A note from our founder.

On a cold New Hampshire night back in 2009, I was crushing one of my wife’s homemade burritos when I realized this was a meal so perfect and so delicious it just had to be shared. Both Paige and our trusty dog, Red, agreed.

I launched Red’s to bring you burritos as amazing as they were when it all began that fateful night. Years later my team and I are more obsessed than ever with the craft of burrito making and the quality of our ingredients. We hope you love them as much as we do.

Mike Adair, Founder and CEO
