Company Introduction

Velvet Taco is a temple to the liberated taco. We’re a one-of-a-kind taco concept serving a chef-driven menu in a unique & funky fast-casual setting. Founded on the idea that tacos don’t have to be associated with Tex-Mex cuisine and can be made with the same care and quality ingredients as fine dining, Velvet Taco is where “anything goes meets the art of the possible.” Some cool things about us: we use only the freshest ingredients available to offer a menu that explores the edge of multi-cultural boundaries, taking the taco to a whole new liberated level. We slow roast our own chicken and corn, use lots of booze in our margaritas, and make everything from scratch. Which means our food tastes really awesome. Our tacos may not change the world, but we think they’re pretty freakin’ great. The best part? Our kick ass Tribe is at the center of it all and we were even voted one of the Top 25 Best Brand’s To Work For in 2023 by QSR! Learn more about us at https://www.velvettaco.com/about-us/
