ROGERS, Ark.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Tacos 4 Life, an Arkansas-based taco restaurant franchise, has announced the groundbreaking of its newest location in Rogers, Arkansas. This site will be the seventh corporate store in Arkansas, and the third in the northwest region of the state. The restaurant is expected to open in early 2018.
"We are so excited to have a new Tacos 4 Life location settled in Rogers," said co-founder Ashton Samuelson, who created the company with her husband Austin. "Our customers are dedicated to our delicious food, eclectic style and chef-inspired menu so we are confident this new location will fit right in with the culture of NWA."
The groundbreaking is scheduled to occur in the upcoming weeks, and will be located at 4195 Pinnacle Hills Parkway in Rogers. Construction is expected to start in the next 30 – 60 days. Tacos 4 Life's newest addition will aid in continuing its mission of fighting to end childhood hunger around the world.
"The timely expansion of our Rogers location means we not only get to expand our corporate footprint, but also take one step closer to ending childhood hunger," said co-founder Austin Samuelson. "With every new store opening, we have the opportunity to provide meals to thousands of starving children around the world through Feed My Starving Children. Rogers is the perfect city for our new location because of its family-oriented community that can truly get behind our mission."
Northwest Arkansas is home to many large corporate headquarters including Walmart, J.B. Hunt, and Tyson. Tacos 4 Life considers the substantial growth in NWA, and growing demand for fast-casual restaurants the perfect environment for its store to thrive.
About Tacos 4 Life
The first Tacos 4 Life Grill opened in Conway, Arkansas, on June 9th, 2014, but this is not where the story begins.
Long before Tacos 4 Life opened its doors, Austin and Ashton Samuelson had a heart for the hungry. In 2009, they learned that over 18,000 children were dying worldwide each day due to starvation and hunger related causes. What surprised them is that the problem was completely preventable. Starvation is nothing more than a distribution problem. This simple fact moved them so much that they knew they could, and should, do something to help solve this problem. Thus, Tacos 4 Life was born.
The Samuelsons believe that God is up to something big and can use Tacos 4 Life, which exists to serve amazing food and to empower communities to fight to end world hunger, to help solve the world’s most solvable problem. Tacos 4 Life is a highly-differentiated restaurant that offers chef-inspired, award winning menu items served in a unique environment. Our philosophy is based on delivering an unforgettable experience . . . great food, genuine service, and a mission focus that changes the world with every meal.
