Baja Fresh Parent Company Ends Use of Gestation Crates

Fresh Enterprises, LLC, owner of the Baja Fresh, La Salsa Mexican Grill, and Canyon’s Burger restaurant concepts, announced that it supports industry efforts to move away from gestation crates, and is committed to purchasing pork only from suppliers with documented plans to end their use of gestation crates. The three restaurant chains combined have 279 locations worldwide.

A Cultural Difference

Well-prepared food by itself has never been enough to propel a fast food name to stardom. Today more than ever, a recognized personality and set of beliefs and customs is essential to set successful quick serves apart from the competition, according to industry experts and top management.

“Culture is being able to stop anyone who works in the company, ask them what the company is about, and get the same answer,” says Mathew Mabel, a Dallas-based management consultant specializing in the hospitality industry.
