Have a hankering for more tacos, Squamish? 

Tacofino has announced it will open a local restaurant this summer.

Tacofino Squamish will be opening in the Squamish Station shopping centre, near Nesters Food Market, according to a news release. 

Tacofino was started as a food truck — Tacofino Cantina— by Kaeli Robinsong and Jason Sussman in a parking lot of a Tofino surf store back in 2009 , according to a Georgia Straight article. 

Today, the company includes the original Cantina, a fleet of food trucks and seven brick-and-mortar restaurants in Vancouver and Victoria.

The company boasts approximately 250 employees. 

The Squamish location will have 20 seats for indoor dining and will offer take-out of its tacos, burritos and appies. 

"Lunch and dinner menus with diet-friendly vegetarian and vegan options will be served," the release states. 

Tacofino’s décor and design are being completed by Shiloh Sukkau in collaboration with her colleagues, architect Nada Awadi from Studio Beige and graphic artist Courtney Presber

 "We are so excited to be a part of the Squamish community," said managing partner Gino Di Domenico, in the release. "I've been waiting a long time for the opportunity to add Tacofino to the beautiful community of amazing people and restaurants.”
