The fast-growing Bubbakoo’s Burritos was founded in 2008 and began a franchising effort in 2016. The burgeoning burrito joint with a Jersey Shore “laid back vibe” offers fast-casual burrito fare such as burritos, bowls, tacos, salad, nachos and quesadillas, but with 16 different protein options — including fried chicken, barbecue pork, Buffalo shrimp and Hibachi steak, as well as some more unusual flavors such as ghost pepper chicken and sriracha pork. Vegetarian options include a bean-cheese-guacamole combo and batter-fried jalapeños.
In this MRM News video, co-founders Paul Altero and Bill Hart discuss a number of issues including delivery, catering and the use of technology.
Throughout the next several years, Altero and Hart hope to find additional franchise partners to expand the brand into other parts of the Tri-State area. The plan is to have an additional 10 to 15 open in 2018.
