Franchise opportunity arises

ALBANY could become the newest home of Mexican food franchise Zambrero if the right person is found to operate it.

The Australian company listed an expression of interest for a franchise partner in Albany just 17 days ago online.

Franchise and Leasing Executive Ethan Flowers told the Weekender that Albany and Kalgoorlie had been identified as two potential regional locations to expand too.

“We’ve done quite well in WA so we’re looking for a franchise partner in a regional area, and Albany and Kalgoorlie are the first places we are looking at,” he said.

“Zambrero isn’t a normal fast food business; we have a mission to end world hunger, so we are looking for people who share that passion.”

Mr Flowers said a strip mall format of Zambrero, similar to Subway, would cost approximately $450,000.

However, he said the company was “quite flexible”, happy to help sort out a simple kiosk-style setup, all the way to the “top end” drive-thru format.

“A lot of people in WA are familiar with Zambrero, so if you want to see it in your own backyard, please get in touch with us,” Mr Flowers said.

A potential location for an Albany Zambrero has not yet been identified as finding a franchise partner is the first step.
