Mission Park Shopping Centre on Lakeshore Road in Kelowna is welcoming Quesada Burritos & Tacos this month. The opening date is expected to be October 21st. The Canadian owned franchise restaurant group has been sharing the Joy of Mex since 2004 and serving their very successful lighter Mexican fare to a growing fanbase.
Out of all the Mexican restaurant chains, Quesada Burritos & Tacos is known for healthy options that are still very satisfying and tasty. When asked what makes the menu typical Quesada, and why it has people coming back, founder and CEO Steve Gill replied: “I would say how much of the food is prepared in-house. From roasting the peppers in the restaurants, hydrating them and blending them into the sauce.” Quesada Burritos & Tacos doesn’t use any premade salsas or sauces, and practically all food is prepared at the restaurants. “The freshness of the food really comes through,” adds Steve Gill.
A key ingredient for success is not just a menu that sits well with the public, but also great leadership. Quesada’s management team has a proven supportive approach giving franchisees all the tools they need to set themselves up for success. Greg Gill, Quesada’s COO and Steve Gill’s brother is spending a few days in Kelowna to support hands-on with the opening of Quesada at Mission Park Shopping Centre.
The Okanagan is a relatively new market for Quesada Burritos & Tacos and Steve Gill is excited about the opening at Mission Park Shopping Centre: “Kelowna was our first municipality for the roll-out of Quesada in the Okanagan, and has been a very strong market right from the get-go”. Kelowna’s Mission Park Shopping Centre is an excellent location that will service the beach areas and Quesada Burritos & Tacos is aiming to become the go-to food destination for those wanting fresh Mexican food made to order while enjoying the beaches in Kelowna. The first Quesada Burritos & Tacos opened in 2004 in Toronto. The Mission Park Shopping Centre location will be the 148th location in Canada.
The company website offers information on takeout and delivery for every Quesada Burritos & Tacos location. With takeout and delivery on the rise, Quesada is launching family style portion meals this winter. Full catering services are available for parties, businesses, and other activities.
You can find Quesada Burritos & Tacos at 12-3151 Lakeshore Road in Kelowna, open 7 days a week from 11am to 9pm.
