Good news story – Blake Read supports healthcare and frontline workers during the pandemic

Coraggio Sydney member, Blake Read opened Beach Burrito with his wife and business partner Emma Read in late 2006. After arriving back from USA’s West Coast with a deep knowledge and appreciation for Mexican cuisine whilst acknowledging Sydney’s then lack of Mexican food and keen thirst for an ice cold frozen margarita, the Reads decided to combine the cuisine and the culture – resulting in the birth of Beach Burrito Co.

During the pandemic Blake and Emma innovatively identified ways to stay viable until the economy turned around. Community and giving back are in Beach Burritos DNA which led them to an idea to assistant support healthcare and frontline workers whilst keeping their doors opened.
