Guzman y Gomez expects to roll a burrito every eight seconds for Cinco de Mayo

The Mexican food chain is offering $5 burritos, $5 burrito bowls and $5 coronas nationally.

Cinco de Mayo marks the battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, when the Mexican army defeated a much larger French force. To this day, in Puebla Mexico, thousands of locals gather and dress as French and Mexican soldiers to reenact the war. Around the world, Cinco de Mayo has become a festival celebrating Mexican culture, cuisine, cocktails, and music. 

This year, GYG Taqueria’s are expecting to roll a burrito every 8 secs. To put this into perspective, the shopping list for a single Taqueria includes the following fresh ingredients:

  • 500kgs grilled chicken
  • 140kgs grilled Aussie steak
  • 100kgs slow cooked beef
  • 100kgs pulled pork
  • 500kgs tomatoes
  • 600kgs vegetarian black beans
  • 200kgs avocados

GYG’s menu is based on traditional, delicious Mexican recipes, its stores burst with colour from individually commissioned artworks painted by Mexican artists. Out of the store, GYG supports a local Mexican orphanage, Mision Mexico, helping to provide the next generation of Latino children with a loving, secure family home.
