About us

In 2003, restaurant veterans Bob Phillips and Keith Goldman purchased California Tortilla, a two-unit fast casual concept in Maryland. Since then, the franchise has expanded to over 50 locations in Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Delaware, New Jersey, Florida and the District of Columbia, serving fresh, made-to-order, delicious, award-winning signature burritos, quesadillas, salads, and other Cal-Mex favorites. Recently, the international expansion drive has begun.


In 2013, California Tortilla opened its first overseas branch in Doha, Qatar.  This franchise is locally owned & operated by Roots for Hospitality & Services LLC. Since then, the franchise has expanded across Qatar, with more countries to follow suit.

We are also proud sponsors of the World renowned ReverseWalk™ annual event in Qatar – click here for more information.
