Bob’s 2nd Birthday

April 5th, 2010

A momentous occasion passed by on Thursday, April 1st.

The lovable little spatula named Bob, who is responsible for mixing up each and every burrito that crosses through our assembly line, turned two! For two whole years Bob has been hard at work mixing burritos and we thought it was only right to throw him a big birthday celebration to show how much we appreciate his work!

If you stopped into a participating Panchero's location on Thursday you might have seen the restaurant decked out with balloons, wrapping papper and maybe even birthday cake! We had a great time celebrating Bob's Birthday on Thursday and thought we would share some of those good times!

Check some photos and videos from Bob's Birthday this year.

(Might need to tilt your head on this one, sorry.)

Bob is turning 2!

March 1st, 2010


The people have spoken and the winner is in! We had a lot of great entries for Bob's birthday, but only one of them can be standing at the end as the winner.

Congratulations to Aaron Rosenberg for submitting his "remembering day one" card! It racked up the most votes on Facebook and is the winner!

Take a look

Aaron Rosenberg

Aaron will be taking home a Week worth of FREE BURRITOS and a DVD player! Congrats Aaron!

They grow up so fast, don’t they? Seems like only yesterday he was mixing his first Panchero’s burrito.

Bob is a pretty special guy at Panchero’s. He is that little tool responsible for making sure you have every ingredient in every bite! So what I want to know is, how are you going to wish Bob a Happy 2nd Birthday?!

Will you sing him Happy Birthday?

Will you make Bob a Birthday card? (he’s turning two, remember)

Maybe you want to stand on the table in the break room at work and scream “HAPPY BIRTHDAY BOB!!”

It’s up to you. But whatever you choose to do, we want to hear about it!

This contest is all about sharing, even the prizes! (no you don't have to share your prizes) If your entry is voted as the winner you will be taking home a DVD player and at LEAST a week (7) worth of free burritos. Why do I say at least? Because for every three entries submitted for this contest, I will throw in another day (1) of free burritos. So, the size of the prize is really up to you guys!

Here is how to enter:

It’s easy, just make a video, snap a picture or write a post. Then tell me about it! There are numerous ways to tell me; Pancheros is on Facebook, Twitter and we have our own Blog (it's what  you're reading right now). Once you have created your happy birthday masterpiece just tell me where to find it! Upload a twitpic or a twitvid, put a video on YouTube and send me the link! Post photos and videos to my Facebook fan wall. Any way you can think of to tell me about your masterpiece, I’m all ears.....and eyes.

Bonus point

You can submit more than once! Is your spirit just too much to contain in a single song?! Is a birthday card just not enough for you? I can respect that. Provided that your submissions are a different format (picture,video,text...etc) I will accept as many as you will give me.

So, here is all the dirty details

I will be accepting entries from March 1 - March 19 (5:00cst) The panchero’s employees will vote on what we consider to be the top 5 entries. Those entries will be posted online and you guys will have the chance to vote and decide who is taking home the DVD player and burrito cards. Voting will take place March 22 - March 31 (5:00cst) The winner will be announced on Bob’s Birthday, April 1st!

Open to any and all questions:




Good luck!

Life-Size Bob and Other Panchero’s Shenanigans

April 8th, 2009

Last week we asked the owners and managers of Panchero's stores nationwide to help us celebrate the first birthday of Bob the Tool (if you're not familiar with Bob, check out some of the posts on this blog and learn what it means to "bob your burrito"). There were some employees out there that, well... REALLY got into it.

It would be a shame not to share these gems with all of you. So here is some more footage of just what went on last Wednesday. Ever seen a life-size Bob the Tool? And he sings? Now you have.

Bob also duels...

Bob’s Birthday Bash

April 2nd, 2009

The balloons were ballooning, the cake was delicious, and the burritos, BOBBED. Thanks to everyone who came in and helped to celebrate Bob the Tool's first birthday yesterday. We hope you enjoyed the food and the freebies (to all of you that won them).

Here are some photos to help preserve the memories. Oh, the memories.

The pre-party setup

Check out the sweet hat

Bob the Cake

Burrito cake!

And presents. Loads of presents.

I'll put up a few more sweet pictures when I have them. Thanks again!

Bob’s Birthday

March 31st, 2009

Tomorrow is the big day! We are celebrating the first birthday of Bob the Tool. If you've been into Panchero's before, you may have seen bob, the little spatula-like guy at the end of the serving line. He enjoys lazing away in stainless steel tubs but he really thrives on mixing it up (your burrito, that is). When you finish choosing all your yummy ingredients, just say "Bob my Burrito!" and watch him go to work.

Lucky Bob... he is a noun and a verb. Nobody "Joels" a burrito. at least not that I'm aware of.

So come celebrate with us and with Bob! If you come in tomorrow, April 1st, and say "Bob my Burrito!" you will get your soda (or "pop" for us strange folk who prefer the term) free with your meal. You might even be one of the lucky party people to get some free Bob party gear! Feeling lucky?

It should be a great time! No fooling! (forgive me for that one)
