SAN Welcomes Baja Fresh Express, Organic To Go

The first fully branded airport location of Organic To Go and the third such location for Baja Fresh Express opened their doors at San Diego International (SAN) on April 3.

Both locations are located in Terminal 1, pre-security.

Organic To Go uses certified organic ingredients which, when possible, are locally sourced. The SAN location, managed by Concessions Management Services, will offer the company’s full-service menu including soups, sandwiches, mini-pizzas, coffee and espresso drinks.

“We are very excited to launch our first franchise within San Diego International,” says Jason R. Brown, CEO of Organic To Go. “Showcased in the midst of Chili’s, McDonalds, Baja Fresh and Starbucks, Organic To Go’s fresh, ‘clean’ menu options and vegetarian alternatives make a great deal of sense for travelers to and from southern California, allowing for a complete set of choices. As airlines pull back from complimentary foodservice on flights, Organic To Go offers a quick grab-and-go option that is not only delicious, but also nutritious.”

Baja Fresh Express is a hybrid version of Baja Fresh, letting guests customize their burritos. The menu features a large selection from the menu of the company’s street-side locations, such as the Baja chicken burrito, grilled salad burrito and chicken quesadilla; a breakfast menu has also been added.

 “We’re very excited to be part of the San Diego airport, and feel that passengers will welcome the High Quality Fresh Mexican food that Baja Fresh offers,” says Chuck Rink, president of Baja Fresh.
