We consider a branching system of $\mathbb{N}$-valued random walks with a random environment in location. We will give the exact limit value of $\frac{M_{n}}{n}$, where $M_{n}$ denotes the minimal position of the branching random walk at time $n$. A key step in the proof is to transfer our branching random walks with a random environment in location to branching random walks with a random environment in time, by use of Bramson's branching processes within a branching process" (1978).

Keywords: random walk in random environment, branching random walk, branching process, minimal position
