The story of Taylor's Tacos
Taylor's Tacos is just a hard-workin' love story --- What began as a fun way to enjoy "Taco Tuesday" + "Steak Night Friday" has blossomed into a pop-up service catering company with a whole lot of soul!
Taylor was always a street food + taco lover, and decided that she wanted to take an authentic Mexican street style taco and add her own flair. The first Taylor's Tacos was introduced at her dad's backyard birthday party, and afterwards she spent two years were spent perfecting the recipe. After fine-tuning the perfect mash-up of Mexican and SOUL flavors, the business was self-launched in 2016 at a self- curated show called The VIBE Collective.
Shortly after, Taylor met and fell in love with the first lady of Taylor's Tacos; Maya. Her impeccable food knowledge, passion, expertise, and food service experience helped shape the company into what it is today. Maya even brought along "Salivate" the new sister company to Taylor's Tacos.
Over 600 events later, Taylor's Tacos offers both small and large scale catering for events of all kinds. Taylor's Tacos are sold everyday at Dock's Fish in the Bronzeville neighborhood of Chicago. You can also find them six days a week for happy hour at Persona Lounge in downtown Chicago. To top it all off, Taylor's Tacos is also CPS Vendor Certified!
