FREEBIRDS World Burrito Opens in Ft. Worth, Texas, on Wednesday, May 2, 2012



FREEBIRDS World Burrito, the fast casual burrito joint with the rock ‘n’ roll attitude, announced today it will open at 2736 W. 7th St. near Montgomery Plaza on Wednesday, May 2, 2012. To celebrate, FREEBIRDS will give the first 25 guests in line free burritos for a year.

FREEBIRDS is about awesome burritos (plus burrito bowls, salads, nachos 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, all natural slow roasted carnitas, hand cut veggies, signature Death Sauce and Bad *ss BBQ, queso and guacamole.  The restaurants have a free-spirited ambience with a rockin’ soundtrack, reminiscent of a late-’60s rock ‘n’ roll roadhouse. It’s Not Normal!®
