Guzman y Gomez Taquerias

Guzman y Gomez are a nation-wide chain of authentic Mexican taquerias created in 2006 by BWD for an American restaurateur, Steven Marks, who wanted to bring the first authentic, cheap and funky Mexican chain of true taquerias to Australia. Sitting somewhere between a fast-food takeaway and a sit-down experience the brief was to create something unique but with a hint of the shambolic roadside Mexican food stalls, along with a funky branding by The Creative Method, and a sense of it being in Australia and for Australian tastes.

The first location in Newtown, Sydney, was wildly successful. Over the past 7 years Guzman y Gomez has spread across Australia to 40 locations and also to Asia with its first international location opening in Singapore in 2013. The style and size of the restaurants has wildly expanded and evolved and GYG now has a huge and very loyal following.
