Barberitos Opens 29th Restaurant in Asheville, NC

Barberitos Franchising, Inc. announced the opening of its 29th restaurant location in Asheville, NC. The new store opened September 14, 2012.

New franchisees, Timm and Kate Phillips, from the High Point, NC area decided to open a Barberitos location in Asheville after frequenting the Barberitos in High Point. The new store is located at 1856 Hendersonville Rd., Asheville, NC in the Earth Fare Shopping Center. The Southwestern Grille offers alcoholic beverages, free wireless for customers, and outdoor seating. In addition, kids eat free (with the purchase of an adult entrée) on Mondays after 4 PM.

“We are excited to be bringing Barberitos’ healthy food and fun atmosphere to Asheville” said owner, Timm Phillips. “We’re glad to be joining the Barberitos team and are thrilled to finally have our doors open.”

Barberitos is a quick service restaurant offering fresh, Tex-Mex cuisine including a variety of burritos, tacos, salads, quesadillas and nachos made to order.

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 freezers or microwaves as all food is prepared fresh, with no fats or preservatives added at the time of preparation. Barberitos’ salsas, guacamole, hot sauces, meat marinades, and salad dressings 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 29 restaurant franchise locations in Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina and Tennessee, and Florida.
