Costa Vida is at the forefront of providing customers with healthy meals in a fast-causal environment. Long gone are the days of feeling overly stuffed after indulging in a Mexican meal. With Costa Vida, you can forget about all the salt and fat of traditional Sonoran and Tex-Mex food. We’re committed to serving our guests delicious meals using wholesome foods and fresh ingredients.

With 71 percent of adults actively trying to eat healthier when dining out compared to just two years ago, it’s clear that Americans are looking for more nutritious options. But, this doesn’t mean they are willing to sacrifice taste for health – at Costa Vida they can have both.

Our meals are made from scratch, delivering options that not only taste better, but are also healthier for our guests. We combine the freshest fruits and vegetables to make sauces, marinades and entrées that will tempt every taste bud with their lighter, sweeter and fresher flavors. Our delicious menu will ensure that your guests will keep coming back for more.

Fun Facts About Our Food:

  • We slow cook 1.3 million pounds of pork cushion a year to make our signature sweet pork burrito
  • We make over 10,000,000 tortillas from scratch each year
  • We’ve sold over 2.5 million salads and 2.2 million burritos since opening our doors
  • We source our avocados from 100+ year old trees in Michoacán, Mexico


As an investor, timing is key. Emerging brands with few locations are a risk because their systems haven’t yet been validated. But on the other side, mature brands have limited territories, leaving investors with little room for growth.

Costa Vida is in the sweet spot for an investor/operator. We have 75 locations with more than 29 in the works, yet we still have widespread available territory in prime locations for the right partner. Specifically targeting:

  • Las Vegas, NV
  • Dallas/Fort Worth, TX
  • Houston, TX
  • Phoenix, AZ
  • San Diego, CA
  • Nashville, TN

Costa Vida was recently crowned to Franchise Times’ Fast & Serious rankings (ranked #15) as one of the industry’s smartest-growing brands and to the Inc.’s 5000 Fastest-Growing Companies list, demonstrating that Costa Vida is a brand to get in with now for the long-haul.


At Costa Vida, our recipe for success begins with location. That’s why we start the process by working with you to land prime locations in high foot-traffic areas. We have an innovative method that allows us to analyze sites based on an array of elements and ultimately gives us a complete understanding of where to best place your Costa Vida restaurant.

When getting your store up and running, you’ll get all of our tools, formulas and proven systems to succeed to protect your investment like:

  • Real estate site selection assistance
  • Store construction guidance
  • Ongoing operational support
  • On-site field support
  • Thorough training
  • Support with local marketing, PR and advertising including tools, coaching, and guidance
  • A regularly communicating Advisory Council
  • Grand opening marketing plans, tools and guidance

We know what it takes to build a best-in-class brand. Our executive leadership team has more than 100 years of combined experience, and we offer our partners guidance, support and stability. Our team leads with integrity and fosters a true partnership between themselves and Costa Vida partners. Meet our Costa Vida Executive Team
