Freebirds Burrito Bowls Keep Resolutions in Check

FREEBIRDS World Burrito, the fast casual burrito joint with the rock 'n' roll attitude, encourages guests to keep their New Year's resolutions with its Burrito Bowls. A Freebirds Burrito Bowl has approximately 260 fewer calories and 44 fewer carbohydrates than a regular Freebirds Burrito.

Burrito Bowls are built just like a Freebirds Burrito, but without the tortilla. Bowls include a choice of grass fed steak, hormone-free chicken, or all natural, slow roasted pork carnitas, and are custom built with more than 40 freshly prepared ingredients such as black or pinto beans, roasted corn salsa, homemade guacamole, grilled jalapenos, and Bad A*s BBQ sauce, to name a few.

Burrito Bowls are served in a 100 percent biodegradable container made from sustainable bamboo and corn.

"When people eat a burrito bowl, they're cutting out the equivalent of a scoop of ice cream," says Freebirds President Jim Mizes. "We want people to know they can satisfy their Freebirds craving without feeling guilty."

For a limited time, Freebirds is offering its Fanatic loyalty cardholders Triple Stamp rewards on Burrito Bowls and Freedom Salads and Double Stamp rewards on all other entrees.
