MORRISBURG — Morrisburg has gone Mexican — with a fast-food franchise in the growing market segment officially unwrapped  in the village.

Although operating at its 123 Main Street East location in Morrisburg’s East End Promenade since last month, Quesada Burritos & Tacos celebrated its formal ribbon-cutting Jan. 13.

Franchisees Harvey Bhavsar and Swapan Randhawa were welcomed to the local business fold by South Dundas Chamber of Commerce of representative Donnie Bowes and the Morrisburg Business Improvement Area’s Adeana McQuaig-Bedard.

On behalf of the federal government, MP Guy Lauzon’s chief of staff, Adrian Bugelli, presented a scroll to the proprietors in recognition of the milestone.

“We have two great franchisees here within our system who have grown great roots throughout Eastern Ontario, well respected within the Quesada community, and I’m so happy that they’re here to serve you folks,” said Quesada Burritos and Tacos area developer Stephane Charbonneau.

Testament to the exploding popularity of Tex-Mex food, the Canadian-based burrito chain only started in 2004 but now boasts over 60 locations.
