Joyous Adds Beloved Borikén Restaurant to its Platform

Beaverton, OR – Portland-Born Joyous has added another hometown favorite to its takeout and delivery platform: Borikén in Beaverton.

Borikén is known to residents of the Beaverton/Hillsboro/Portland area as an absolutely killer, authentic Puerto Rican restaurant. In fact, the restaurant’s name, Borikén, means the island of Puerto Rico in the native language of the island.

During tough economic times, Joyous is excited to bring its model of forever discounts for diners to another popular restaurant in the Beaverton area, where Joyous started several years ago!

Borikén officially joins the Joyous Platform for takeout and delivery orders on Monday, August 1st, 2022.


About Borikén:

The name Boriken is the island of Puerto Rico’s original name, which is in the Taino language. For a good introduction to Puerto Rican food, visit Boriken Restaurant today! We offer a great dining experience of Caribbean cuisine in relaxed surroundings. At Boriken Restaurant it’s the customer’s satisfaction that matters to us and we strive to never disappoint. We look forward to welcoming you. If you have any questions or require any assistance, please call us at 503-596-3571 or visit us at 12800 SW Canyon Rd, Beaverton, OR 97005.

We believe in serving you like you are part of our family. We have a small humble restaurant with only twelve tables to keep your experience authentic and enjoyable! Since we want you to taste the most authentic Puerto Rican food Oregon has to offer, we take our time preparing your meal, resulting in a longer than average wait time. The reason is that your meal is being cooked to order, with no food sitting around waiting to be reheated. We will only serve you the best! Please be patient with us if your food takes longer than you would expect, especially on busy days. Thank you for your understanding! We truly appreciate your business.

About Joyous:

Joyous was founded in 2013 by Vara Prasad, an Indian immigrant to the United States who worked his whole life in technology. After a long career in tech, including a successful acquisition by IBM and a long stint at IBM, Prasad put his life savings on the line to create a way for local, independent restaurants to thrive with the same tools that the big national chains have. Joyous is 100% bootstrapped, having taken no capital from professional investors at this time.

Since 2013, Joyous has built a platform that allows restaurants to offer many features including takeout, delivery, and contactless dine-in. Still, these robust features—on par with DoorDash, UberEats and Grubhub—are just a small part of the automated marketing engine that Joyous starts for each independent restaurant that joins its platform. Joyous also offers its services to restaurants at a steep discount compared to the national delivery companies while at the same time offering them more. Please see our Restaurant Information Site to learn more about what Joyous can offer restaurants.

Joyous is committed to connecting community and commerce by helping local restaurants thrive while helping diners save on great meals.
