also committed to transition the majority of its egg supply to cage-free by 2020.

It's 2023, and BJ's has shown no real evidence of honoring its commitment on its website. It recently said that the majority of its eggs were cage-free. If so, where's the evidence of that?

In contrast to BJ's lack of proof, competitors like Chili's, TGI Fridays, Yardhouse, Applebee's, and more have been publicly transparent with their customers about their detailed progress reporting (or have fulfilled their cage-free promises).

Many of BJ's menu items, including the Pizookie, have eggs as ingredients. If the majority of BJ's eggs are indeed cage-free, then it shouldn't have a problem reporting that progress!

Join the movement for fighting corporate greed by holding BJ's accountable to the promise it made to end animal cruelty!

Why Cage-Free?


Egg-laying hens are forcefully shoved inside wire cages, and on average, each hen is only afforded as little as 67 square inches of cage space — less than a single sheet of letter-sized paper on which to live her entire life. This intense confinement is the main source for frustration, injuries, and in many cases death.


Foot and claw damage are more frequent in cages than in other systems, with lesions, fissures, and twisted or broken claws resulting from stepping on sharp wiring every day. Often, other body parts are caught in the caging, which results in fractured or broken bones, deformities, and further feather wear.

Mental Anguish

Like any animal, chickens are highly motivated to perform natural behaviors. These behaviors include nesting, perching, scratching, foraging, and exploring. Caged chickens are denied all of these natural behaviors, causing them severe distress and frustration.

Progress on the Issue

Many leading food companies are reporting on their progress toward being 100% cage-free, including these:
