Its hard to believe that 2011 has come and gone. That means it’s been 20 years since the hip-hoping 90′s and 30 years since the breaking 80′s – man that makes me feel old! It means much more for us at EBX though; 2011 was our 30 year anniversary! It feels real good to be around for that long and to know that our customers appreciate all our hard work and perseverance. Now that 2011 has come and gone, lets take a look at what it entailed for the EBX familia:
We kicked off 2011 with our EBX Flavor of Mexico youtube video. Check it out:
Next, we celebrated our 30 anniversary year with not one, not two, not even 3, but 4 B.O.G.O burrito specials during the month of February! Visit this page to find out more.
In March, we had our “burritos+brackets+basketball” give away, celebrating the Sweet 16 college basketball tournament. Check out the event recap here.
In April, EBX teamed up with March of Dimes for the San Francisco walk & fund raiser. It was great to donate food to a worthy cause. As founder and owner Mila Havlicek put it, “We were all babies once, wrapped up warm and tight like a burrito!” Check out our poster below:
In May, we celebrated Cinco De Mayo with some great food & drink specials. We had a blast celebrating with customers old and new!
In June, EBX donated to another great, uniquely San Franciscan event: Free Concerts at the Park. For countless years Stern Grove has supplied fun, top-notch entertainment to the people of San Francisco. It was a pleasure to donate food to the musicians and help in “Feeding the Mafia.” Read about it here.
In July, EBX collaborated with another fantastic San Francisco non-profit: Glide SF. It was a pleasure to donate food to this event. Glide has done a lot for those less fortunate and we were honored to work with them. Read about it here.
In August, EBX competed (to no avail) in the SF Weekly Web Awards for best food vendor twitter account. It was fun to be in the running! Follow us @ebxsf.
In September, EBX continued it’s annual “burritos & baseball” give away. 4 lucky fans got to go to the Giants game and enjoy burritos courtesy of EBX. Unfortunately it was a lack luster year for Los Gigantes. 2012 will be ours!
In October, EBX collaborated with SF Weekly at it’s annual Dish SF event, a benefit for La Cocina. It was great to contribute to a cause that was aligned with our personal beliefs and philosophies. Read about it here. We can’t forget to mention on Halloween we gave BOGO burritos to anyone that came in costume! It was a spooky treat.
2011 was also the year EBX went back to “burrito basics.” We continually gathered feedback from our customers and administered a survey to find out what we were doing right, what was going wrong, and what we could improve on. Needless to say we’ve compiled a lot of data and are looking forward to applying all of it in the years to come.
Gracias amigos, for a memorable year full of good food and good times. Here’s to 2012!
