Zambrero to double store count

Zambrero Campaigne Civic Canberra Lisa Lois PhotographyMexican food chain, Zambrero, will open its 71st Australian restaurant next week, with plans for 150 by the end of 2015.

Restaurant 71 will open on February 25 in Riverside, Brisbane.

Zambrero has plans to notch up 100 openings by June 30, and 150 by the end of 2015.

Karim Messih, GM of Zambrero, says the chain’s continual success is driven by a strong franchising and business model that complements Zambrero’s philosophy of serving good food that does good.

“We’re not just a healthy quick service restaurant, we’re a humanitarian enterprise committed to tackling world hunger and we’re experiencing increasing demand from prospective franchise partners empathetic to our Mexican with a mission philosophy,” Messih said.

How Zambrero achieves its humanitarian aims is via its Plate 4 Plate charity initiative, which means for every burrito or bowl sold, one meal is donated to someone in need around the world or living in an underprivileged Australian community.

Since Zambrero was founded by Dr Sam Prince in 2005, Plate 4 Plate has resulted in more than 4 million meals being delivered to those who need them the most.

Distribution is managed by Stop Hunger Now overseas and within Australia by the country’s largest food relief agency, Foodbank.
