Staff Report From Athens CEO

Wednesday, May 23rd, 2018

Barberitos, a fast-growing restaurant franchise specializing in burritos, tacos and quesadillas, had its two best sales days ever during this year's Cinco de Mayo celebration. Gross sales on Saturday, May 5, broke the previous storewide sales record that was set only the day before.

To help boost sales, many of the franchise's locations chose to feature specific promotions to help commemorate the annual celebration. In addition, system-wide promotions included Double Rewards Progress and Free Small Cheese Dip for the restaurant's app users.

The majority of the franchise's 52 stores had positive sales growth for the week, which is a trend that will help the company realize its goal of increasing overall yearly sales by 10%, according to Downing Barber, CEO and founder of Barberitos.

"Eclipsing our company-wide sales record on back-to-back days is impressive," says Barber. "It's a testament to the hard work our franchisees put in every single day, and further proof that consumers appreciate fresh, healthy food options — no matter the occasion."
