Steven Marks – Money Markets of Wall Street to Mexican Success Guzman y Gomez

Totally loved my natter with Steven Marks. Would have probably loved it even more in person with samples from the Guzman y Gomez menu I won’t lie… but sadly this ep was recorded during a lockdown. Steven has called Australia home now for quite a few years but as his accent might hint at, he is from the USA. A fantastic story from his early days hustling in Long Island, to uni and then his first job in the money markets on Wall St (straight out of a TV show). After a dalliance with a job in the UK Steven landed in Sydney with more than one business idea… but the one that stuck was Guzman y Gomez an incredibly successful Mexican chain with almost 160 restaurants in Australia, Singapore, Tokyo, and the USA. He tells his story with so much passion and a funny story or two (including one about pulled pork) you’ll be hard pressed not to feel inspired. He wasn’t sure what a ‘Hall Pass’ was but when pushed he came up with the goods and a great choice! I hope you enjoy the pod and bring on 'Taco Tuesday'.x
