Phil’s Fresh Food now EVOL Burritos

A local frozen burrito company is changing its name after bringing on a new investor to the company. Boulder-based Phil’s Fresh Foods is now EVOL Burritos – a joint venture between Phillip Anson’s company and Brendan Synnott’s Burrito Investment Group (B.I.G.) LLC. Synnott co-founded Bear Naked Granola, which he sold to Kellogg in 2008. Synnott said he was eager to get back into brand-building and saw great potential in the frozen burrito category. “When I found Phil’s, partnership was a no-brainer – people have no idea a frozen burrito can be this great,” Synnott said in a press release.
