Comess Group, with close to 350 establishments, is the Spanish organized foodservice group with most experience in the sector and the greatest international presence.
The group’s origins
The first Lizarran opened its doors in 1988 in Sitges. Taking inspiration from the gastronomy and eating habits of the north, they made the pincho (skewered appetizer) their identifying feature.
In 1993, Cantina Mariachi was born, pioneer of Mexican gastronomy in the Spanish market, followed by Pasta City in 2001. Lizarran opened the doors of its first international restaurant in Andorra in 2007, the same year in which Comess Group acquired the brand.
Don G was born in 2010 in Vitoria, to cover a market niche as yet unattended to in the organized hospitality sector. Quality authentic food, classic recipes from popular Spanish cuisine, prepared and served fast. In 2016, Don G was incorporated into the Comess Group brand portfolio.
In 2017, BeZumm was added to the portfolio, as well as the Spanish and Portuguese operating rights of Pieology, the U. S. brand with the greatest potential for growth.
We want to offer our patrons a variety of restaurant options that will meet their needs across all eating hours and accompany them throughout their life.
We aim to be the world-leading Spanish group in organized hospitality in the franchise category through a multi-brand strategy, exceeding 500 establishments in 2020.
Our core values are excellence and good management, sustainability, profitability, job creation, quality and innovation, internationalization, and the satisfaction of our patrons, employees, and franchisees.
"Bringing people together through gastronomy"
Excellence and good governance
pillars upon which our corporate governance rests:
Transparency, the fulfillment of our code of ethics, and carrying out our business activity in a socially responsible and sustainable way are the pillars upon which our corporate governance rests.
We attempt to carry out our business with the least possible environmental impact.
Energy-saving and food waste reduction are among the actions we systematically include in our value chain.
We generate employment through the growth of our network.
Quality jobs which offer people of different profiles and with different needs the opportunity to integrate into the job market, be they students looking for part-time employment, first-time workers, or experienced professionals.
The franchisee is a key partner for the success of our business.
His gain is our gain. That’s why we focus our efforts on making our business more and more profitable, by driving sales while improving cost efficiency and optimizing management thanks to continued support and assessment.
We export Spanish gastronomy to the rest of the world.
We take our cuisine and eating style to countries across 4 continents, and with it the “Spain” brand. Our calling is to eventually have a presence in the greater part of all the countries in the world.
Quality and innovation
Being a leader implies being at the vanguard, innovating.
Our approach to innovation is not only product-oriented, with a department of chefs constantly developing new products and improving recipes to adapt to consumer demands while maintaining the highest quality standards; but also focuses on new formats (booths, food trucks, etc.) and new venues (airports, train stations, etc.)
Patron, employee, and franchisee satisfaction
A company needs to be more than just profitable—it should improve the environment in which it operates. We put all our efforts into satisfying the needs of our patrons by being the surest and simplest option for investors, and into offering our employees a place where they can grow, develop, and establish a good work-life balance.
