Mesquite Fresh Street Mex, the rapidly expanding concept specializing in inventive and modern Mexican cuisine, just opened its eighth Arizona location for the family-owned business at 1730 W. Happy Valley Road.

“We are thrilled to expand the Mesquite brand in Arizona with our eighth location,” says Ahmad Alatrash, co-founder of Mesquite Fresh Street Mex. “North Phoenix is a thriving area with strong businesses, services, and a great community around it. We look forward to connecting with residents and sharing our authentic-meets-modern Mexican concept with the neighborhood.”
Mesquite Fresh Street Mex, formally Mr. Mesquite, is on an aggressive growth path opening four new locations in the last year with more on the horizon. Founded by brothers Naser and Ahmad Alatrash, the Mesquite brand specializes in bringing Mexican street food to neighborhoods across the Valley and generating jobs for dozens of residents. The company currently employs 150 Arizonans and they are looking to hire 30 dynamic employees at the new North Phoenix location.

“We are seeking ambitious and driven individuals ready to join a collaborative team,” says Naser. “We pride ourselves in a family-driven environment and place a large emphasis in creating a supportive and fun atmosphere for our staff.”

The 1,930 square-foot Happy Valley location boasts a spacious dining room with ample seating. The signature custom-built mesquite grill featured at all Mesquite locations uses real Mesquite wood chips, giving the fresh meat a unique and smoky flavor, according to Naser. The cuisine is focused on incorporating the highest quality ingredients prepared fresh daily into every dish.
