Tijuana Flats, the fast-casual Tex-Mex dining experience, is remodeling its Cary, North Carolina, location with its new “Amped Up” store model. The look, which is a unique version of Tijuana Flats’ “Flat Outrageous” brand, was first introduced in December 2016 at the restaurant chain’s Millennia location in Orlando, Florida. The remodeling will be unveiled during a grand re-opening on June 26.
Located at 151 S.E. Cary Pkwy. next to Trader Joe’s at Kildaire Farms Rd. and Cary Pkwy, the Cary store is the first Tijuana Flats restaurant to undergo a remodeling that will mirror the new “Amped Up” look. Improved amenities at the store will include new wall finishes (patina metal, durock, and corrugated metal are among the materials used), new furniture, a new service counter configuration that includes a beer fridge, specials screen and stainless shelving, and a new white ceiling grid with birch ceiling tiles that will compliment existing customer-painted tiles. Additionally, the patio will receive new furniture, string lights, and planters with ornamental glass.
“At Tijuana Flats, the look of our restaurants is just as important to our ‘Flat Outrageous’ brand as our menu,” says Adam Moore, Raleigh area supervisor at Tijuana Flats. “This remodeling just goes to prove that we are constantly pushing ourselves to be innovative in all aspects of our brand, from the hot sauce bar to the wall murals. The Triangle region in particular has been incredibly receptive to Tijuana Flats, and we can’t wait for our guests here to experience this ‘Amped Up’ style for themselves.”
