Abuelo's Taqueria

The Fast-Casual Shift

While the entire restaurant industry has fared well in 2012, growth in the limited-service sector has outpaced full-service concepts, leading several of the latter to experiment with fast-casual concepts.

In August, Shoney’s launched its first Shoney’s On the Go in Houston; full-service Mexican concept Abuelo’s, meanwhile, will debut the fast-casual Abuelo’s Taqueria in Lubbock, Texas, this month.

Abuelo's Keeps it "Fast" Casual with Abuelo's Taqueria

In just a few months, Lubbock, Texas, will get its first taste of Abuelo's Mexican Restaurants' newest concept, Abuelo’s Taqueria, that will feature unique, fresh, handmade Mexican creations served in a contemporary, fast-casual environment.

The new concept is scheduled to open in late October at 19th Street and Quaker Avenue in Lubbock.
