Company Description

Tex-Mex chain Tijuana Flats got its start in Winter Park, Florida, after founder Brian Wheeler convinced his dad to loan him the money. (His dad, Chester, later decided to leave a corporate career to serve as CFO at his son’s company.) The fast-casual concept sells an array of tacos, burritos, enchiladas and other Mexican-inspired fare, plus many units offer beer. Community involvement is core to the brand, and the Just in Queso Foundation supports people in times of need, particularly children and military service members.
