California Tortilla’s History
In 1995 a little company would come into existence in Bethesda, Maryland. A place of origin that may be a bit unusual given that it was formed under the name California Tortilla, or CalTort to its friends. This franchise was started with the goal of re-imagining Mexican food and bringing a delicious experience to its customers. Their food combines traditional Mexican flavors with cuisine from around the world, presenting its patrons with such unique offerings as the Korean BBQ Tortilla, their Honey Lime, and the one that sets an entire state to yowling, the California Screamin’, all guaranteed to bite you right on the tongue.
They are dedicated to more than just delicious food; they want to bring to the environmentalism of California to the world through the Green initiative. Everything they use will degrade right back into the environment, leaving it spotless.
