Bar Pizza & Salad Co.


2020 was a difficult year, and we all saw our families, friends and communities tested. Time felt like it stood still. Unpredictable work and life change hit us all. Long-standing routines and traditions were impacted, in some cases forever. With change sometimes comes new perspective, however, and so it was in the depths of 2020 that Bar Pizza & Salad Co. was born. Our families grew up on Bar Pizza, with roots in Brockton, Easton and the surrounding areas – and once we had the idea we couldn’t shake it. So, it is our hope that with this restaurant we’re able to support our community and establish new and enduring traditions in the face of change. From the Bar Pizza & Salad Co. family to yours, welcome and thank you!

Novatos Bar and Grill's passion goes beyond serving great food to their customers. When Jennifer and Alex Lima were presented with the opportunity to run their own restaurant, Jennifer had only one request before agreeing to take on the new business adventure.

“I’ve always wanted to help people,” she said. “I know that running a restaurant can be stressful but it can also be used as a resource to help people.”

Better Grains Gluten Free Bakery

“Thank you to Mansfield Farms Fresh Market for providing my small business this opportunity to expand here in our community and all other future S.I.F.R.G. endorsed local markets.

When diagnosed celiac nine years ago, I made it my goal to open a bakery and develop gluten free recipes that no one could tell were gluten free. Better Grains is my very own dedicated gluten free bakery that is allergen friendly and safe for celiacs.  My passion is to make delicious food that even someone who doesn’t need to eat gluten free will enjoy.  

I am beyond excited to be part of S.I.F.R.G. and look forward to growing my business throughout New England.

Alskinny Bros.

We’re a small family-owned business and we’re very excited for the opportunity to partner with Mansfield Farms Fresh Market which is our first grocery retailer. We thank them for giving us a chance to grow and build our brand.
