Our Story

A Family Business with Some Flavor

It all started in 1984, by Lenny and Linda Fresquez founding the company with an Arby’s in Las Vegas, NM. They successfully grew that brand regionally and eventually sold it to another franchisee. From there, they purchased Albuquerque local favorite, Mac’s Steak in the Rough in 1991. During this time, they also managed the food and alcohol concessions at Expo New Mexico (formally New Mexico State Fairgrounds), Fresquez branched out and entered into airport concessions in 1996, subsequently launching restaurant and catering services in the Albuquerque and San Antonio Texas airports. With the experience gained as concessionaires, it was a natural progression to expand Fresquez Concessions into other airports.

Today, Fresquez Concessions operates 20 restaurants in three states, New Mexico, Texas, and Colorado. Outside of airports, the Fresquez family operates Albuquerque favorite, Mac’s Steak in the Rough and a Village Inn in Rio Rancho, NM.

The Fresquez family commits to providing growth opportunities for all of its team members, vendors and partners. In our business practices, we seek to give back and reinvest into the communities where we are present. Fulfilling a simple passion to serve all those that we come in touch with.

Airport Concessions

In the Albuquerque International Sunport, Fresquez Concessions operates; Schlotzsky's, Rt. 66 Lounge, Comida Buena, Tia Juanita’s Pronto, Watch! Sports Lounge, La Trattoria, Panda Express (Licensee), Tia Juanita’s Full Service, Black Mesa Coffee Co., and Rio Grande Brew Pub and Grill. In El Paso, we operate a Quiznos.



Run by a native New Mexican Family, the Fresquez companies know how to establish a home-like feeling in all our restaurants. We take this passion into our recipes to provide quality food at each of our brands.
