Begun in 2016, this freestanding, drive-thru, quick service Mexican restaurant features the first full exterior redesign of its kind. With updated streamlined elements and new textures, the structure takes on a smoother, more modernized feel from its more traditional counterparts. The building’s standout new feature is a simplified horizontal stack finish.
Brand guidelines for prototype projects also incorporated here included Chinese red towers, large storefronts in dining areas, and modern grey stucco field colors with java brown accents at the parapets.
