Tacos 4 Life opening in St Louis
Tacos 4 Life, a fast-paced, casual restaurant dedicated to ending world hunger, will open a location near St. Louis in O’Fallon this year.
“We’re excited to serve the St. Louis community with this new location and our first,” said Austin Samuelson, co-founder of Tacos 4 Life, in a company news release. “Entering a new market with new franchisees who are focused on our mission-driven work is even more special. We pride ourselves on working with people who truly believe in what we are doing, who we are passionate about – and Matt and Jacy Rose are two of those people. “
In 2017, on the recommendation of a family member, the Roses visited Tacos 4 Life for the first time in Little Rock. They immediately fell in love with her and started exploring franchise options, the press release said. After months of planning, they chose O’Fallon and began working on the expansion and opening plans.
“Tacos 4 Life came into our lives at the perfect time as we prayed for an opportunity to help the less fortunate,” Matt Rose said in the press release. “The mission and the food are something we knew we wanted to share with our family and friends right away, and we can’t wait to open our doors to the community for them to share in this special place with us can.”
Tacos 4 Life opened its first location in Conway, Arkansas, in 2014. For every order of taco, salad, quesadilla, rice bowl or nacho sold, 24 cents go to Feed My Starving Children, the non-profit partner of Tacos 4 Life. The chain has operations in Arkansas, Texas, North Carolina, Oklahoma, and Tennessee.
