Artsy Fartsy Foodies: Serrano’s

Margaritas, homemade bean dip, hot tortilla chips, enchiladas, tacos…mmmm…

All of these amazing Mexican traditions can be found under one roof, Serrano’s Mexican Food. And to our delight, Serrano’s Mexican Food will be joining us for Eat Your Art Out Chandler on February 26, 2013.

In 1979,  Ernie and Eva Serrano were working in the family business, Serrano’s Clothing Store, in downtown Chandler. Using the same Serrano’s logo as their clothing stores, Ernie and Eva bravely opened their first restaurant just behind their clothing store. The restaurant quickly became a customer favorite.

Fast forward to today. The Serrano family now owns and operates eight restaurants with seven Mexican food locations in the Southeast area. Along with Ernie and Eva, six of their eight children are involved in the restaurants.

Envision colorful plates full of delicious Mexican food, your traditional Mexican music in the background and the table surrounded by great friends. That is exactly what you can expect each time you enter any of  Serrano’s restaurants. Serrano’s uses only the freshest foods, direct from our growers in Queen Creek and Willcox, Arizona. If you are looking to fill your belly with tasty, traditional Mexican food, this is your one stop spot!

Come out Tuesday, February 26th, 2013  and join them  for lunch or dinner (or both)!

25% of Sales will be donated to Chandler Center for the Arts.

CCA’s Connecting Kidz & Brighton Collectibles Win Big!

Each year Brighton Collectibles stores give back to their communities by holding a nation-wide fundraising competition between their stores.  The fundraising period stretches over a couple of months and each store location selects a charity within their community to benefit from their fundraising efforts. This year the Chandler Fashion Center store selected the Chandler Center for the Arts Connecting Kidz program to support.


We had a lot of fun working with the store manager and associates to get the word out about the fundraiser and it paid off…big time!  The Chandler Fashion Center’s location won their company’s philanthropic national competition by raising the most money.  They raised over $8,100 for CCA’s Connecting Kidz program!

As a result of their win, the other stores across the country sent their inventory of limited edition American Flag bracelets to the Chandler store to extend their fundraising initiative.  The store celebrated their win and the extension of their fundraising efforts this past Saturday at Chandler Fashion Center with a performance by the Mallet Masters.

If you missed out this summer, there is still time to purchase this bracelet. “Vote” for the Arts and the Connecting Kidz program in Chandler by buying the American Flag bracelet!  The remaining bracelets will be sold through October 27.

Call (480) 726-0263 to order yours today or stop by the store. Thanks Brighton! You guys rock!
