Calexico has been operating food carts and restaurants in New York City since 2006. Founded by three brothers from the border town of Calexico, California (California + Mexico = Calexico), Calexico serves fresh food that combines the flavors of Mexico with elements of Southern Barbecue. Everything is made from scratch daily, and always with the focus on freshness that is a hallmark of Californian cuisine.
Despite the rapid growth, Calexico’s mission remains simple: to serve delicious, exciting food at a reasonable price.
Calexico’s formats have grown from street carts to now include a fast casual restaurant as well as a full service restaurant with a patio and full bar. In 2012 Calexico’s full serve restaurant was named Best Mexican in NYC by Zagat. Calexico was recruited in 2012 to be one of the select vendors inside of the state-of-the-art Barclays Center, which, in addition to its premier facilities, wanted to provide guests with top-of-the-line food vendors.
Unlike any brand in the Mexican segment today... Calexico has created a new world, full of loyal fans, with a unique brand experience that one must see, taste and feel to truly understand. More than a restaurant, more than a franchise, more than a compelling business opportunity... Calexico is a real place.
Your revenues may vary significantly depending on a number of factors, including the location of your Restaurant and how you operate your business. We strongly urge you to consult with your financial advisor or personal accountant concerning the financial analysis that you should make in determining whether or not to purchase a Calexico franchise.
