June 17, 2016 // // FRIDLEY, Minn. - Pancheros Mexican Grill (, a fast casual Mexican chain known for its delicious, better-built burritos, announces the opening of its latest Minnesota location on Tuesday, June 21 in Fridley. Bob Thomson, existing franchise partner of Pancheros in Bloomington and Golden Valley, will commemorate his third location with a $1 burrito event on Tuesday, June 28 from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. As a 90-year-old entrepreneur with decades of success in the franchise world, Thomson and his business associates plan to bring the Pancheros experience to 17 locations throughout the Twin Cities market. 

Pancheros’ menu offers flavor-packed selections that range from custom-built burritos to mouth-watering quesadillas.
