Barberitos is a franchise chain of Mission burrito-inspired restaurants based in Athens, Georgia, U.S.A. As of April 2014, 54 Barberitos restaurants are operating in the southeastern United States.[1] The company name is a portmanteau of Downing Barber, company founder, and burrito, a signature item at Barberitos restaurants. (Barberitos is consistently spelled without a possessive apostrophe.)

The original Barberitos, still in operation, is located in downtown Athens, near the University of Georgia's North Campus. Recently Barberitos began selling franchise opportunities. There are now approximately twenty restaurants in operation in Georgia, and about nine more in North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida, and Tennessee. The company mascot is Pepe, a grinning, anthropomorphic chili pepper wearing dark glasses and clutching a burrito.
