Enchilada Express Abilene TX

Our Story:


My name is Chris Norton and I am the founder of Enchilada Express. It all began as an idea during my senior year as a Business Management major at Abilene Christian University. I had always dreamed of finding a way to express my young entrepreneurial spirit and decided I wanted to take some risks and jump head first in the restaurant business.  I just had to figure out what exactly that meant and what I could do that was different from everyone else.


I was born in Weslaco Texas, a small border town and have always had a deep passion for Mexican food. After four years of college I loved the idea of food delivery but was absolutely sick of pizza being the option. Then one day it was like BOOM! What if I started a Mexican restaurant that focused on fresh and delicious food that also delivered it right to your door?


After several months of really contemplating the idea the name Enchilada Express just seemed to be perfect and I decided to go for it. After borrowing some money from family and the bank in addition to my entire life savings we rented out a location and in October of 2010 we opened our doors! Enchilada Express had gone from a crazy idea to reality. We are so thankful for everything God has done for us and all the loyal customers who have supported our dream over the years.


Our story isn’t finished yet and we can’t wait for there to be an Enchilada Express near you!
