ATHENS, GA (June 29, 2020) – Barberitos, a fast-casual burrito restaurant wth 50 locations throughout the Southeast, has launched several initiatives to ‘Celebrate the Colors of Summer’ by serving its guests healthy, colorful food. Along with offering its farm-fresh ingredients, Barberitos is launching tie-dye shirts, offering vegan options and letting guests order David Pollack’s go-to meal all summer long.

“We always take pride in serving healthy, farm-fresh ingredients that we purchase from local farmers wherever possible,” said Barberitos Founder & CEO Downing Barber. “The warm weather is the perfect time to encourage people to eat fresh food and celebrate the ‘Colors of Summer.’”

The ‘Colors of Summer’ campaign includes:
