Zambrero Donates 50 Million Meals
To Those In Need
The rapid growth of the highly successful Zambrero QSR franchise has achieved another major goal, today hitting the milestone 50 Million Meals donated to helping end world hunger.
Every burrito or bowl purchased at Zambrero sees a meal donated to someone in need through its Plate 4 Plate initiative. Plate 4 Plate has been at the heart of Zambrero’s approach since its inception in 2005. Founder Dr Sam Prince opened his first Zambrero restaurant in his hometown of Canberra when he was a 21-year-old medical student wanting to serve good food that did good.
His vision is now global with Zambrero now in Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, Ireland and the United States with more than 215 restaurants. Each has an in-restaurant counter clocking up in real time the number of burritos and bowls sold and, in turn, the number of meals donated.
Zambrero partners with Rise Against Hunger globally and additionally Foodbank in Australia to achieve its mission of ending world hunger.
“Achieving today the 50 Million Meal milestone is largely due to the passion, enthusiasm and commitment of our Franchise Partners and our people who have made sure that we reached it despite the multiple challenges presented as a result of COVID restrictions and shut-downs.” said Matthew Kenny, CEO Zambrero Australia.
“This reflects the drive, success and growth of our franchise partners in selling 50 million burritos and bowls to help us reach the 50 Million Meals milestone earlier than we anticipated.“
We are so proud to share that since Zambrero Mildura opened in late 2017, the local community support of this Zambrero has alone helped donate approx. 200,000 of these meals.
“We also can’t forget the most important part of this journey, our customers – without them, none of this would be possible. We are sincerely thankful for their ongoing support and look forward to many more meals donated together in the future.”
“Zambrero is proof that values-driven businesses can be very successful while also driving positive change in the world. We’re going to celebrate 50 Million Meals for a little while but we are also looking towards the goal of 1 Billion Meals donated.”
A big congratulations and Thank You to Mildura from their local Zam Family for their amazing support in enabling this to happen.
