District Taco, a leading fast-casual Mexican restaurant in the D.C. Metro area, is opening its first restaurant in the Philadelphia area on November 27th, 2017. The restaurant is located near the King of Prussia Mall in the new King of Prussia Town Center, a 230,000+ square foot development located in The Village at Valley Forge. The restaurant, at 100 Main Street Suite 130, will join Wegmans, LA Fitness, Fogo de Chao, and Founding Farmers in the community which also includes the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and five residential developments.
This marks the first official expansion into another market for restaurateur Osiris Hoil and his rapidly growing restaurant group. The company, which now employs almost 400 people and operates 12 locations throughout D.C, Virginia, and Maryland, expects to expand by two additional Philadelphia locations and add another 100 employees in the region by the end of 2018.
The Grand Opening for the King of Prussia location will be on Monday, November 27th at 12pm. The first 100 customers in line will receive a District Taco goodie bag full of swag and prizes. A portion of the day’s profits will go to Turning Points for Children, a local organization that brings social and health services to vulnerable people. Patrons can expect a large celebration and are encouraged to get their place in line early.
“We are extremely excited to work with a great team and to open our first location in the Philadelphia area,” says Hoil. “This is a great community and we feel our brand will be successful.”
Hoil and the District Taco team are confident that the people of King of Prussia will quickly become fans of the Yucatan stylemenu that includes seafood specials and all-day breakfast. Additionally, the team is excited about what the future holds for District Taco in the Philadelphia area and beyond.
“District Taco was born 8 years ago with just a taco stand and we now have 12 stores and a goal to keep growing aggressively,” says Hoil. “What does it take to get there? Having awesome food, hard work, persistence and extraordinary people!”
In addition to the Grand Opening celebrations, District Taco is holding a contest for local artists. District Taco invites artists to submit a design for a wall mural to be featured in their new restaurant. Participants must submit their designs by Friday, November 24th at 5pm. The winner will not only have their art featured as part of the décor, but will also receive a prize package including discounted meals for a year. Rules and guidelines can be found on the website.
CBRE’s Adam Kohler and Mallory Scaccetti, who are the exclusive leasing agents on behalf of ownership at King of Prussia Town Center, arranged the deal.
