Felipe’s Mexican Taqueria to Break Ground at Kenilworth June 6th

Felipe’s Mexican Taqueria Restaurant (Felipe’s) will be breaking ground on their 3,500 square foot restaurant on Thursday, June 6 at 5:00 p.m. at the Shops at Kenilworth located in Towson, Maryland.  This newest location, the eighth restaurant for Felipe’s, marks a milestone of growth as they enter the Mid-Atlantic region.  The restaurant will be a freestanding building on the lower level of the mall.

“As a family-owned restaurant company, we are always excited to join a new neighborhood,” stated Pike Howard, Director of Finance and Development. “And growing up just minutes away from this new location, I’m excited to finally have the opportunity to invite guests to enjoy our delicious food and welcoming hospitality in my hometown.”

Felipe’s is expected to be up and running by early 2020 and visitors can expect the full Felipe’s experience. This includes their traditional scratch-made recipes such as the chicken tinga, carnitas, al pastor, featured on tacos, burritos, salads and more, plus a full craft margarita bar featuring their famous hand-squeezed key-lime margaritas, all inspired by various regions of Mexico. In addition to the decor, many of the restaurant’s fixtures, including the glassware, are handmade and imported from Tlaquepaque, Mexico.

Howard added, “Our mission is to throw a party for our guests every day.  We’re the perfect place to enjoy a wholesome meal with friends and family and an ice-cold margarita after a walk through The Shops at Kenilworth.”

Felipe’s is headquartered in New Orleans with additional restaurants in Naples, Fort Myers Beach, and Gainesville, FL, and Boston, MA.  Felipe’s is a fast-casual concept that provides a festive atmosphere offering a menu prepared from scratch using fresh, all-natural ingredients from authentic Mexican recipes.  All restaurants also feature a craft cocktail bar with a special focus on hand-squeezed key-lime margaritas.  MacKenzie Senior Vice President/Principal John Harrington represented Felipe’s during lease negotiations for this location.
