Burrito fans, your day has arrived.
Thursday is National Burrito Day, and Mexican chains are going the whole enchilada and passing along hot deals that include buy-one-get-one and discounted entrees.
The made-up food holiday is held on the first Thursday of April each year.
According to an analysis by Womply, a small business software provider, National Burrito Day is in the middle of the pack for the year’s sales days at Mexican restaurants, ranking No. 158 out of all 365 days.
“On National Burrito Day, you can enjoy your favorite wrap without getting swallowed up by big crowds,” said Brad Plothow, vice president of brand and communications for Womply. “Foot traffic to Mexican restaurants is basically flat, so go get yourself a burrito at your favorite local eatery.”
And what’s the most popular type of burrito?
According to Grubhub, bean burritos were the favorite kind and also the No. 1 food of 2018 based on orders placed on the mobile food-ordering and delivery service’s website and app.
