CEO Cesar Olivo on Salsa Fiesta's Foray Into Fort Lauderdale and New Daily Breakfast, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, and Vegan Options

Since the economy got flushed down the toilet, the fast-casual sector has been on the rise. It seems like once a day, a new burger joint or burrito place is opening its doors -- it's almost not even news at this point.

There are, however, some exceptions. Late last month, Salsa Fiesta made its way into downtown Fort Lauderdale. The fourth location in Florida, its Lauderdale location is the first and only to offer breakfast, seven days a week. Breakfast burritos: Maybe it's just us, but we think that deserves some recognition.

Clean Plate Charlie spoke to Salsa Fiesta founder and CEO Cesar Olivo about the new spot, the most important meal of the day, and allergy-conscious options.
