A new burrito shop will be opening in Stadium Village next to Caribou Coffee in May.

LeoâÄôs Burritos is a new take on the âÄúcafeteria lineâÄù burrito and will offer customers sautéed made-to-order burritos.

Manny Perez, an owner of the shop, said he sees burrito restaurants to be an up and coming concept.

âÄúItâÄôs a good product with lots of different variety to be had,âÄù Perez said. âÄúAnd thereâÄôs only one kind right nowâÄîcafeteria line.âÄù

The flavors at LeoâÄôs Burritos are internationally chosen, featuring options like teriyaki, lemon garlic and Thai chicken. There will also be some vegetarian options.

The restaurant will be the brandâÄôs first, but Perez said heâÄôs owned a few Subway sandwich shops before.

Perez said one of the reasons he chose to start his business in Stadium Village is because of the recent growth with the new stadium and apartment construction.

Though the shop will be opening in May just as construction for the Central Corridor begins and students will be leaving campus for the summer, Perez said he isnâÄôt worried.

âÄúIt will be a challenge but weâÄôre ready,âÄù he said. âÄúWeâÄôll be fine.âÄù
