zambreros 50 million


The rapid growth of the highly successful Zambrero QSR franchise has achieved another major goal, 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 the 50 Million Meal milestone overnight 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 CEO of Zambrero Australia Matthew Kenny.


“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.”
