About Bubba Gump

The Bubba Gump Shrimp Company has transformed from fiction to fact. The company appeared in the Academy Award-winning 1994 film "Forrest Gump" before it existed in real life. In the movie, Forrest sets up a shrimping business to honor the memory of his dear friend, Bubba. After the movie took the U.S. by storm, Paramount Pictures launched a seafood restaurant chain inspired by the movie. The Bubba Gump Shrimp Company is as much of a hit as the movie that inspired it, and it operates locations around the world. Whether you are a fan of "Forrest Gump" or love Bubba Gump's shrimp dishes, the company also produces a wide range of merchandise with its name and logo, including Bubba Gump shirts, hats, glasses, and cookbooks. Sellers on eBay offer a huge selection of memorabilia, allowing you purchase Bubba Gump hats, keychains, and glassware even if you do not live nearby a restaurant location.
