Caltex partners with Mexican fast food chain in Australia
Mexican fast food chain, Guzman y Gomez, will be opening the first of its drive-thru stores in 2017, with some located at Caltex petrol stations.
Guzman y Gomez, says the drive-thrus come out of customer demand and that 11 drive-thrus will open in New South Wales, Victoria and Queensland in 2017. A total of 38 new sites, which includes both drive-thrus and restaurants, will open across Australia within the next 18 months.
Steven Marks, Managing Director and founder of Guzman y Gomez, said customers have spoken and they have listened.
“Guzman y Gomez is here to shake up fast food and we’re showing customers they don’t have to compromise on quality for the sake of convenience and speed,” he said.
The chain’s partnership with Caltex will commence with the opening of four new “pilot restaurants” across Victoria and NSW, with the potential of additional locations after the trial.
The Caltex partnership announcement comes shortly after the petrol chain said it is looking for other profit avenues with the end of its alliance with Woolworths on the horizon.
