Giant burrito fans on the westside of Fayetteville, rejoice. A new Flying Burrito Co. store is coming your way.

The local burrito chain announced today that they’re expanding into a space next to Gusano’s pizza at 3980 Wedington Dr.

Co-owner Archie Schaffer said he thinks the area is primed for some burrito action.

“The owner of the building actually approached us about the opportunity, and we just couldn’t pass it up,” he said. “We think it’ll be awesome.”

The space was most recently a mexican restaurant called T3kila.

The new store will make the fourth Flying Burrito location in Fayetteville. Archie and business partner Mike Rohrbach also operate stores in Springdale and Bentonville.

Archie said that he’s shooting for an early April opening date.

“We’re going to be updating folks on the progress on Facebook, so they can follow along there,” he said.
