In just over 10 years, Zambrero has expanded from a solitary Canberra restaurant to one of the country’s fastest growing franchises, with its 150 store to be followed by another six restaurants in South Australia, Tasmania and News South Wales before the end of this year.
“We attribute this continual success to our innovative healthy Mexican cuisine, amazing brand culture, passion for customer service, and strong franchisee partnerships which complement Zambrero’s philosophy of serving good food that does good,” said Karim Messih, CEO, Zambrero.
The fast food operator offers a combination of healthy menu items served in a contemporary quick service restaurant, and is planning to venture overseas with its Mexican quick service concept.
Zambrero was founded by Dr Sam Prince in 2005 at the age of 21 while he was studying medicine.
“I’m a thrilled to have to reached one hundred and fifty restaurants and am really proud of the Zambrero team,” said Dr Prince. “With the opening of every restaurant we take one more step on the road to end world hunger and to making my vision to donate one billion meals by 2025 a reality.
“For Zambrero, the future means ending world hunger and inviting the world to join us in our movement, either as a happy customer, a franchise partner or a future employee, as we continue to expand rapidly.”
More than 11 million meals have been donated to date, supported by Zambrero’s international and Australian distribution partners, Stop Hunger Now and Foodbank.
