Welcome To Currito

Currito is a national franchise chain operating in nine states: Arizona, California, Indiana, Kentucky, Massachusetts, North Carolina, New Jersey, Ohio, and Washington. The origins of Currito were difficult to track down, even for a sneaky Internet hombre (me).

Headquartered in Ohio, Currito's first year of operation was difficult to glean. Their website was written in Latin as recently as July of 2007. No, Currito does not predate English; websites are often mocked up with Latin before the real content is written. By August 2007, the site noted seven locations in five states. So we'll guess they opened doors spring / summer 2007.

A few options here.

  1. Urban Dictionary said 'Currito' is what you get when you try to spell 'Burrito' with T9 on certain mobile phones.
  2. A Spanish-English Dictionary states: currito, -a, masculine or feminine noun, 1. (ordinary) worker (informal) (peninsular Spanish)
  3. The Currito site repeats the phrase "Currito serves the cure for the common burrito." Oh? I didn't know it was infected.

The Currito menu (official pdf) features chicken, steak, or tofu fillings in one of many worldly wrap styles: Teriyaki, Mediterranean, Cajun, Buffalo, and Bangkok. Thankfully they also have what they call Uncured The Classic, which comes with beans, cilantro lime rice, cheese, and salsa. They also sell a bunch of smoothies.

Looks identical to the The Wrap... errr... Boloco.

Yeah the similarities to Boloco are puzzling. The menus are almost identical, and the websites have a very similar feel.

given point #3, I wonder if it's pronounced cure-ito or if it's rhymed with 'burrito.'

You obviously don't know how to use the internet:
