Canyons Burger Company and Baja Fresh to Join Forces in 2010

Franchisee signs on to open newly developed cohabitation concept

Canyons Burger Company and Baja Fresh Mexican Grill, the quick-casual Burger and Fresh-Mexican chains, are excited to announce two planned openings of a newly developed cohabitation concept. With the first scheduled to open in 2010 in Bozeman, MT, both Canyons Burger Company and Baja Fresh will be outfitted in a large single retail unit highlighting the full menus and décor of each of the brands respectively. This will be Canyons’ first restaurant outside of Atlanta, and Baja Fresh’s first restaurant in Montana. Canyons is known for its high quality gourmet burgers and rustic outdoor look; and Baja Fresh for its spacious contemporary environment and made to order tacos, burritos, fajitas, salads and limitless salsa bar. The new concept will allow guests with varying tastes to dine together under one roof.

The cohabitating restaurants will be owned and operated by Tim and Heidi Redelsperger. The Redelspergers are founders of Snappy Lube & Snappy Auto Spa in CA & AZ. They have a background in multi-unit operations with an emphasis on community relations and customer service. ‘The Redelsperger’s operational background will be sure to assist in the development and execution of this excellent new restaurant concept. We are thrilled to have them on board as our first franchisees of the Canyons and Baja Fresh cohabitation,’ stated Baja Fresh President Charles Rink. The Redelspergers also noted ‘There is a significant niche for Canyons Burgers and Baja Fresh to expand in the Montana market. We are happy to bring these two excellent brands to the region in 2010.’
