When you become a Guzman y Gomez franchisee, you become part of our family.
That means we have your back! We are as committed to helping you thrive as we are to serving the highest quality food and spreading the love of Latin culture in Australia. We look after our people.
Market entry, opening and ongoing support
With 80 percent of Guzman y Gomez taquerias owned by franchisees, we have had a lot of experience setting our team up for success.
During every step of the process, Guzman y Gomez Head Office will be there as you establish your taqueria. You’ll receive support on everything from the initial design and layout of the taqueria to training up your team and media planning for opening day.
We will help you set up your supply chain, point of sale configuration and IT systems. Once you’ve gotten everything off the ground, a Guzman y Gomez business coach will continually check in to make sure you’re receiving the strategic support you need.
We didn’t become the fastest growing fast food business in Australia by accident! The GYG family comes with some pretty impressive business know-how.
Guzman y Gomez ANZ CEO Mark Hawthorne has previously held roles as Managing Director of McDonald’s UK and New Zealand and you will also have the chance to benefit from the expertise and experience across our board of investors including:
- Peter Ritchie, who established McDonald’s in Australia and across Asia-pacific.
- Steve Jermyn, previously McDonald’s Australia CFO
- Guy Russo, previously managing director of both McDonald’s and Kmart
We also believe we have a lot to learn from the accomplished franchisees who join our family. Our family summit day is a highlight of the year. It’s a chance for the head office team and franchisees to meet together and discuss our stories and ideas for how we can make GYG even better.
We want to hear your big ideas— they might just have a part to play in the future of the business. It’s this unique entrepreneurial spirit that defines culture at Guzman y Gomez.
No matter how much we grow, we believe that we can still run Guzman y Gomez like a family business.
Become Numero Uno
For us it is simple… We want to be numero uno at everything we do, and we won’t settle for anything less.
Guzman y Gomez is leading the fast food industry by proving you can serve high quality food, at fast food pace. Our relentless commitment to never compromising is what has earned us a loyal community of passionate guests and advocates. Not convinced? Just ask the 200,000 Gomex users who can vouch for just how much our customers love us.
We are looking for franchisees to join our family who are just as hungry to become numero uno as we are. If you have an entrepreneurial spirit, a head for business, a big heart for hospitality and want to join a winning team that’s redefining what fast food means to Australians, get in touch today.
