Between the 7th – 14th June Cheltenham celebrated The Burger Festival. Chiquito got involved by giving samples of all burgers from Sweet Chilli Jam to our delicious Veggie burger. We gave out sombreros and gave samples of our amazing mocktails while the sun was shining. There was also live music and a bouncy castle to keep all entertained! Pictured here is Beth from the Cheltenham restaurant.
On Saturday the 14th of June, all of our Midlands restaurants held a charity breakfast to raise money for a great cause! Guests got a free Breakfast and in return we asked for a donation to our brand charity. As an area, we managed to raise an amazing £850! Thanks to everyone who attended!
On Saturday 7th June, we visited the World Party event in Swansea. We gave out Mocktail samples, vouchers, Mexican Flags and Moustaches. The Council Run event was a mini festival to celebrate all different cultures and food around the world. They also had live bands, music and dancing all day! Pictured is Molly and Rochelle from the restaurant and we managed to get a picture with Samba Tawe, a local Swansea Samba Band.
Our restaurants really got in the spirit of Cinco De Mayo on Monday 5th May. Hagley Road in Birmingham raised nearly £200 for British Heart Foundation with fancy dress and guess how many Chilli's in the jar. Well done to Heather, Adam & Cindy and the team. We also had sampling and Mexican flags in Swindon then Cinco Sampler tasters in our Cardiff and Cribbs restaurant. Don't forget we still have an amazing Cinco De Mayo Competition running until 22nd May where you could win a party with 10 guests at Chiquito. Enter here!
Our restaurant in Huntingdon had great fun at the Fun Day on April 21st. Mayor Bill Hensley and our lovely waitress Jade pictured above. We gave out 500 goody bags and attendees to the runners that took part in the charity run. Well done to all that got involved- what a great cause!
As well as serving up fabulous Cocktails and amazing Tex-Mex dishes, our restaurants were busy raising money for our charity British Heart Foundation over the Easter period. Bringing our running total to nearly £7,000 so far! We had face painting, fancy dress and prizes galore! Well done to the team in Camberley who raised the most money with £338!

In the budgets released recently, the Chancellor gave us a penny back in every pint. Chiquito are pleased to be passing this on to Leukaemia Lymphoma Research – we’ll donate 1p to this fantastic cause for every pint of beer we sell between now and the end of the year. This helped us to raise almost £7,000 for MacMillan by doing this last year, which shows pennies really do add up! So when you are next in Chiquito and enjoying a cold beer, then you'll be donating towards this amazing cause. Watch this space to track how much we raise each month!
Last weekend the Chiquito Angels paid a visit to our Sheffield restaurant. Amy & Jodie were the lucky winners and got their bill paid for by the Angels! Keep an eye on Twitter or Facebook to see where we are visiting next!
Manchester Printworks have now reopened their doors following its mexcellent makeover. Now there’s even more space and a bigger bar for you to really party the Tex Mex way! With 2 floors, the upstairs is now available to hire for either business meetings in the day time or private functions, just speak to a member of the management team.
Last year can only be described as a phenomenal year for Tiger Bay Brawlers. The Cardiff-born team are hoping to continue this level of progression in 2014 and Chiquito can’t wait to help support them on their journey!
