Barberitos’ newest location will bring quick-service restaurant convenience to customers with inaugural drive-thru option

ATHENS, GA (Oct. 1, 2015) – Tifton’s first Barberitos Southwestern Grille & Cantina® restaurant will open in late November, at 1026 West Second Street.

Known for serving only the freshest and best tasting made-to-order burritos, tacos, quesadillas, nachos and salads, this Tifton location offers fresh food for customers seeking a healthier quick-service option. Indoor features include stack-stone accents and stainless steel finishes with unique interior décor reflecting the brand’s flavor.

Bryce Kennedy Jr. and Bryce Kennedy III, owners of the Tifton location, are to take credit for bringing the franchise to their town.

“We are thrilled to bring Barberitos’ authentic Southwestern flavor to Tifton. Locals will have a new dining option and we are introducing the very first drive-thru experience for Barberitos customers anywhere,” said Kennedy III. “We also look forward to establishing long-term relationships within the community, a top priority for Barberitos.”

Committed to serving “farm fresh” food, Barberitos serves all natural vegetables delivered to stores and hand-cut daily. The menu offers vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options along with chicken and steak chargrilled to perfection for protein lovers. 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.

Continuing its expansion throughout the Southeast, the Tifton location is the 27th in Georgia.
