As a global fast-food business, Guzman y Gomez is driven by its mission to redefine the fast-food industry. From their commitment to a 100% Clean menu to their dedication to fresh Mexican cuisine, GYG consistently pushes boundaries by offering convenient, delicious, and freshly prepared food that is also good for you. Bring on the guilt-free burritos. 

The driving force behind the new GYG Leopold franchise is Geelong local Todd Knight, a first-time franchisee with a deep passion for delivering exceptional fresh Mexican food to the local community. 

Excited to open his first GYG restaurant in the area he grew up in, Todd shares his enthusiasm, saying, “I am thrilled to open a GYG drive-thru in Leopold and can’t wait to introduce the locals to our Clean fast food with authentic Mexican flavors. We are confident that this brand-new drive-thru will be an absolute hit!”

Offering freshly prepared options suitable for every lifestyle and meal, the menu spans burritos, burrito bowls, $3 tacos, nachos, nacho fries, Cali burritos (filled with skin-on fries!), quesadillas, enchiladas, salads and a bunch of kids items.

There’s also a variety of options for vegetarians and vegans, as well as gluten-free and low-carb options.

Whether you’re looking to kick start your day with a protein-packed brekkie with a barista-made coffee, a fresh and Clean lunch or dinner for the whole family, GYG has you covered

The opening of Guzman y Gomez in Leopold is exciting news for locals who have been waiting for a taste of authentic Mexican food in the area. Since beginning in Sydney in 2006, the chain’s popularity across Australia – with more than 150 restaurants – is a testament to the quality of their food and the commitment to their values.

For those unable to make it on opening day, you can score yourself a burrito completely free by signing up as a new GOMEX user on GYG’s new app.
