FREEBIRDS World Burrito Opens in Temecula, California



FREEBIRDS World Burrito, the fast casual burrito joint with the rock ‘n’ roll attitude, announced today it will open in Temecula, California on Thursday, January 12, 2012. The Temecula location brings the California total to ten. 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, or all natural slow roasted carnitas topped with 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!®
