Fast and fresh burritos are coming to Heritage Square Shopping Center in Cherry Hill. Mike Yurcho and Jim Kolzow are expecting their latest Pancheros Mexican Grill franchise, at 1871 Marlton Pike East, to be open in December. Yurcho tells What Now Philadelphia that he and his partner have been eyeing Cherry Hill for a new Pancheros Mexican Grill location for years.
“We are super pumped! Being on a major thoroughfare and just excited to bring our burritos to Cherry Hill,” said Yurcho.
While Yurcho and Kolzow initially experienced construction delays, renovations have resumed on the site to prepare it for its late fall opening. Yurcho and Kolzow own two other Pancheros locations in Voorhees, at 910 Haddonfield Berlin Rd., and Berlin, at 115 N. Route 73. They also have their hand in a handful of other Pancheros locations in Southern Jersey. The popularity of those two sites is what gave them the initiative to open a third.
“I am so grateful for the loyalty our fans here in South Jersey have shown to our existing Pancheros restaurants. Their excitement for our first two locations is why we are so confident in bringing a third restaurant to the area,” Yurcho said in a press release. “We know that South Jersey loves Pancheros, and we are excited to serve Cherry Hill our Burritos and Queso.”
Yurcho and Kolzow’s new location is a part of the fast-casual Mexican chain’s continued expansion which includes upcoming locations in Illinois and North Dakota. Pancheros Mexican Grill offers burritos, burrito bowls, salads, tacos, and quesadillas made to order with a variety of fresh ingredients and salsas. Tortillas are pressed on-site from balls of dough directly in front of customers and their “Bob” tool ensures that burrito ingredients are evenly disbursed in every bite. The first Pancheros opened in 1992 in Iowa City and has grown to about 69 locations in 12 states.
