On Wednesday night, we received an EPIC request from a GYG fan. It was funny, it was genuine and he showed he was one of our biggest fans and made us an offer we couldn’t refuse:
Australia, meet Cal:
Cal’s 21 and works in media. He’s ticking off every country on his bucket list, but no matter what country he goes to, he just can’t find Mexican food as good as GYG. No burrito bowl compares to a burrito local from his local Guzman y Gomez in Albany Creek. He misses his regular chicken burrito bowl (with brown rice and guac!) almost as much as he misses his beautiful mum:
We set Cal a goal. Get 3,000 comments and 1,000 shares by November 26 and we’ll fly him home for that burrito and week-long catch-up with the family!
We really should have set the goal higher because Cal SMASHED this out of the park in less than 24 hours!
It’s gone CRAZY viral all across the country:
Australia has been commenting, liking and hashtagging things like #BringCalHome and #PutYourBurritosOutForCal
Here’s where it’s about to get you right in the feels. Cal’s brother and his fiancé had a baby 2 weeks ago:
AND his best friend’s 21st birthday party is on December 8th. We couldn’t have Cal miss out on this, so we’re going to make sure he’s here for that too!
On November 30th, Cal will be at our 100th restaurant celebration and Free Burrito Day in Burleigh Heads, which is a lot closer to Mum & Dad’s than London is! He’ll also get a free family lunch at Albany Creek!
Understandably, Cal is thrilled!
We’ve got a few more surprises up our sleeve, so stay tuned!
Cal, we can’t wait to meet you and we can’t wait for you to be reunited with your beloved GYG chicken burrito bowl, with brown rice and guac!
