Barberitos Supports Breast Cancer Awareness

Barberitos, a Tex-Mex restaurant chain based in Athens, Georgia, is launching a month-long, system-wide breast cancer awareness campaign. Barberitos is participating in all sorts of activities that raise money in support of breast cancer awareness month. All of the Barberitos locations will be hosting a Breast Cancer Awareness Percentage Day on Tuesday, October 1st; 10% of all day sales will be donated to local breast cancer organizations. Pink chips will be served all day to show support for the cause.

Barberitos will also be selling breast cancer themed t-shirts featuring the slogan “Know Your Roll.”  100% of t-shirt sale profits will be donated to local organizations benefiting breast cancer research. In addition, donations are being accepted at the cash register or online at  Give big or small… every bit helps!

“We couldn’t be happier to help support such a great cause,” says Downing Barber, founder and CEO of Barberitos, “It’s our philosophy to be involved and give back to the community in any way we can.”

Barberitos is a quick service restaurant offering fresh, Tex-Mex cuisine including a variety of burritos, tacos, salads, quesadillas and nachos made to order.

Committed to serving “farm fresh” food, Barberitos serves all natural vegetables delivered to stores and hand-cut daily.  Whole breasts of chicken are grilled fresh, as is the high quality cuts of steak, and choice ground beef.  Barberitos restaurants are not equipped with freezers or microwaves as all food is prepared fresh, with no fats or preservatives added at the time of preparation.  Barberitos’ salsas, guacamole, hot sauces, meat marinades, and salad dressings are made from scratch each day.

Each menu offering is prepared at the time it is ordered right in front of the customer.  Barberitos “7 Under 7” menu features seven items each under seven grams of fat including a mini grilled chicken burrito, jerk fish taco, and a variety of salads.

Barberitos provides full-service catering ranging from burrito boxed lunches to taco, salad, nacho, or fajita bars that can be customized to serve a few to several hundred people.  

Barberitos has 49 signed restaurant locations, 34 of which are open for business in Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina and Tennessee, and Florida.
