The City of Menifee announced Bushfire Kitchen as its January Business Spotlight, a program that is a part of the Economic Development Department’s B3 (Building Better Businesses) program. Bushfire Kitchen arrived in Menifee as a key member of the local culinary scene in 2019.

Bushfire Kitchen was founded in 2012 by cousins Clive and Brandon Barwin. Clive brings his technical skills and knowledge of the business world as an entrepreneur to the table, while chef Brandon’s brings his expertise in flavors and classic food. The two now have a total of five locations.

Bushfire Kitchen offers redefined American comfort food classics that never use preservatives, food coloring, flavor enhancers, or GMOs. Almost everything is made from scratch and the ingredients used are locally produced when possible. The menu offers vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free options.

Bushfire Kitchen regularly supports Menifee’s local schools and nonprofit organizations, partners with the Menifee Valley Chamber of Commerce and business community, and runs in-store fundraisers and monthly events.

“Our residents and visitors alike benefit from Bushfire Kitchen’s commitment to high-quality libations and fresh, locally sourced ingredients for their delicious, healthy menu,” Economic Development Director Gina Gonzalez said. “We are thankful for their maverick spirit in providing a unique experience in Menifee and integrating themselves in the fabric of our community through ongoing outreach and partnership efforts.”

The City of Menifee Business Spotlight is a free business recognition program to create awareness for the variety of local businesses and their contributions to the Menifee community. Chosen applicants, who are nominated by the community, are honored during a special presentation at a city council meeting and receive a free 30-second professional video developed by the Economic Development Department showcased on the city’s business website.
