TORCHY’S TACOS THROWS OPENING PARTY WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 15th
Public Preview to Include Free Tacos, Drinks, and Fun
COLLEGE STATION – September 17th, 2014 — Torchy’s Tacos, the popular taco shop, is set to open their doors for a limited time on Wednesday, October 15th to celebrate their first College Station location.
The 4,560 square foot store is located at 1037 Texas Ave South, is the one of the largest Torchy’s locations to date and will create around 100 jobs for the College Station area. Interested applicants are recommended to visit the location anytime Monday through Friday between 9AM and 6PM for on-site interviews.
The new hot spot has also been one of the most talked about for fans and the company alike. “We’ve been looking for the right spot in College Station for years,” says Founder and VP of Culinary and Marketing, Michael Rypka, “and we’ve found it. We couldn’t be happier to be here.”
To celebrate, Torchy’s will be hosting a party the night before the official grand opening to include complimentary tacos, libations, and entertainment. From 6:00PM to 9:00PM on Wednesday, October 15th, fans of the brand are welcome to visit the location for two (2) free tacos per person, two (2) drinks of choice, and overflowing amounts of Torchy’s signature Chips & Green Chile Queso.
For those who cannot make the party (or brave the line) on Wednesday, Torchy’s is also offering free breakfast tacos through 10AM on grand opening day Thursday, October 16th. Beginning at 7AM, visitors can receive one (1) free breakfast item of their choice as either a dine-in or to-go meal. Favorites include the Monk Special (scrambled eggs with green chilies, bacon and cheese on a flour tortilla) and the Ranch Hand (grilled skirt steak, eggs, and Diablo hot sauce), although Torchy’s full menu is available all day.

About Torchy’s Tacos:
Torchy’s Tacos started in 2006 with a mobile trailer, a little red Vespa, and a man with a passion for good food. Eight years ago, Mike Rypka left an executive chef position to chase his dreams by investing everything he had into Torchy’s Tacos. With a new, experimental menu ready to serve but no mouths to feed, Rypka jumped on his Vespa and started throwing out samples in an attempt to draw customers to his trailer. Before he knew it, people were rallying beside the taco stand hollering, “damn these tacos are good!” and the Torchy’s Tacos’ legacy began. Today, Torchy’s Tacos operates 25 locations throughout Texas.
