Guzman y Gomez opens its first ever restaurant in South Australia!

Residents of South Australia, your prayers have been answered! Australia’s favourite Mexican, Guzman y Gomez has just opened its first ever store in Adelaide today.

The flagship store is located on King William Street, Adelaide, right in the centre of town and will feature two levels, state-of-the-art design and high tech flourishes to create a totally fresh dining experience for hungry locals.

Guests will be treated to a GYG experience with all the trimmings, including cutlery, plates and table service. Not to mention it’s the first restaurant to launch with the whole kit and kaboodle including breakfast, coffee, the Minis range, Fries, Cali Burrito, Nacho Fries and Make it a Meal.

Yep, it’s like a GYG from your dreams.

With upstairs seating, the food will be transported via a dumbwaiter (no, not a stupid person, one of those cool contraptions that whisks food from one level to another) and beacon table locators will mean your meal will be under your nose faster than you can say give me a Burrito. Talk about techy.

The move comes as part of Guzman y Gomez’s push to reinvent fast food for the 21st century and to meet overwhelming demand from local residents.

GYG Founder, Steven Marks said:

“Our Facebook page has been inundated with people asking when we’ll open a store in South Australia — our customers have spoken and we’ve listened. We’re so pleased to be announcing the new GYG opening in Adelaide. We love our customers and can’t wait to bring our healthy Mexican to the fine people of South Australia. This is one of many up and coming developments we have in the pipeline, so, watch this space.”

The new store is in partnership with Peregrine Corporation who will work alongside GYG to manage the business.

Peter A.Piliouras, Chief Operating Officer, Peregrine Corporation said:

“We are very excited to be bringing the authentic Mexican taste of Guzman y Gomez to South Australia. We love the flavour and the fun of GYG and we are looking forward to sharing this with all Adelaidians. Our first location on the corner of King William Street and Hindley Street is perfect for anyone who wants to come and try this fresh and delicious Mexican food. We are proudly employing 50 South Australians at 33 King William Street, on top of the 1000 jobs that Peregrine Corporation has created in the last two years as well as the $100 million we have invested into the state.”

Enjoy Adelaidians, you deserve it.
