Barberitos Raises Funds For Breast Cancer Awareness

Barberitos Stores Across the Southeast Promote Pink Chips, Give 10 Percent of Sales to Breast Cancer Organizations

ATHENS, GA—(Sept. 25, 2015)—Barberitos Southwestern Grille & Cantina will host a Breast Cancer Awareness Percentage Day on Thursday, October 1 to kick off its Chip-ping In For The Cure campaign in participating store locations across the Southeast. Ten percent of all sales on Oct. 1 will be donated to the local breast cancer organization of each store’s choosing, and pink chips will be served.

We care deeply for our customers, which is why food quality is our first priority. But Barberitos is bigger than the burrito,” said Downing Barber, founder of Barberitos. “The Chip-ping In For The Cure campaign is one of my favorite things we do to care for the individuals in our communities. We all know someone who has been affected by breast cancer and every dollar counts toward making a difference in the lives of the moms, grandmas, aunts, sisters and daughters who make our communities such great places to live.”

Barberitos is a fast casual restaurant serving authentic Southwestern, farm-fresh cuisine including made-to-order burritos, tacos, quesadillas, nachos and salads. Premium-grade vegetables are delivered to stores and chopped daily. The menu offers vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options along with chicken and steak chargrilled to perfection. Barberitos restaurants are not equipped with freezers or microwaves as all food is prepared fresh, with no fats or preservatives added at the time of preparation. Barberitos’ salsas, guacamole, hot sauces, meat marinades, and salad dressings are made from scratch each day.

Full-service catering is also available ranging from boxed lunches to taco, nacho, salad or fajita bars that can be customized to serve a few to several hundred people.
