Barberitos 0% Waste Initiative

(Athens, Ga.) Barberitos is excited to announce the current steps the franchise has taken in developing a 0% waste store and becoming more Eco-Friendly. Starting February 2014, all Barberitos locations began serving refreshments in new, clear polypropylene drink cups that are 100% recyclable. Studies have shown that the recycling of plastics help conserve energy and natural resources. Barberitos made the decision to switch from foam to plastic cups in an effort to become more green conscious and environmentally friendly. On April 22nd, in celebration of Earth Day, Barberitos is offering a free drink to all customers who bring in their recyclable Barberitos cup. As for paper, Barberitos uses 100% recycled brown napkins. They have also switched to compostable deli paper and recycled paper to go bags. Founder and CEO, Downing Barber, took the intiative even further by introducing composting in his Five Points location in Athens, GA. Composting has many benefits for the environment, the process helps reduce the amount of air pollution that occurs when disposing of organic scraps. Compost also improves air quality. A decrease in landfill space is the main reason for the introduction of composting into the store. The franchise has always supported the “Farm to Table” initiative and now would like to continue the cycle by returning the food waste back to the environment to grow new plants. Barberitos plans to introduce the first 0% waste restaurant in July 2014. They are also looking into more green ways to operate. Barberitos is a quick service restaurant offering fresh, made in-house food that is customized and made to order. Burritos, tacos, salads, quesadillas, and nachos are their specialties. Committed to serving “farm fresh” food, Barberitos serves all natural vegetables delivered to stores and hand-cut daily. Whole breasts of chicken are grilled fresh, as is the high quality cuts of steak, and choice ground beef. Barberitos restaurants are not equipped with microwaves, as all food is prepared fresh. Barberitos’ salsas, guacamole, hot sauces, meat marinades, salad dressings, rice, beans, char grilled meats, chips, and dips are made from scratch each day. Each menu offering is prepared at the time it is ordered right in front of the customer. Barberitos “7 Under 7” menu features seven items each under seven grams of fat including a mini grilled chicken burrito, jerk fish taco, and a variety of salads. Barberitos provides full-service catering ranging from burrito boxed lunches to taco, salad, nacho, or fajita bar that can be customized to serve a few to several hundred people. Barberitos has 52 signed restaurant locations, 37 of which are open for business in Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina and Tennessee, and Florida. For more information, visit www.Barberitos.com
