Barberitos Launches Social Media Contest

Barberitos Franchising has rolled out a social media contest where fans register to win a $500 Barberitos gift certificate along with other healthy prizes that include an iPod Shuffle and a Nike gift certificate, among others. 

These prizes go along with the Barberitos “Get Fit & Get Healthy” campaign that was inspired by Jay Lowe, a devoted Barberitos customer who lost 70 pounds with the help of Barberitos’ farm-fresh burritos and other healthy options.

The contest will continue to run through the month of October.

Barberitos is a quick-service restaurant offering fresh, Tex-Mex cuisine including a variety of burritos, tacos, salads, quesadillas, and nachos made to order.

Committed to serving “farm fresh” food, Barberitos serves all-natural vegetables delivered to stores and hand-cut daily. Whole breasts of chicken are grilled fresh, as are the high-quality cuts of steak and choice ground beef.  

Barberitos restaurants are not equipped with freezers or microwaves, as all food is prepared fresh, with no fats or preservatives added at the time of preparation. Barberitos’ salsas, guacamole, hot sauces, meat marinades, and salad dressings are made from scratch each day.

Each menu offering is prepared at the time it is ordered right in front of the customer. Barberitos “7 Under 7” menu features seven items each under 7 grams of fat, including a mini grilled chicken burrito, jerk fish taco, and a variety of salads.

Barberitos provides full-service catering ranging from burrito boxed lunches to taco, salad, nacho, or fajita bars that can be customized to serve a few to several hundred people.  

Barberitos has 29 restaurant franchise locations in Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolinaa, Tennessee, and Florida.
