The Area Developer holds the exclusive rights to establish three BURRITObar locations within the designated territory, starting with a flagship store in Cincinnati to showcase the brand.

Chief Development Officer, Jeff Young, expressed, “This agreement signifies a another important move forward in BURRITObar’s international expansion strategy, focusing on boosting our presence in the USA through our Master and Area Developer Franchise Model. This agreement adds to the over 500 stores under contract to open over the next 20 years.”

A lease has been finalized at Victory Station on 3921 Franklin Rd, Suite A, Murfreesboro, Tennessee. The site, boasting a 1,500 square foot end cap location with a Drive Thru, will be managed by GBrand, LLC.
