Manchester’s famous Changos Burrito Bar is changing its name and look – but, rest assured, their amazing burritos are staying the same.
They’ve just rebranded as Listo Burrito – commissioning local artist Chris Dorning (aka The Cunning Craftsman) to paint a mega ‘Bad Ass Burritos’ mural inside their hugely popular Oxford Road burrito shop.
And to celebrate the change, this month bosses will be giving away 150 kilos worth of huge burritos for free to lucky winners.
Owner Roger Taylor explained the change is due to “trademark and legal reasons” but was keen to stress that “nothing else is changing with [the] operation, only our name and a few branding tweaks”.
“We have the same fantastic staff, some of who started with us in 2013, the same great suppliers and we will continue to trade at our three current locations,” he added.
He also hinted that they were keeping an eye out for new opportunities for more openings in the future. Currently, there are three sites – two in Manchester and one in Liverpool.
And throughout January, as part of the re-launch, Listo Burrito is giving you the chance to win one of their specially crafted, whopping, limited edition 3lb burritos!
From 9th January, whenever you see an image of the special 3lb burrito, simply follow @listoburrito, share on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook using the hashtag #AreYouListo? and they’ll pick a winner every single day in January until 31st.
And, if you fancy tackling the 3lb burrito with your work team, then follow them, share and tag your teammates using the hashtag #TeamListo and on each Tuesday in January, they’ll pick a winner.
Reflecting on Manchester’s ongoing homelessness crisis, Roger has also decided to partner with The Booth Centre by donating a portion of its sales to the charity.
“Homelessness is sadly a huge issue in Manchester, especially around our location on Oxford Street,” commented Roger.
“The Booth Centre do a phenomenal job and we’re hoping to raise much-needed funds that will help support their ongoing work’.’
By offering those in need healthy meals every day and running daily skills workshops, the charity is helping to change the lives of Manchester’s homeless.
