We are about more than just delicious, Mexican inspired food made with healthy ingredients. We are a way to feel good inside, by helping in our mission to stop world hunger, one meal at a time.
We are Feel Good Mex.
With our Plate 4 Plate initiative you can fill your karma and your belly in one stop. Every burrito or bowl you buy, means one meal donated to someone in need across the globe. With our partners Rise Against Hunger our goal is to donate 1 billion meals by 2025. It's a win-win. The more Zambrero you eat, the more we all help the hungry of the world, and the better we all feel.
As a fresh-faced, ambitious 21-year-old medical student, entrepreneur Dr. Sam Prince recognised that Australia lacked a choice for healthy, fresh Mexican cuisine.
In 2005, whilst still studying, he decided to shake things up a bit and started doing things a little differently, opening the first Zambrero in his hometown of Canberra.
But Sam’s extraordinary story does not stop there. With parents raised in rural Sri Lanka, Sam was always motivated, through his parents' life experience, to start a business that would help those less fortunate than himself.
Sam wanted to serve good food that did good. Which led him to create an initiative that would in turn deliver millions of meals to people in need the world over and make an impact on the state of world hunger. He called it Plate 4 Plate.
Zambrero was born down under in Australia by entrepreneur Dr. Sam Prince.
From humble beginnings, fast forward over a decade and Zambrero is now Australia’s largest Mexican franchise chain with over 200 restaurants within Australia and across the globe with restaurants in New Zealand and Ireland.
