Babalu Tacos & Tapas is opening a new location at Eastgate Crossing in Chapel Hill.
Babalu has or will have locations across the Southeast in cities such as Charlotte, Atlanta and Knoxville.
Ben Miller, director of operations for Babalu’s parent company, Eat Here Brands, said that Chapel Hill fits just what the company looks for when deciding on a new location.
“This is the exact type of market they look for, exactly the type of food scene,” he said.
Chief Operating Officer for Eat Here Brands, Stan Stout, said that the company considered three main factors in deciding to come to Chapel Hill.
