Baja Fresh Takes Residency in Nashville’s Vanderbilt Medical Center

Baja Fresh Opens New Baja Fresh Express Inside Courtyard Café

Baja Fresh Mexican Grill, the fast-casual fresh Mexican chain, is continuing its 2009 expansion with the opening of the restaurant’s newest Baja Fresh Express location inside Nashville’s Vanderbilt Medical Center Courtyard Café. The new restaurant offers flavorful and fresh Mexican food in an express format perfect for busy students, faculty, patients and facility guests alike.

The 600 square foot restaurant is owned and operated by 20 year industry veteran Maria Nayyar. It is open from 10am-10pm, 7 days per week. When asked why she opened a Baja Fresh in its particular location Nayyar responded, ‘Vanderbilt Medical Center is a teaching hospital and employs 22,000 people. The Courtyard Café consistently does over 3,000 transactions per day. Baja Fresh is known for its outstanding quality, freshness, cleanliness, and customer service. We will be the 1st premier brand offering made to order burritos, tacos, and other Mexican favorites in the Courtyard Café.’

Baja Fresh President Charles Rink noted, “The Baja Fresh Express model opened in the Vanderbilt Medical Center is a great example of the company’s philosophy to seek out non-traditional opportunities and continued growth plans throughout the United States. We look forward to the success of this restaurant.’ In a final note Maria Nayyar stated, ‘Our organization is very pleased with the franchise opportunity at Vanderbilt Medical Center. The level of support from the Baja Fresh Corporation has been extremely professional and made the venture very successful.’
