Irving Shouts Freebirds: A New Location and A Sneak Peek
Freebirds World Burrito, you know, the other 'FB' you love besides Facebook, is bringing its "hippie-inspired burrito concept that originated in Santa Barbara, CA" to Irving, TX. Jason Daniel, Director of Operations for Freebirds, along with his team, is working hard to bring restaurant #49 to 7601 N. MacArthur, Suite 110 (last occupied by Baja Fresh) in Irving on Wednesday, June 8.
Leading up to the June 8 grand opening, Freebirds will have a Sneak Peek on Monday, June 6 from 11am-1pm and 5pm-7pm. During the Sneak Peek the first 250 guests will receive a free entrée and drink when they donate $5 or more to Irving Cares--a non-profit organization dedicated to providing temporary assistance and training to promote self-sufficiency.
Then on Tuesday June 7, from 6:30 to 9pm, Freebirds will join Irving Cares and its other non-profit partner organization Captain Hope's For Kids--an organization that meets the critical needs of homeless children--at a by-invitation-only event to honor its volunteers, friends and supporters.
When Freebirds finally opens on June 8, the first 25 people in line will receive free burritos for one year. Daniel explains that Freebirds "doesn't have any freezers on its premises" and has a "scratch recipe kitchen." There aren't any pre-designated items on the Freebirds menu. Each customer has its own "roller" to help him or her choose the ingredients for a perfect burrito.
Daniel smiles with excitement as he explains the high-energy rock and roll environment of Freebirds and how its employees "don't wear uniforms, because they are free to express themselves. He then shows off restaurant 49's mascot "Libby." Libby is "the Statute of Liberty riding on a Harley Davidson as she breaks through the Berlin Wall."
The Freebrids motto is "peace, love and burritos" and if you're lucky enough to be one of the first 25 on opening day you'll be loving those peaceful burritos all year long for FREE.
