LEAGUE CITY, Texas, Dec. 9, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- FREEBIRDS World Burrito, known for its extraordinary range of create-your-own gourmet burritos, tacos, burrito bowls, salads and more, will open in League City, its 42nd restaurant at Victory Plaza on Tuesday, December 14, 2010. Local resident and restaurant veteran Chris Key will manage the new FREEBIRDS restaurant and employ approximately 50 team members from the local community.
FREEBIRDS and its charitable arm, FREEBIRDS World Works, have a mission to help inspire staff and guests to give back to the community. In the days leading up to the opening, FREEBIRDS World Works will conduct the following pre-opening events that are open to the public:
- Sunday, December 12, 2010, FREEBIRDS will partner with Bay Area Habitat For Humanity from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. and again at 5 p.m. – 7 p.m. The first 500 guests during both time slots will enjoy complimentary food and drinks in exchange for a $5 donation to Bay Area Habitat For Humanity.
- Monday, December 13, 2010, FREEBIRDS will partner with Bay Area Meals on Wheels and offer 250 guests to join us at our new location from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. We will offer complimentary food and drinks with their donation of $5 to Bay Area Meals on Wheels.
FREEBIRDS offers guests "way more choices" and the freedom to fully customize their own burritos, salads, nachos, burrito bowls, tacos and quesadillas any way they like. With a reputation for highly personalized, one-to-one service, crew members help guests select from an extraordinary range of more than 40 freshly prepared ingredients including fire-grilled chicken, slow-roasted pork carnitas and grass fed beef topped with hand-cut peppers and vegetables plus house made salsas and guacamole. Guests also have the option to choose from four flavors and four sizes of tortillas to build burritos ranging from the substantial Hybird to the legendary Super Monster which can weigh-in at seven pounds.
FREEBIRDS restaurants have a free-spirited atmosphere which is reminiscent of a late 60's rock n' roll roadhouse. Be it the backwards "F" logo, the music lyrics splashed across the walls, the iconic music soundtrack or the Statue of Liberty — "Libby" — breaking through the Freedom Wall on a custom-built motorcycle, FREEBIRDS delivers freedom of choice and an incredible experience that has created generations of "Freebirds Fanatics" throughout the U.S. Currently there are 42 locations open with more than 60 planned before the end of 2011.
The new FREEBIRDS restaurant is located in League City at 1615 N. FM 646 and I-45 in League City, Texas. The restaurant can be reached directly at 281-534-9291. Hours are Monday through Thursday 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., Friday and Saturday 11 a.m. – 10:30 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. FREEBIRDS offers online ordering and full service catering (feeding 10 – 10,000).
