Big City Burrito getting close to its big day
A couple of months later than expected, Big City Burrito is set to open its downtown location at Bijou Street and Nevada Avenue by the end of June. With 2,842 square feet it will be roughly twice the size of the typical Big City Burrito and franchise holders John and Kathleen Harper will enliven the space by having regular photo and art exhibits in an art deco setting. There will be live music in the evenings with booking help from their son, Aaron Waters. Big City Burrito will have a separate door for take-out orders that are phoned in or faxed from downtown businesses. "We are even thinking about delivery as long as we can do it in a way that does not compromise the quality of the food," said John Harper. The company has already hired 10, including a couple of cooks who worked for the Big City Burrito store in Monument.
