Tijuana Flats Uses Hot Sauce to Support Habitat

Tijuana Flats came to the Concord Mills area just a few months ago, but immediately got plugged into the community. They reached out to our Habitat even before they opened their doors and wanted to get involved, possibly with a Veteran Build. We do not currently have one planned, but we do have a Veteran living in one of our transitional housing apartments.

They decided they wanted to help, so in June, a portion of every bottle of hot sauce they sold they donated to Habitat Cabarrus. It is part of their fundraising effort called, "Share The Love Feel The Burn."

In fact, since day one, Tijuana Flats has always given back to the community. In January of 2007, they created the Just in Queso Foundation to give back even more. Much more. They have given over $2,100,000 to date to help those in need.

Thanks to the June fundraiser, nearly $500 was raised and the Veteran in that apartment “spent” the money at the ReStore on a new mattress, box spring, as well as a loveseat, chair and ottoman.  

Employees from Tijuana Flats didn't stop there though. They showed up at his apartment to unload the truck and help set up the bed frame.  They also want to go out to the site and work at some point in the future.

Habitat Cabarrus is grateful for the generosity of Tijuana Flats and their local staff for their quick donation and volunteer contribution. Stop by for a meal or some hot sauce soon! They are located across the street from Concord Mills at 8680 Concord Mills Blvd., Concord, NC 28027,
