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.
"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.”
