Salsa Fresca has claimed its stake at 275 Post Road East, with the fast-food Mexican restaurant quietly announcing last week its future opening. The chain was founded in 2008 with one location, and now has 11 locations throughout New York and Connecticut. The location will be the first for Fairfield County. According to their website, the restaurant describes “With no freezers in our restaurants, we take the freshest ingredients and prepare them on site, following recipes that were exclusively developed by our in-house culinary team, and serve food we serve our own families …and that you will be proud to serve, too.”
Prior to Salsa Fresca, Qdoba – another fast-food mexican restaurant chain – occupied the space until their closure in 2018, around the same time that the Qdoba brand was sold from Jack in the Box to Apollo Global Management for $305 million.
