Burrito fans, your day has arrived.
Thursday is National Burrito Day and Mexican channels will be touring the entire Enchilada and giving them great offers, including buy-one-on tickets and discounts.
The feast of prepared food takes place on the first Thursday of April each year.
According to an analysis of Womply, a small business software provider, National Burrito Day is at the center of the pack for the year 's sale days in Mexican restaurants, ranking 158th out of 158 days.
"On National Burrito Day, you can enjoy your favorite packaging without being swallowed up by big crowds," said Brad Plothow, vice president of branding and communications for Womply. "The pedestrian traffic in Mexican restaurants is basically flat, so get a burrito at your favorite restaurant."
And what is the most popular type of burrito?
According to Grubhub, bean burritos were the preferred type as well as the No. 1 food in 2018 based on orders placed on the website and the mobile food ordering and delivery service application.
