FREEBIRDS WORLD BURRITO to Open Fifth Utah Location in Sugar House August 21, 2014 Salt Lake City - FREEBIRDS World Burrito, the fast casual burrito joint with a rock 'n' roll attitude, along with local franchisee Mark McKay and Chris Beck-McKay of MC Food Service, LLC, will open its fifth location in less than a year, on Monday, August 25 at 10 a.m. in Sugar House, Utah. Located at 2120 S. 1300 East #3, the newest FREEBIRDS restaurant is on the first floor of Westminster on the Draw, a mixed-use structure that Westminster leases as part of its extended campus initiatives. The structure, across from Sugar House Park, provides housing for 166 Westminster upper classmen, and offers 16,000 sq. ft. of event office and classroom space. "We are thrilled to welcome Freebirds to Sugar House and Griffin country," said Annalisa Holcombe, associate provost for community based learning at Westminster. "The addition of Freebirds to the street-level retail space of Westminster on the Draw completes the goal of creating a truly mixed-use space that further connects our students with the community." The new location's hours are Monday through Thursday 10:30 a.m. to 9 p.m., Friday and Saturday 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. To celebrate the grand opening, FREEBIRDS will be awarding two guests per day with burritos for a year - one burrito per week for 52 weeks. The winners will be chosen at random every day from August 25 - 30. "We are very excited to be opening our fifth location along the Wasatch Front," says Beck-McKay. "From the quality and taste of the food, to the employees, to the unique atmosphere, it truly is a one-of-a-kind experience that Sugar House residents and nearby college students can now enjoy."
