FREEBIRDS Rolls Out New Restaurant
FREEBIRDS World Burrito, the fast casual burrito joint with a rock 'n' roll attitude, announced today it will open in Wichita, Kansas, on Thursday, June 20, 2013. The Wichita location is the sixth restaurant for FB Midwest Development, LLC, the first franchisee of FREEBIRDS World Burrito. To celebrate the grand opening, FREEBIRDS will give the first 25 guests in line FREE burritos for a year.
FREEBIRDS is about awesome burritos (plus tacos, burrito bowls, salads, quesadillas, nachos, margaritas, 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, homemade salsas including the signature Death Sauce and Bad *ss BBQ sauce, queso, and guacamole. There are over 35 trillion combinations at FREEBIRDS. The restaurants have a free-spirited ambience with a rockin' soundtrack, a Statue of Liberty riding a motorcycle busting through the wall (dubbed "Libby") and inspiring quotes on the wall.
FREEBIRDS and its charitable arm, World Works, will raise money on behalf of the Alzheimer's Association and American Lung Association in a charity event on June 18, 2013.
The new FREEBIRDS will employ approximately 60 team members from the local community. FREEBIRDS Overland Park is located at 410 N Hillside. The restaurant hours are Monday to Thursday 11:00 a.m to 10:00 p.m., Friday to Saturday, 11:00 a.m. to 10:30 p.m., and Sunday 11:00 a.m to 9:00 p.m.
