Barberitos Franchising, Inc.

Behind every great restaurant are great philosophies. Downing Barber discovered southwestern cuisine while traveling throughout Colorado and the southwest. He came across a burrito restaurant that used fresh ingredients and made food right in front of the customers. The restaurant was packed, and he knew it was a concept that would be successful in his home state of Georgia. Today, more than 20 thriving restaurants in four states have proven him right.

You’ll find that on every level, Barberitos is different. Not only with the food and atmosphere, but also the way we have structured our franchising programs. Our overriding concern is your success. After all, you as a franchise partner have to be successful before we can.

First and foremost, “fresh” is not an abstract concept. Fresh, all natural vegetables are delivered daily. Salsa, guacamole, hot sauce, meat marinades and sauces are made from scratch. Tomatoes have never seen the inside of a can. Barberitos restaurants do not have freezers or microwaves, and no fats or preservatives are added. We only use fresh breasts of chicken, and all of our meats are char-grilled right in the restaurant.


Our franchise partners are part of our family. Our commitment is to do everything we possibly can to make our owners successful. You will never be a number to us…we care about you, your business, and your family. We will work together as a team and achieve success together.

You should be aware that franchising is not for everybody. Do you like to invent new things and do them your way? Do you like to change things that are already in place? Do you think that lower quality is better because it costs less? If so, you are probably better starting your own concept rather than joining us.

On the other hand, do you want to take advantage of a time tested, proven system and way of doing business? Do you want to be your own boss while utilizing a successful, existing framework? Are you ready to be accountable to yourself and have your hard work benefit you and your family instead of your boss?

The fast casual restaurant segment has continued to perform well despite the recent troubled economy. In particular, the “fresh-Mex” or “healthy Mex” segments have grown because of higher quality food and the fact that consumers are experiencing “burger and fry fatigue”. Barberitos offers “flavors that blow your taste buds away” in an inviting atmosphere with world-class systems and support that allows our franchise partners to take advantage of opportunities others can’t.

Quite simply, we do things differently. In an industry where “site only” franchise agreements are prevalent, we offer a protected area. Most franchises do not offer performance information in their Federal Disclosure Documents. We do. Many franchises do not even operate any of their own concept, so they don’t fully understand what franchisees have to deal with. No Ivory tower thinking here…our founder and CEO continues to own and operate several restaurants so every decision we make corporately affects him personally. Our overriding focus is increasing your profits. What good are increased sales if you are losing money on each item? With over 20 thriving restaurants in four states, our goal is not to grow at all costs. We are only going to open successful restaurants with franchise partners who fit in our culture.

As a full service franchisor with world-class support we will offer you:
  • The opportunity to join a prosperous system strategically placed in one of the fastest growing food segments.
  • Our promise that we will always treat you, our franchise partner, with respect and that you will never be a number to us.
And of course…
  • A protected area in an industry where site only franchises are the norm.
  • Site selection expertise
  • Design and construction expertise
  • Marketing expertise
  • Business management and back office systems
  • Research and development
  • The best field support in the industry
