Überrito announced today that Christ Lutheran School is the winner of the “Überrito Burrito Battle,” celebrating the win with a $500 check and a specially catered lunch for a teachers and staff. The fundraiser offered a friendly school spirit competition between area schools that included Arcadia High School, Camelback High School and Christ Lutheran School.
The battle was the culmination of the grand opening celebration for Überrito’s newest restaurant, located at 4325 E. Indian School Road in the Arcadia Gateway shopping center. The newest Überrito location recently celebrated its grand opening, joining the nearby Scottsdale location as the second Phoenix-area Überrito restaurant.
Over a two-week time period, customers were encouraged to visit the Arcadia Überrito and mention the school they would like to support at checkout. Überrito then donated 15 percent of sales from every school purchase and then matched that amount for the school with the most sales.
“We are so pleased to be able to give back to the community in such a fun and beneficial way that celebrates our exceptional Phoenix-area schools and teachers,” said Marcus Jundt, CEO of Überrito. “We look forward to opportunities to serve our community for many years to come.”
Überrito encourages customers to “try something nü”, offering nearly unlimited combinations with eight different proteins, 28 ingredients, eight house-made salsas and four flavors of fresh tortillas. Customers wishing to go tortilla free may opt for a bowl, salad or nachos layered in queso. The menu also includes “10 Tasty Tacos” and house-made tortilla soup.
The Überrito concept launched December 2014, building on the success of the former Mission Burrito founded in 1996 in Houston. The fast-casual concept goes above and beyond the basic burrito, offering customers flavor, variety and a unique dining experience. Menu items include unlimited combinations with eight different proteins, 28 ingredients, eight house-made salsas, and four flavors of fresh tortillas. Bowls, salads, house-made tortilla soup and “10 Tasty Tacos” are customer favorites. Visit Überrito online at http://uberrito.com and on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.
