Tortilla Ranch Mexican Grill, an Overland Park-based fast-casual restaurant, is set to open up its second location in the Mission Crossing shopping center in Mission.

Where at? The restaurant is taking over the storefront at 6029 Metcalf Avenue most recently occupied by Ni Hao Fresh.

Why Mission? Dustin Franzen, a Tortilla Ranch managing partner, said they wanted to expand to a new market not too far from their original location at 8617 College Boulevard.

  • Franzen said the fast-casual restaurant’s owners landed on Mission because they feel they can fit in well in the area and grow their catering potential.
  • The new location plans to officially open in early October, Franzen said.

Key quote: “What made Tortilla Ranch great is how much of a loyal following we had during our COVID-19 experience,” Franzen said. “I think that’s really allowed us to feel confident and very proud of our brand moving forward.”
