Christine developed new operating systems to manage the increased volume and built a management team to implement them. They focus on improving consistency and enhancing the level of service. Christine and Chef Hernandez also developed a new menu maintaining many of the old favorites, while adding more fresh seafood and several of Chef Hernandez’s specialties from his hometown, Mazatlan.
In 2005, the restaurant had grown to such a success that Bill and Christine decided it was time to expand. The second location, El Encanto Dos, opened in January of 2006. Dos sits on a large piece of property where there is room for an organic garden. It serves the same great food, in a similarly authentic atmosphere. And, now, in 2009, we have opened our third location, El Encanto de la Fuente, in Fountain Hills, Arizona.
Thank you for joining us at El Encanto today. We hope everything was perfect for you and that you’ll come to share our love of Mexican food and culture.
