Austin, Texas - January 22, 2014 – Bullritos is pleased to announce the grand opening of their newest store in Austin, Texas, located at 9828 Great Hills Trail. The store opened for family and friends on Jan. 20, but the official opening of the store will be at 11 a.m. on Feb. 1. Bullritos will host their traditional "unbelievaBULL" giveaway offering a free burrito every week for an entire year to the first 25 people in line. There will be other prizes and activities for other attendees at the grand opening event.
Allen Shindler, Bullritos franchisee and a graduate of the University of Texas, said he is very excited to open the store in such a great city.
"We have a great team and a great product," Shindler said. "We love Austin, we love the environment, and we are very excited to be back in Austin opening our new restaurant venture."
Bullritos has 19 stores in Texas, but this is the first Austin location.
"We're branching out, and I think it's a good fit for Bullritos," said Mark Collins, senior vice president of Bullritos Acquisition Group. " I think our concept will work really well in Austin."
Bullritos plans to open a store in Katy, Texas and another Lafayette, Louisiana location this spring.
