Ranked among the best in the city, Bell Street Burritos sells 300 burritos a day. But back in 2010, owner Matt Hinton was just an adjunct professor of theology and religion trying to mimic a recipe from the much-loved Tortillas.
Bell Street Burritos owner Matt Hinton confirmed today that the Howell Mill location of his fledgling burrito chain will close soon and reopen in a nearby location shortly thereafter. The property, which Hinton rents, is in the process of being sold to Advance Auto Parts. The terms of the current lease end in about six weeks, Hinton said, "Hopefully we can stay a little longer, but I don't know."
Until now, burritos were pretty much a sideline gig for Matt Hinton, a young theologian who coped with shrinking hours at Morehouse College, where he was an adjunct professor, by starting a home delivery business. Hinton has many callings. He is, among other things, a director of documentary films, a record label owner, a pressman for his wife’s letterpress shop—and now a brand-new restaurateur.
