Australia’s Mexican food chain Guzman y Gomez (GYG) has done so well in Japan and Singapore it is planning to open more outlets in both countries this year.
It opened its first taqueria in Singapore in 2014, since adding three more, plus a second in Tokyo. It plans to open at least five more in Japan this year, plus two in Singapore.
“We have outstanding partners in both Japan and Singapore who are incredibly experienced in introducing Australian brands into their local markets,” says CEO Mark Hawthorne. “They are executing the brand to a very high standard.”
GYG opened its first restaurant in Sydney in 2006, and now has 73 outlets across Australia. It was named Australia’s fastest-growing fast-food brand in the latest Consumer Report on Eating Share Trends
The Mexican chain also opened a store at the revamped Broadway Shopping Centre level 2.
