Tifton’s first Barberitos Southwestern Grille & Cantina® restaurant will open to the public Feb. 29 at 1026 West Second Street.
Not only will this be Tifton’s first location for the well-loved burrito brand, this location marks the first drive-thru store for Barberitos as a company.
Bryce Kennedy Jr. and Bryce Kennedy III, owners of the Tifton location and longtime community residents, take credit for bringing the franchise to their town.
“We take pride in the quality of our fresh ingredients and homemade recipes,” said Downing Barber, founder of Barberitos. “More than that, we want to be known as a business that is serving the community here in Tifton. Our goal is to make an impact that goes beyond the burrito line and impacts local schools and organizations already making a difference in the area. Given the Kennedy’s history and passion for the community, we’re very very excited about the impact Barberitos will have in Tifton.”
Known for serving only the freshest and best tasting made-to-order burritos, tacos, quesadillas, nachos and salads, the 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.
“We are thrilled to bring Barberitos’ authentic Southwestern flavor to Tifton. This is our home and we looks forward to providing a new dining option,” said Kennedy III.
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.
