Barburrito acquires Pinto Mexican Kitchen

Mexican burrito chain Barburrito has acquired the Scottish chain Pinto Mexican Kitchen, in a deal that takes Barburrito to 17 sites.

Pinto Mexican Kitchen comprises five Pinto restaurants, which are all in Edinburgh and Glasgow. The operation will be rebranded to the Barburrito brand over the next six months.

Barburrito, which aims to increase to 25 sites over the next 18 months, is backed by growth capital provider BGF.

Morgan Davies, chief executive of Barburrito, said: "We are thrilled to have acquired the Pinto business. It is a well-run operation with five great locations in Scotland, a key focus area for us.

"Having grown up in Scotland, I am personally delighted that we are expanding here. We are serious about establishing Barburrito as a UK-wide operation and this key acquisition in Scotland affirms our position as the leading burrito bar operator outside London."
