The University of Canberra Brumbies have linked with Zambrero as their Official Quick Service Restaurant partner for the 2015 Super Rugby season after the two organisations came to an agreement on Thursday.
Born and bred in the ACT, Zambrero has grown from its first shop front at Lonsdale Street in Braddon to now boast more than 50 restaurants Australia wide. Throughout the ACT alone there are 12 restaurants, with others popping up in other NSW regional centres such as Wagga Wagga and Albury.
UC Brumbies General Manager Simon Chester said it was fantastic for the club to link with another organisation born in Canberra and now well known throughout Australia.
“It’s a pleasure to announce this relationship between two organisations who are proudly Canberran and achieving great results throughout the country,” Chester said.
“Zambrero is a healthy and affordable way to enjoy delicious Mexican-style food. In a tough market they have stood out above the rest since their founding in 2005 and it’s exciting to see them stamp Canberra on the map the way they have.
“We’re looking forward to the positive outcomes this opportunity will bring for both the UC Brumbies and Zambrero over the next 12 months.”
Both Zambrero and the UC Brumbies can draw plenty of comparisons, with the restaurant and rugby club are both big supporters of the community.
Through its Plate 4 Plate initiative, Zambrero remains heavily humanitarian. For every burrito or bowl purchased at Zambrero, a meal is donated to someone in need in the developing world or in an underprivileged Australian community.
Their scrumptious range includes nachos, tacos, burritos and the famous dos capas.
