About

 November 2018 Update:

We've been so excited about the outpouring of community support!  People all over the world have been weighing in on why they love the Burrito Thermos.  Here's a few of our favorites that capture the essence of what the #burritolifestyle is all about.

-Best,

Derrick & Ben

Our Story:

What is a Burrito Thermos?

Part protective covering, part funnel for a Burrito, this mono-use innovation takes your burrito experience to places you never thought possible.

Key to the Burrito Thermos experience is the chapstick-like twisting action.  This allows your burrito to be safely stored away during normal conditions.  Once your burrito craving strikes, just twist the bottom mechanism to deliver your perfect burrito directly to your mouth.  No messy hands.

Why use a Burrito Thermos?

Why put a helmet on when you ride a bike?  You don't have to have protection in this world, but you're always glad you did when something goes wrong.

Safety, protection, warmth, tenderness, comfort.  The Burrito Thermos is all these things and more.  

When user testing with burrito enthusiasts we kept repeatedly hearing the phrase "authentic simplicity".  Digging deeper, we realized millenials and Gen Zers wanted to put down the virtual world of their phone in order to authentically connect with people in simple ways out in the real world.  

The Burrito Thermos lets you get away from day-to-day distractions to enjoy your food with your loved ones.  And your pug.

If you've ever had to re-wrap your burrito in foil, you know it can get messy and cool down fast, spoiling the enjoyment of having a burrito later.  When you use a Burrito Thermos, you keep the heat in, the burrito packed tight, and also provide a slick protective casing.

Go farther with your burrito.

 With the Burrito Thermos, a delicate and soft burrito is no longer your limiting factor.  Your imagination is.  Your life is now at the beginning of a blank journal, just waiting for you and your burrito to fill in the pages.

Burrito-actualization meets self-actualization.  Your personal hierarchy of needs are all shielded by the Burrito Thermos.

Our mission

We know left-over food can go unloved and tossed away.  We fundamentally believe this food could be saved and eaten again if we could only provide a better post-meal meal experience.  Enter the Burrito Thermos: a limitless way to eat your left-over Burrito.

Risks and challenges

This is a big project with a really challenging undertaking. While we can't guarantee superior fit for all burritos, we can guarantee we will work tirelessly with the community to make sure the Burrito Thermos fits most burritos.
