Baja Fresh’s History
The first Baja Fresh Mexican Grill opened in 1990 in Newbury Park, California when founders Jim and Linda Magglos triple mortgaged their home to finance the venture. Their business model focused on farm fresh ingredients and unprocessed foods. The first franchise restaurant opened in 1995 and by 1997 there were 31 locations.
There were 249 locations by 2002 when the company was purchased by Wendy’s International for $275 million. However, it floundered over the next few years despite opening roughly 50 more locations and was sold for $31 million to a private investor group led by David Kim. In 2012 Chuck Rink took the helm and is now CEO of Baja Fresh. The chain now operates in approximately 200 locations.
