Wrapitos conquers hunger, one tortilla at a time


Wrapitos is an IBC group filling student’s stomachs with wraps and burritos.

Mason McClellan, a junior studying business management, said the name Wrapitos is a combination of wrap and burrito, the two menu items served

McClellan’s IBC group was assigned to create a pre-packaged food company.

“We saw a need for students wanting breakfast burritos during later hours of the day,” McClellan said. “We also wanted to provide healthier options, such as lunch wraps, that would help us stand apart.”

Over the course of the semester, Wrapitos has refined its business strategy, McClellan said. Wrapitos is located in front of the David O. McKay Library, next to the Manwaring Center. However they also deliver to students who text in orders.

They have recently set up a self serve booth in the Ezra Taft Benson Life, Agricultural and Biological Sciences Building. They leave their burritos in a warmer with prices and a cash box on a table.

“We want to trust our customers on campus,” McClellan said. “We have found that when we offer our trust to the customer in this way, they don’t take advantage of that trust.”

Wrapitos allows students without cash to pay later.

“We have IOU cards that a customer can fill out by providing their name, phone number and what products they took, and they can pay later,” McClellan said.

McClellan said Wrapitos is on track to meet the revenue goal for the semester.

“Students have responded very well, McClellan said. “We have continually increased the quality of our products to better meet the needs of the customer.”

To create the burritos and wraps, half the students in the group prepare the ingredients in the evening so the other half can prepare the food in the morning for sales.

“I love all of the Burritos they have,” said Taylor Mansfield on Wrapitos’ Facebook page. “It’s filling, delicious and quick.”

McClellan said he has enjoyed his time working on Wrapitos and has learned so much in this real life setting.

“I think one of the greatest life skills I have learned is that there is always a way to make it happen,” McClellan said. “There is usually always a way to accomplish anything you want and any goal you have.”

Wrapitos is open daily from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in front of the McKay Library. Menu options and pricing can be found on their Facebook page.
