Sombrero Mexican Food Franchise For Sale

Open An Authentic Mexican Restaurant Franchise

"San Diego-Style" Mexican Food Franchise

Sombrero Mexican Food Franchise

Sombrero proudly serves San Diego-Style Mexican food, which is a unique blend of Authentic Mexican Classics, Fresh Baja influences and the San Diego lifestyle.

The Original Sombrero opened in the College area of San Diego back in the 1960’s. This is where many of Sombrero’s recipes were created, as well as where Founder, Javier Sr, learned the family Mexican Food business. In 1984 Javier reintroduced Sombrero to San Diego, this time as the quick service operation that it is today. Javier set the standards high since the beginning by using only the freshest quality ingredients, utilizing homemade “casera-style” cooking techniques, and always maintaining clean, well kept restaurants.

Although San Diego is the epicenter for quick service Mexican Food, Sombrero has seen great success. Sombrero continues to stand above its competitors by providing a consistent quality experience to guests in each location, use of quality products, and ongoing product innovation. Sombrero proudly serves guests the best ingredients available, featuring fresh Choice Angus meats, top quality cheese, a completely trans-fat & lard free menu as well as many healthy ordering options.

Sombrero locations typically open early for breakfast and close late, with many locations offering 24 hour drive-thru service. Each location is furnished with a self serve beverage area which includes a variety of Aguas Fresca, as well as a Fresh Salsa Bar, featuring our famous Salsas and Hot Carrots, all made from scratch!

Today, Sombrero has nearly 20 Southern California locations, and continues to grow!

Sombrero proudly serves San Diego-Style Mexican food, which is a unique blend of Authentic Mexican Classics, Fresh Baja influences and the San Diego lifestyle. In line with this style, or menu offers a variety of choices for every taste, such as Tacos, Burritos, Tortas, Tostadas, Salads, Bowls, Breakfast Burritos and Plates as well as Catering Options.

Our top sellers include the Classic Carne Asada Burrito, Rolled Tacos and our signature “Special Burrito” topped with our one-of-a-kind homemade “MOLE” sauce.

We serve FRESH hand-made guacamole, hand shredded Beef, as well as made from scratch rice & beans. Other unique customer favorites are our Carne Asada Fries, Chile Rellenos and our Chipotle Chicken bowl….just to name a few! At Sombrero, our mission is to serve quality, great tasting Mexican Food quickly.

We have succeeded in serving a great menu by following two important rules:
