Disrupting the Burrito World with Überrito featuring Jacob, Dylan & Chris

Welcome back to the Beef! We’ve got a full house today with Jacob, Chris, and Dylan from Überrito joining us in conversation. Überrito is a burrito shop with a new franchise coming up in Huntsville and today you’ll hear the story of how Dylan uprooted his life to become Jacob’s business partner in their franchise of Überrito, and why they are so passionate about the brand. Learn about their backgrounds in the restaurant industry, and what motivated them to move forward into a space where there was a payout for them, rather than building someone else’s business. Chris shares the story of how he met Jacob and Dylan, and reveals the character traits he noticed that caused him to trust them and invest in their ideas. You’ll hear about the best items on the menu and the amazing variety they have on offer, as well as where to find their locations and what they plan to do next. Tune in to hear from this inspiring team today!

“I have been working in the restaurant industry since I was sixteen years old, until I realized I had been busting my ass for all these other companies, they’d get acquired and sold and we’d get a payout. I thought, ‘If I’m going to work hard, I want there to be a payout for me!’” — Jacob [0:07:15]

“We’ve got cilantro lime rice, we’ve got cauliflower rice for those who want the healthier option, freshly made black beans, pinto beans, refried beans, so many options.” — Jacob [0:28:50]
