B-CREK: for a healthy, natural and balanced diet
Our professional journey in the restaurant industry started 35 years ago. During these years we have gained knowledge (Escola d’Hostaleria i Escola de Turisme de Girona), we have become professionals working in business management and in hotel establishments and we have enriched our experience in the industry thanks to international trips and foreign contacts. After some time, our dream came true: B-CREK was born in Olot.
And later on...
All of this has been possible thanks to the passion and eagerness which we pour into what we do every day; into the innovation, into following the newest gastronomic trends; into the dedication and the involvement (we open 365 days a year with non-stop service), and above all, thanks to the professionalism of the team of people that are a part of B-CREK.
Where does the name B-CREK come from? Easy! Since everything started with sandwiches, we made an etymological and onomatopoeic mix: we took the B from the word “bocata” (sandwich in Catalan slang) and ‘CREK’ is the result of the sound that crispy bread makes when it is broken in half.
B-CREK was born with a clear and well-defined idea inside the sector: casual food, a new trend in food that is all about consumer’s awareness about the importance and necessity of a healthy diet. A sector where we could develop, transfer and strengthen our views on a cuisine that:
- Is healthy, natural and balanced
- Is simple and global
- Is respectful with the environment
- Has contemporary touches
- Uses local and good quality products
- Has an agile and friendly service
Quality and proximity
We use local and good quality products bought from trustworthy suppliers located as near to us as possible. We have a strong commitment with local producers, in order to give life to a menu with healthy and nutritious dishes.
Some of our suppliers are in the Compra a pagès guide, and others are local commerce producers. Consuming locally sourced products, we bring our way of eating to the area. We are aware of the fact that a healthy life starts with a good diet.
- Clean label bread
Some of our sandwiches are prepared with clean label bread, a distinctive label that guarantees that the ingredients that are used are 100% natural and free from additives.
- Responsible coffee and eco-friendly herbal tea
We support a responsible and sustainable coffee consumption (UTZ certificate), that is respectful with the environment, with the social commitment, and we support sustainable and high-quality trade.
We offer a wide range of organic teas and herbal teas.
- We use extra virgin olive oil to prepare our dishes
Sustainability and the environment
Our commitment to the area is reflected in our healthy and fair cuisine.
- Accreditation from the CETS since 2013, the European Charter for Sustainable Tourism.
- Commitment and respect for the environment.
- We support materials and products that have the minimum environmental impact on the area as possible.
- Electric vehicle charging point (B-CREK Solfa).
- Sustainable at home deliveries. We have electric vehicles that allow us to deliver without emissions.
At B-CREK we are charitable and we collaborate with entities from la Garrotxa that work on social integration and with entities that promote culture. We believe it is necessary to create social synergies that in turn will allow us to build a fairer, healthier and more cultivated society.
