At Burrito Shak, we serve delicious Fresh Mex food

I've been in the food service industry for over 20 years, with 10+ years as an executive chef in fine dining. My passion for great, fresh food is reflected in the arc of my career. After years of paper drafts, recipes, and time in the kitchen, Burrito Shak was born.

Burrito Shak is all about Baja-Style food at affordable prices, with a menu that has a beachy, coastal vibe. And it's all about great opportunity for restaurant entrepreneurs like you.

All of this thoughtful planning has paid off. Since our flagship restaurant opened in Hampstead, North Carolina in 2015, we have established a solid reputation for excellence and an ever-growing base of loyal customers. In fact, our patrons voted Burrito Shak the “Best Taco in North Carolina” in a six-round elimination style tournament, organized by the travel website Strange Carolinas. Securing this prize and state-wide visibility has only amplified our steady growth.

And now through our franchise program, Burrito Shak is positioned for even greater expansion. This business is our dream and passion, and we want to grow it with a team of entrepreneurs that share our commitment to excellence. This is an opportunity to have a stake in a straight-forward yet relaxed and fun concept that is defined by quality and rooted in decades of industry experience. So join us, and build your future with a compelling investment and unique concept you can truly be proud of!

In addition to exceptional, fresh food, Burrito Shak is defined by a coastal surf vibe. Every item on the menu is named after a beach town, surf break or fish; and the décor is simple, beachy and comfortable.

Customers at your Burrito Shak restaurant can choose from a variety of burritos, tacos, bowls, quesadillas and nachos. Every entrée is made to order with a choice of tasty proteins such as house-spiced chicken breast, seasoned ground beef, and battered Atlantic cod.

And everything is served with a range of vegetables, sauces and cheeses; along with chips and your house-made salsa. All with a range of soft drinks and beers to compliment an outstanding meal.

This approach to serving great fresh food in a fun and inviting atmosphere will appeal to appetites of all ages, and allow you to grow your business one deliciously inspired dish at a time.

Before the launch of your business you will participate in a training program to review both essential business operations and recipes. Because our food preparation procedures are fairly straight-forward, a background in the food industry isn't required for franchise ownership.


All franchise owners will have the support of a management team with extensive industry experience. As you grow your business, our knowledge and advice will be available to you, every step of the way.


As part of the pre-opening process the Burrito Shak management team will assist all franchise owners in planning and ordering the base equipment and smallwares needed to get your team through their prep, cooking, and serving. You will also receive guidance for the build-out and interior design of your restaurant to ensure you capture that unique Burrito Shak vibe.






Franchise owners will have support in developing a marketing strategy for their local area, including sample materials and campaigns and online presence. This will help you build awareness around our established brand and reputation, in your area.
