case study: Zambrero Fresh Mex Grill

zambreroZambrero Fresh Mexican Grill commenced on a shoe string budget. Today they have grown to a national franchise group of some 30+ stores.

Creating a unique and diverse licensee experience is the highest priority for the executive management team at Zambrero.

The CEO of Zambrero, Mr Stuart Cook had undertaken vast amounts of research into the franchising industry. The one piece of constant feedback he received was that franchisees across the industry were disillusioned with the “mothership”.

His vision is to shake up the franchising industry and provide an experience of enormous value to his licensed store owners.

After evaluating and comparing multiple service providers, MYCFO Outsourced Solutions were selected as the partner of choice to engage with Zambrero for their outsourced solution.

Today MYCFO Outsourced Solutions directly manages the ongoing daily bookkeeping and accounting requirements for a select portfolio of Zambrero stores.

Activities include data entry through to Profit & Loss Reporting and BAS lodgement. We also liaise with the store owners external tax accountants to ensure a smooth process when lodging annual tax returns.
