American Restaurant Holdings Inc., owner and operator of fast-casual restaurant brands in 13 states, announced its Muscle Maker Grill and Fresca's Mexican Grill concepts have entered into a partnership with Angels Baseball. The partnership, which officially begins on Saturday, April 2, will run through 2018.

Muscle Maker Grill, the rapidly expanding restaurant brand, which promotes a healthy lifestyle by offering nutritious alternatives to traditional dishes, and Fresca’s Mexican Grill, providing fresh and authentic favorites, will be in the 45,493-seat stadium offering guests healthier food options and flavorful Mexican fare on the terrace level of the Right Field Pavilion area.

“We are extremely proud to announce this new partnership with Angels Baseball,” says Tim M. Betts, chairman and CEO of American Restaurant Holdings Inc., parent company of Muscle Maker Inc. and Fresca’s Mexican Grill. “Stadiums are a great vehicle for our brands, as we’ve learned as a result of our Muscle Maker Grill partnership with MetLife Stadium—the No. 1 grossing sports venue in the world. We are excited to work with this great new partner and look forward to serving Angels fans for years to come.”

Muscle Maker Grill options at Angel Stadium include its Signature Wrap: all-natural grilled chicken breast, turkey bacon, reduced-fat Cheddar cheese, romaine lettuce, tomatoes, and onions with its zero-carb signature sauce, which will also be offered as a grab and go item in Angels Corner Market; the Arizona—all-natural grilled chicken breast and turkey bacon over brown rice with tomatoes and scallions served with its zero-carb signature sauce (also available as a wrap); and its famous Turkey Chili: made with lean ground turkey, red beans, reduced-fat Cheddar cheese, salsa, and fat-free sour cream served over brown rice—guaranteed to warm up fans when a chill is in the air. Fresca’s menu includes Mucho Nachos: a pile of fresh-made corn chips, covered with melted cheese, topped with Salsa Fresca, guacamole, sour cream, jalapeños with choice of charbroiled chicken or steak; Three Street Tacos—available with chicken or steak and topped with cilantro, onions, and salsa; and its Killer B Burrito—a warm 12-inch flour tortilla filled with rice, black beans, sour cream, guacamole, Salsa Fresca with a choice of charbroiled chicken or steak.

As a special offer to fans, the restaurants will offer all home game ticketholders one free Muscle Maker Grill wrap (side not included) or one Fresca’s taco if the Angels score ten runs or more in one game (offer valid with ticket stub up to two days following the game at its Santa Ana and Irvine Muscle Maker Grill locations, tentatively scheduled to open in April in the City Place Shopping Center and Jamboree Promenade Shopping Center, and at the currently open Orange County Fresca’s locations in Anaheim, Brea, Costa Mesa, Huntington Beach, and Tustin, California).
