CARLSBAD, CA-Rubio’s Restaurants Inc. today announced that it has entered into a development agreement with S&A Enterprises to develop eight Rubio’s Baja Grill restaurants in the Portland market over the next three years.

“We are very pleased to have on board a quality group to develop the Portland market,” says Rubio’s VP of Franchising John Ramsay. “S&A Enterprises’ principal, David Shaw, has significant experience in the ownership, operation and development of Burger King restaurants, and his partner has experience operating Chevy’s Fresh-Mex restaurants. We believe this diversity of experience will be a real asset in developing and operating Rubio’s Baja Grill restaurants.”

“We feel that granting area development agreements in new markets to proven, multi-unit operators of other restaurant concepts will further our goal to be a national leader in our segment,” says Rubio’s president/CEO Ralph Rubio.

Rubio’s Baja Grill has 124 restaurants in Southern California, Sacramento, Nevada, Arizona, Colorado and Utah.
