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

Ole! Barberitos serves up wide range of spicy choices

Aug 5, 2010

Cozy setting adds to experience at Habersham Village Barberitos has brought a cheery and comfortable atmosphere to a corner of Habersham Village, along with a detailed and delicious Southwestern menu that will satisfy the most demanding appetites at a reasonable cost. My wife and I dropped in on a recent weekday evening, and, after waiting for a few minutes for a decision-challenged customer to make up her mind, took our first look at the wall-mounted menu ourselves. We quickly understood her dilemma: There’s a lot to consider. I eventually settled on the Super Vegetarian Burrito ($5.89) in a spinach tortilla. (The other tortilla choices are flour, wheat and chipotle.) It came tightly packed with rice, pinto beans, guacamole, salsa, black olives, sliced onions and chopped cucumber. Spicy, but not sweat-inducing, this burrito was quite filling. I cut it in half, and briefly thought I’d be taking the second portion home, but it was too good to stop. And, for those of us watching our weight and cholesterol levels, there are many other comparatively healthy choices, including a Guacamole Salad with spinach leaves. Shelly went with the Grilled Salad ($6.59) and filled the crisp taco shell with steak, lettuce, black beans, salsa, cheese, sour cream and ranch dressing. She was surprised and delighted with the freshness of the ingredients and the blend of flavors. “This is the best taco salad I’ve ever had,” she said, as she broke up the shell and dipped it in the cheese sauce. The dining room is bright, and its walls lined with colorful artwork and flat-screen televisions. We sat in one of the comfortable booths, which, because of their high backs, lend a feeling of privacy to the experience. Along with the $1.59 drinks — sweet tea for Shelly, lemonade for me — it was a delightful dining experience for less than $20. My sole complaint was the Cheese Dip ($1.99), which I found to be thin and bland. The chips, on the other hand, were warm, thin, crisp and flavorful. Next time I’ll try them with some of the choices at the salsa bar.
