Putting Food on the Table: Canadian QSR Gives Back with Its 50th Location

50th Store

BarBurrito celebrates its 50th store opening by donating to local food bank, Knights Table.

“The popularity of our cuisine and the success of our franchisees, has allowed us to expand aggressively, with a focus on growth and giving back for the foreseeable future.”

BarBurrito Restaurants Inc., a Canadian quick service restaurant chain specializing in quality Mexican fare, is celebrating its 50th franchised location with the opening of a store inside the Bramalea City Centre food court on November 1st, 2017. For every Burrito sold during opening week (11/01 – 11/08), BarBurrito will donate 50 cents to the Knights Table, a local Brampton food bank that provides hot meals and additional services to members of the community who are facing issues of hunger, poverty, and homelessness.

Alex Shtein, President, BarBurrito Restaurants Inc. stated: “BarBurrito was founded on one simple idea – to serve our neighbours, families and friends quality Mexican fare that could be savored and appreciated. With the opening of the 50th BarBurrito location, we would like to take this opportunity to give back to those same neighbours that helped us get this far.”

Some of the first BarBurrito locations opened in The Region of Peel, 6 years ago. Jean Solorzano, Franchisee, remembers: “It feels like yesterday that we opened the 3rd BarBurrito down at 40 Bristol Road in Mississauga and then the 6th just outside Bramalea Mall not too long after that. We are very grateful and happy to show our appreciation within areas of the community that need it most.”

Jean is just one example of the many hardworking franchisees that strive to roll up the best burritos, quesadillas and tacos that their respective communities have ever tasted. “The popularity of our cuisine and the success of our franchisees, has allowed us to expand aggressively, with a focus on growth and giving back for the foreseeable future,” said Sameer Lalji, Director of Operations.

About the Author: Carrie Brunner

Carrie Brunner grew up in a small town in northern New Brunswick. She studied chemistry in college, graduated, and married her husband one month later. They were then blessed with two baby boys within the first four years of marriage. Having babies gave their family a desire to return to the old paths – to nourish their family with traditional, homegrown foods; rid their home of toxic chemicals and petroleum products; and give their boys a chance to know a simple, sustainable way of life. They are currently building a homestead from scratch on two little acres in central Texas. There’s a lot to be done to become somewhat self-sufficient, but they are debt-free and get to spend their days living this simple, good life together with their five young children. Carrie writes mostly on provincial stories.
