Meet Fernando Andere, food entrepreneur and co-founder at Burrito Brothers, for an evening of Mexican food tasting and startup success stories.
Entrance by ticket only - Limited number of early birds now available.
About Burrito Brothers
Fernando and Cesar were born in Mexico but grew up in California, where they worked summers at their aunt’s take-away burrito shop in San Francisco's Marina district. Their paths separated them for a few years; Cesar continued his studies and worked in other Mexican restaurants in the area while Fernando traveled and opened a family-owned chain of taco stands in the heart of Mexico, amongst other things.
In 2013 they reunited in Lausanne, where they’ve taken their passion for burritos and together with the help of their family and friends created the Burrito Brothers, an oasis of fresh, authentic California style Mexican food. Now, Burrito Brothers have grown to be one of the leaders of the Mexican food scene in Switzerland with 4 locations across Geneva, Noville, the EPFL Campus and Zurich.
What to expect
Over the meetup, Fernando will share with us their journey to success, the challenges faced, the opportunity grasped and the secrets to their delicious Burritos as well as treating us to a Burrito Brothers tasting session.
Tickets include a Burrito Brothers tasting session and a soft drink of your choice.
