Plan Burrito is a unique and independent, quality food brand. We are a Fast-Casual operation offering dine in, takeaway and delivery services.

Plan Burrito was established in 2015 when we opened our first Mexican Street Food Taqueria in Loughborough. We now have 11 stores currently trading, with stores due to open - Canterbury, Egham, Gillingham, Suffolk and Cardiff.

With most of our ingredients being imported from Mexico we promise to serve truly authentic, high-quality, fresh and tasty Mexican street food.

Our aim is to be the leader and consumers brand choice in the Tex-Mex Street Food segment in any chosen local market.

Our franchise concept

Plan Burrito’s are situated in highly visible and accessible locations and in highly populated areas. Local high street, retail parades or high footfall neighbourhoods are all potentially great locations for a Plan Burrito store.

The décor and theme are centred around a new clean, and slick look, really making the stores stand-out. Customers find our stores attractive, atmospheric, and appealing. We have our own disco funk visual playlist playing in all stores which gives customers an uplifting feeling. We have become the place to visit at any time of the day for all age groups.

Plan Burrito has developed a detailed Initial Training programme for all new franchisees. The programme is designed to ensure you have the knowledge & know-how to operate your franchise store. During your training course you will work with the Management Team of Plan Burrito and their key personnel.
