Bucking Bull has about 30 stores across Australia; most of which are based in the Brisbane and Perth areas.
According to Executive Director at Aktiv Brands, owners of Bucking Bull, Dean Vella, the chain's menu "has resonated best with customers located in regional cities".
"We thought it was about time we took our boutique offering to the people of the Fraser Coast," Mr Vella said.
The franchise is on sale for $100,000, and was first published on March 31 this year.
A Burrito Bar spokesperson also cited the popularity in regional towns as a reason for the Mexican restaurant coming here.
"Finding a franchisee usually takes anywhere from six weeks to two months," they said.
"We're looking for somebody who's hungry for success, and loves burritos."
With more than 20 stores already opening, the spokesperson said there hasn't been difficulty in finding a franchisee in the past.
"We've had a few people talking to us about it already which is very exciting," he said.
