Franchise Info

franchise finance

Established in 2005, Barburrito is a brand with exceptionally high standards of food and service, supremely loyal customers, and fiercely ambitious growth plans. Our mission is simple. To be the world’s most loved burrito brand.

We’re well-established pioneers of the burrito game who don’t do things like everyone else. Our ingredients are responsibly sourced and freshly prepared by our expert “burr-istas” who are proud to deliver quick, reliable, and quality service every time. Our menus are designed for our diverse customer base with a strong vegan, vegetarian and culturally diverse following.

We are looking for experienced F&B operators to help expand the Barburrito brand across the UK.

Our opportunity

The Barburrito opportunity has a flexible footprint – 330-2500 sq ft – from food courts to 120 cover restaurants.  

Suitable for shopping malls, travel hubs and high streets             

We have performed very well despite a challenging economic landscape thanks to the highly resilient young, diverse target market; affordability (ATV between £10 and £11); and portability of our menu. Our structure is such that it can continue to perform well and not be negatively impacted by changes in the economy.

With a robust and successful strategy for making the most of delivery, Barburrito are also at the forefront of the market. Our restaurants offer a range of additional virtual brands via selected delivery partners to maximise market share.

We believe there is a strong opportunity for accelerated roll out in the current property climate.
