Family Fun Rewind 2023: Recap of Border Foods’ Multi-State Summer Celebration


At Border Foods, we’re serious about summer fun — for one grand day, we really make it happen for our managers and their families. And we look forward to it! Our annual Family Fun Days are part of the contagious Live Más spirit! 

This year’s series of Border Foods get-togethers, from Minnesota to Michigan and beyond, kicked off at Valleyfair in July. From there we hit up other amusement parks in the region, a state fair and even a boat cruise. 

What’s all the Hype about Family Fun?

Family Fun Days are a beloved company tradition that allow us the chance to bring together RGMs and GMs from neighboring locations for paid time off and good ‘ol fashioned family fun. It’s one of our absolute favorite ways to give back to our devoted restaurant leaders and their families.

Need proof that we do this every year? Check out last year’s gallery!


One of the most important aspects of these bonding events is our surprise scholarship announcements. This year, we gave checks to eight recipients. Congratulations to our 2023 Carol Williams and Border Foods scholarship winners!
