TORCHY’S TACOS HOSTING A “THANK YOU AUSTIN” BLOCK PARTY ON MARCH 7TH
Celebration includes Free Tacos and Damn Good Fun
AUSTIN, TEXAS, MARCH 2, 2018 – Torchy’s Tacos, a fast-casual restaurant concept that serves innovative, inspired tacos in a unique dining environment, will be hosting a “Thank You Austin” celebration as they announce the closing of Torchy’s Trailer Park location.
“Without the love from the city of Austin, we would have never been able to make these taco dreams come true. To thank y’all for the years of support and countless tacos consumed, we’re revving up the Trailer for one last ride.” said Michael Rypka, Founder and Vice President of Marketing & Culinary at Torchy’s Tacos.
The block party is open to the public and will take place on Wednesday, March 7th from 5pm – 9pm at the Torchy’s Food Trailer located at 1311 South First Street in Austin. Attendees will be treated to free food and a Damn Good time. Torchy’s will donate $1 to the Texas School for The Deaf, for every taco that is served.
“The decision to close our Trailer Park location was not an easy one.” Rypka said. “We are proud of our humble beginnings and we will always stay true to running our business with the same entrepreneurial spirit we had in 2006. Reaching this point just proves that with passion, dedication, and a lil’ bit of taco magic, anything can happen. Our dreams of expansion were realized because the people of Austin embraced us with open arms. While the Trailer Park will be gone, our commitment to serving Damn Good Food will always live on. “

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. The founder, 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 over 50 locations throughout Texas, Colorado and Oklahoma.
