ARAMARK and Trinity University Partner with Local Mexican Food Restaurant

Taco Taco Café’s arrival on campus provides additional dining variety for students

SAN ANTONIO -- Trinity University and ARAMARK are pleased to announce the addition of Taco Taco Café to the campus community.  The new Taco Taco Café will open in the fall of 2013 and will be located at The Commons Food Court, inside the Coates University Center. Students, faculty, staff, and campus visitors will be able to enjoy a variety of authentic Mexican cuisine including the brands' popular El Taco Norteño, puffy tacos, and award winning breakfast tacos.

"Over the years we have heard that students have frequently eaten at Taco Taco Café. It was a collaborative effort to find the right option to bring the local Mexican favorite to campus. Taco Taco Café will be a wonderful addition," said Miguel Ardid, food service director, ARAMARK/Trinity University Dining. "All of the ongoing enhancements we have made to the dining program are based on student feedback and are designed to provide students with a dynamic dining experience."

For over a decade, Taco Taco Café has been a local favorite offering traditional Mexican cuisine. Their savory recipes are made with the freshest ingredients and are handcrafted by owner Helen Velesiotis. The restaurant has received numerous accolades from local and national publications. Voted "Best Tacos in America" by Bon Appetit on the Food Network, the brand has also been featured on Guy Fieri's show, "Diners, Drive-ins and Dives." Locally, Taco Taco Café has been voted as the "Best Breakfast Tacos" by the San Antonio Current, San Antonio Magazine, and WOAI.

"I'm really excited that ARAMARK and Trinity decided to bring a local business to campus rather than just giving us a national chain restaurant. Taco Taco Café has delicious Mexican food and it's something special we have that other universities don't," said Jordan Dougherty, a Trinity University sophomore.
