Our story

Founded in October 2007, Tortilla is the UK’s largest fast-casual Mexican restaurant group, offering a high-quality, affordable and freshly prepared California-style Mexican menu.

Tortilla was founded by Brandon and Jen Stephens in 2007 after they identified a gap in the UK market for a high-quality, fun and welcoming fast-casual Mexican restaurant that was reminiscent of the taquerias of their native San Francisco—the self-proclaimed burrito capital of the world.

Following a period of impressive growth, Tortilla launched its first digital offer in 2010 with online ordering.

In the decade since, Tortilla has grown to become the UK’s largest fast-casual Mexican group and operates a multichannel order strategy that enables customers to enjoy its products across dine in, self-serve, take away, meal kit, click and collect and delivery options.

This is supported by more than 80 Tortilla restaurants across the UK, 10 sites in the Middle East, cloud kitchen estate and partnerships with a number of leading delivery platforms. In 2022, Tortilla announced the strategic acquisition of Chilango Limited, strengthening the Group’s position as the UK’s leading fast-casual Mexican brand.

While the brand has expanded to more than 80 sites and 1,000 employees globally, Tortilla’s 2007 mission of ‘making life better with burritos’ – providing a fun, high-quality and affordable grab-and-go lunch or evening meal – remains the same.
