THE Bathurst franchise of a Mexican fast-food chain with a conscience is due to open next week.
Zambrero is expected to open at 68 George Street next Wednesday, December 7.
The restaurant has been advertising for staff and promoting its opening specials on its Facebook page.
Zambrero is the brainchild of Dr Sam Prince and prides itself on serving “healthy, modern and fresh” Mexican fare, including burritos, nachos, tacos and quesadillas.
But its real point of difference is the Plate 4 Plate program aimed at reducing hunger across the globe.
“For every burrito or bowl (all the goodness of a burrito without the tortilla) a customer purchases at Zambrero, a plate of food is donated to someone in need in the developing world,” the company’s website states.
“At Zambrero, we also want to make a difference to people doing it tough in Australia.
“So, for every super food muesli bar or packet of black rice a customer purchases from our retail range, Zambrero will donate a breakfast meal to an under privileged Australian community.”
