Felipe’s $40,000 Scholarship

Son of a saint Scholarship

We would like to congratulate Javier Castellon, on being the inaugural recipient of Felipe’s $40,000 Son of a Saint Mentee Scholarship!

Javier has been a Son of a Saint mentee since 2011 and started working for our sister company @pinkberrynola at the age of 15. Now a rising senior with a 4.0 GPA, he brings a hard work ethic and positive attitude to every shift he works at Pinkberry Mid City. We could not be more proud of his success and where it will take him in his future, as he plans to study architecture in college.

“I couldn’t be more thankful for the community and opportunity that’s been provided to me.” said Castellon.

The Felipe’s and Pinkberry Nola teams have been long time supporters of Son of a Saint. This summer we began brainstorming ways to further support SOAS. We finalized a plan to offer a $10k a year college scholarship to a mentee who maintains at least a 3.0 GPA. We are currently in the process of selecting our next Son of a Saint mentee to be part of our scholarship program.

Son of a Saint exists to enhance the lives of fatherless boys through mentorship, emotional support, development of life skills, exposure to constructive experiences, and formation of positive, lasting peer-to-peer relationships.

“Turning our friendship into a partnership to benefit the growth and development of young men in New Orleans has been a wonderful experience,” said Lon Nichols, Felipe’s HR Director and 2014 SOAS Mentor of the Year. “At Felipe’s, we’re all about community and we strongly believe in the mission behind Son of a Saint. Whether working a shift here or participating in the program there, we’re ensuring we provide an opportunity for professional advancement and building confidence within the next generation’s leaders.”

Our Very Own Tequila

Felipe's Tequila

It’s safe to assume that Felipe’s fresh rocks margaritas are a defining characteristic of the Felipe’s experience. Now, after nearly 14 years of serving up our most authentic scratch-made cocktails, the Felipe’s Family is proud to announce the introduction of our very own Reposado Tequila.

Yep, that’s right! The Felipe’s Family has decided to collaborate with the tequila experts of Corazon Reposado. Last summer, members of our team traveled to Jalisco, Mexico to visit the Corazon distillery in an effort to find the best quality and most perfect taste for our exclusive tequila. After touring the impressive distillery, learning about their process, and an essential tasting session, our team found, what we believe to be, a quality tequila. We think you’ll approve of what we’ve come up with.

Felipe's In Mexico
To us, this collaboration makes perfect sense for a few very important reasons, outside of taste, quality, and the fact that it’s exciting to have your own barrel of tequila, Corazon has an interesting story. ‘Corazón’ is the Spanish word for ‘heart’, which we find quite fitting, as our team likes to consider tequila the heart of Felipe’s margaritas. In visiting their distillery, things just felt familiar. Much like Felipe’s, this tequila empire is family-owned and operated, and the president of their company is female. Corazón is the first tequila company to be recognized as a “Great Place to Work”, having been granted the Gender Equity Model (GEM) certification by Mexico’s National Women’s Institute, and we are so proud to partner with such a well-recognized team on this branded reposado.

Want in on the action? Ask your local Felipe’s bartender for a taste and opportunity to purchase your own bottle of our limited edition Felipe’s branded Reposado Tequila. Salud!

Celebrate Summertime With Watermelon Margaritas!

Summer is officially here, and right on schedule, so is the heat. There’s only so much you can do to combat the grueling effects of global warming. You could stick your face in a freezer, chew on ice, or maybe even have your kid fan you with large leaves,  however, these podunk methods really are no match for a fresh Watermelon Margarita from Felipe’s.

A phenomenal take on a Felipe’s classic, served on the rocks or frozen, our Watermelon Margarita is made with blue agave tequila, fresh-squeezed juices, and blended with a house-made watermelon puree. Served with a salted rim and garnished with a slice of watermelon, this heat-defeating cocktail is too refreshing to pass up.

Avoid freezer burn, chipped teeth, and potential child labor disputes and slide on into Felipe’s to defeat your heat frenzy with this cool watermelon retreat.

PRO TIP: Drink enough Watermelon Margaritas you’ll forget you were ever hot in the first place.
