Barberitos: Bigger Than a Burrito, “Changing the world one burrito at a time”

For the past 14 years, Barberitos has been home to “Big Burritos” and “Farm Fresh Ingredients.” These well-known monikers have helped the popularity of the brand to grow immensely. The franchise has expanded from one Downtown Athens, GA location into 56 franchised locations to date and 14 more signed to open in the near future. While the big burritos and farm fresh ingredients will always be apart of Barberitos, the Southwestern franchise is ready to share what the culture of Barberitos is really about. Many may wonder what sets Barberitos apart from other Southwestern quick serve restaurants in the industry. Though the made in-house daily salsas, chips, and proteins may play an instrumental part in differentiating the establishments, the franchise likes to think the biggest difference is that all franchised locations are locally owned and operated. Barberitos believes that being locally owned helps create ties and make an impact on each individual community. Every month, all Barberitos locations strive to live “Bigger Than a Burrito.” Bigger than a Burrito is what the franchise likes to call it’s community involvement and spontaneous random acts of kindness. This initiative is meant to show that the Barberitos culture is more than just about making burritos, but it is also about giving back. Each Barberitos host percentage nights throughout the month to help raise money for local organizations, schools, or others who are in need. Food donations, sponsorships, and cash donations are additional ways that Barberitos owners try to give back to the community. Barberitos makes it a point to invest in the community, but in the people of its community, as well. Many Barberitos owners have made it a priority to offer local jobs to their area. The franchise believes strongly in the investment and development of the younger generation; Barberitos provides an after school environment for kids to learn and grow their skills beyond the classroom. Food preparation, interpersonal communication, management, and relationship building skills are a few of the things an individual will become experienced in at Barberitos. When an individual dines at Barberitos, they are not only benefiting the local establishment, but also the local community as well. Each burrito sold helps give back to the people, organizations, and schools of each local area. At the end of the day can a burrito change the world? Barberitos thinks it can, one burrito at a time.

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.
