Bolay Fresh Bold Kitchen, established in Florida, is holding a grand opening in Gainesville at 5035 Wellington Road on Thursday, Sept. 29, 2022. Its healthy, gluten-free, build-your-own ‘Bol’ concept of greens, grains and proteins is a signature item for the restaurant, while providing a fast, casual dining experience, and providing corporate and special event catering service as well. It’s noted for its global flavors of special spice blends, sauces, and menu items like forbidden black rice, spicy Thai shrimp, cilantro pesto noodles and balsamic mushrooms.

On Sept. 29, the first 100 guests on grand opening day will receive a free Bol each month for one year through the BolayGo App. During Bolay VIP Week, Sept. 29 to Oct. 3, 2022, guests will receive a free Bol when they present their registration ticket at the cash register to redeem.

The Bolay restaurant concept was founded by Bolay CEO Chris Gannon, son of Outback Steakhouse co-founder Tim Gannon.

Bolay of Gainesville is led by general manager Paul Paterno of Bristow, a former Hilton Hotel food and beverage director. Paterno, a Johnson and Wales University graduate, is passionate about good food and he enjoys using his cooking skills to host and cater for families and large groups. A native New Yorker, Paterno has lived in Northern Virginia for 20 years, where he’s raised his three daughters.

“I’m a veteran food and beverage guy, so food excites me, entertaining excites me; I think great tasting, quality food combined with good service can inspire and bring people together with a feeling of joy, that’s why I’m with Bolay,” said Paul Paterno. “The Gainesville/Haymarket community is a place where families come together to gather and reset; I’m looking forward to having Bolay be part of that experience and eager to create so many new, job opportunities for our area.”


In 2016, Outback Steakhouse co-founder Tim Gannon and his son Chris Gannon created Bolay Fresh Bold Kitchen, headquartered in Wellington, Florida. The build-your-own ‘Bol’ restaurant takes a customizable and modern, healthy approach to fast casual dining. The menu, designed by Michelin-star chef Robert Pugh, is noted for its nutritious all gluten-free menu of greens, grains, proteins, spice blends and sauces. Bolay has established 22 restaurants in Florida, and recently expanded to Falls Church and Gainesville, Virginia and Alpharetta, Georgia.
