Australia-based Guzman y Gomez, the nearly 200-unit fast casual founded in 2006 by CEO and native New Yorker Steven Marks, is opening its second U.S. location in January 2023.
The first opened in 2019 in Naperville, Illinois, and the second is coming to Chicagoland’s largest suburb, Schaumburg, located at 795 E. Golf Road.
“Guzman y Gomez has always had a vision to reinvent fast food because we genuinely believe that fast food doesn’t have to mean bad food,” Marks said in a company press release. “We also want to provide the highest quality menu items and ingredients at a great value with the speed and convenience of traditional fast food. Some call our concept fast casual but there’s nothing casual about GYG. We’re a fast-paced and high-energy team that wants to give our guests a phenomenal and memorable experience. We will never compromise on the quality of our food and I really hope our locals in Schaumburg come along to our Grand opening so we can showcase our incredible authentic Mexican flavors and show everyone our GYG energy and love.”
Guzman y Gomez serves burritos, bowls, nachos, tacos and quesadillas.
