The brand opened an impressive 37 locations in 2022 and signed 22 franchise agreements, a testament to the strategic expansion efforts of the concept. Bubbakoo’s Burritos has already demonstrated notable initiative in its strategy for 2023, and has opened four locations in the first few months of the year, one of which was its 100th location in Orange, CT.
