FREEBIRDS World Burrito Opens First Location in Kansas



FREEBIRDS World Burrito, the fast casual burrito joint with a rock ‘n’ roll attitude, announced today it will open in Mission, KS on Thursday, July 12. The Mission location is the first site for FB Midwest Development, LLC, the first franchisee of FREEBIRDS World Burrito. To celebrate the Grand Opening, FREEBIRDS will give the first 25 guests in line FREE burritos for a year!

FREEBIRDS is about awesome burritos (plus tacos, burrito bowls, salads, quesadillas, nachos, margaritas and more) and freedom of choice. As guests join the queue, they are partnered with a team member, known as a “Roller,” who helps them choose from four sizes of burrito made from four possible flavors of tortilla. Burritos are hand-rolled with the guest’s personal selection from more than 40 freshly prepared ingredients including grass fed beef, hormone-free chicken, or all natural slow roasted carnitas, hand cut veggies, homemade salsas including the signature Death Sauce and Bad *ss BBQ sauce, queso and guacamole. There are over 35 TRILLION combinations for a FREEBIRDS burrito. The restaurants have a free-spirited ambience with a rockin’ soundtrack, a Statue of Liberty riding a motorcycle busting through the wall (dubbed “Libby”) and inspiring quotes on the wall. It’s Not Normal!®
