Miguel’s Jr. Officially Opened its First Redefined Drive-Thru Concept in Norco, January 18th

On Thursday, January 18, Miguel’s Jr. President and CEO Javier Vasquez and founders Mike and Mary Vasquez hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony and free lunch for the public to officially open the brand’s newest concept and 18th location in Norco, CA. Marking Norco’s 2nd Miguel’s Jr. restaurant, the newest location is the first of the brand’s redefined drive-thru concepts, serving as a test location for future expansion plans.

Norco Chamber of Commerce Chairman of the Board, Jesus Martinez, Corona Chamber of Commerce President, Bobby Spiegel; City of Norco Mayor Ted Hoffman, and City of Corona Mayor Karen Spiegel attended the festivities to welcome the new homestyle California Mexican food destination, a brand that already plays a great role in the community’s dining culture.

“It’s wonderful to see Miguel’s Jr. expanding its brand in our own backyard,” stated Jesus Martinez, Chairman of the Board for Norco Chamber of Commerce, “The company has played an essential role in our community over the last 45 years and we’re thrilled to see the beginning of new concepts and continued success.”

The new retail strategy is focused on speed of service and order accuracy. Located in the Norco Village Shopping Center, the new 2,500 sq. ft. location will feature a smaller dining room with a drive thru capacity up to 30% greater than the typical store model. The brand has plans to continue expansion in the Southern California market in 2018 with the smaller drive-thru focused locations.

The new Norco store will offer all the latest Miguel’s Jr. menu items, including a full breakfast menu with 7 breakfast burritos and a variety of breakfast plates. The menu also includes the new homemade horchata and all-natural lemonade made with 100% all natural pure cane sugar and fresh-squeezed lemons.

Miguel’s Jr. Norco continues the family tradition of homestyle Mexican dishes made using only premium ingredients including fresh Haas avocados, all natural and hormone free poultry, pasture raised, corn fed beef, 100% stone ground tortillas and tortilla chips, as well as their famous fresh-made daily hot sauce, available at the counter.

    I’ve been a big fan of the food for 20 years. Mike and I used to play rugby for the Riverside yellow jackets. I think it was 1994 when Jr sponsored our rugby jerseys. I haven’t seen Mike in a long time. We’ve been big fans of the food for several years.
