It’s that time of year again, amigos! Every year for the past nine years we’ve hosted the Golden Burrito awards, as a chance to celebrate the restaurants and people that have been so committed to giving you the world’s best burrito, every time that you’ve stepped into the restaurant.

Deciding the winners this year has been incredibly difficult! Right across Australia and New Zealand Mad Mex has been blessed with a truly talented familia, whose commitment to customer service, healthy living and our Fresh Fuel For Life motto has been inspiring us on a daily basis.

Did your local Mad Mex pick up one of the awards? Here’s the full list, so if you spot a name on there that you recognise, be sure to say hola the next time you drop in for some mouth-watering authentic Mexican flavour:

“At Mad Mex, our franchisees really embrace the Mad Mex values and run their businesses with a values led ethos,” CEO Clovis Young said. “The Golden Burrito awards are our opportunity to celebrate what is a genuine culture of excellence, and recognise some of the most dedicated, talented and successful franchisees and Business Managers in the country.”

Naturally, the Golden Burrito was held as a virtual event this year, so that everyone could join in the fun, regardless of borders and restrictions. All winners will certainly be getting their unique Golden Burrito personally delivered!

We’ll be back next year (and hopefully holding our infamous fiestas in person again!). Would you like to be a part of it? Mad Mex has some incredible growth plans, and we need people at all levels of the business. Why not sign up for a fulfilling career in fast casual dining, and your own commitment to Fresh Fuel For Life could result in you holding up your own Golden Burrito soon enough!
