    More about Steven & brand overview
    Steven Marks: Founder & Global CEO of Guzman y Gomez 

    When New Yorker Steven Marks settled in Australia in 2002, he saw a gap in the Australian market for fresh, fast, delicious Mexican food. He opened his first Guzman y Gomez restaurant in Sydney’s Newtown in 2006 with Co-Founder Robert Hazan. Guzman y Gomez has today grown to more than 125 restaurants in Australia, Tokyo and Singapore; and has more international expansion on the horizon.

    Steven has been passionately involved in every stage of building this rapidly growing business. Guzman y Gomez is reinventing fast food through the quality of its fresh produce; investment in technology, speed of delivery, and the authenticity of the Mexican experience. 

    Steven grew up in New York City, graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with a Bachelor of Arts in International Relations and Economics and worked 10 years in finance (SAC Capital, Cheyne Capital) in the US and London. 

    When Steven relocated to Sydney in 2002, he launched and sold several successful businesses. Today Steven is committed to taking the Guzman y Gomez experience to the world... and reinventing fast food along the way.

    The Australian and New Zealand Chamber of Commerce in Japan and the Odawara Hakone Chamber of Commerce & Industry (小田原箱根商工会議所), in conjunction with Melanie Brock Advisory, will be hosting the “Aussie Fair” in Odawara taking place 27-28 July. As hosts for the Wallabies training camp during the RWC19 and the Olympics and Paralympics in 2020, we wish to celebrate by coming together and enjoying Aussie food, drinks and other products.

    Come and join us and network with the Odawara and Hakone Chamber members. We will also have a surprise visit by some special sports stars!

    Entry is free but products will be on sale and there for trial, so bring lots of cash!

    The event will be held inside the Odawara Hakone Chamber of Commerce & Industry's event hall, with around 400 guests expected to attend over those two days (and perhaps more, given the proximity to the Odawara Lantern Festival taking place on 27 July).

    For those who have products to sell, sample or display, or would like to talk about their company at one of the booths, please let us know if you are interested to participate by Thursday 27 June by emailing and include the following details:

    - Your name
    - Your business and product you would sell and what equipment you will be using
    - Whether you would like to serve your products on the day at Odawara, or send your products to be served by an Odawara event staff member.
