Mad Mex CEO, Therese Frangie, said, “Conference is one of my favourite times of year. Franchisees, employees and suppliers from across the nation come together to connect, grow, and celebrate our remarkable achievements.

The Golden Burritos go to our absolute top achievers! We’ve had a sensational year with awesome results all around, so picking the finalists and winners was not easy. We’re so proud of our familia,” said Therese.

The awards come off the back of some incredible partnerships and innovations this year, including the collaboration Smith’s x Mad Mex Hot Sauce Chips, and new menu item, Spicy Yucatan Chicken.

The past year has seen Mad Mex on a strong trajectory of growth with a focus on menu innovation and restaurant openings. The company plans to scale its restaurant footprint to 100 by 2026 and has seen same-store sales increase by an average of 25 per cent each month over the last 12 months.

Speaking about the winners and their success, Therese says, “I am so proud of everyone who has been recognised for their role in making Mad Mex the best premium QSR Mexican restaurant chain in Australia. I look forward to continued collaboration and partnership as we head towards another exciting year for the business.”
