PHOENIX — Family-owned Frutilandia is expanding in metro Phoenix with the addition of three locations in Glendale, Chandler and Mesa.

The Phoenix-based fast-casual restaurant recently debuted its headquarters and drive-thru service on Arizona Avenue and Ray Road in Chandler, according to a press release.

The location near 59th Avenue and Bell Road offers dine-in, to-go and online order service.

Frutilandia’s Mesa location at Baseline and Alma School roads, originally scheduled to open Thursday, will make its debut early next week, a spokeswoman said Tuesday. It will be the second location to offer drive-thru service.

The menu consists of Latin and Mexican drinks and foods ranging from $2.99- $12.99.

Options range from tropical frozen drinks, raspados, and agua frescas to carne asada fries, ceviche tostadas and specialty desserts like fresas con crema (strawberries and cream).

There are six Frutilandia’s across the Valley, including locations in Phoenix, Queen Creek and Tolleson.

The company revitalizes abandoned buildings, transforming them into stores others can potentially someday operate.
