CALGARY – TacoTime Canada is celebrating its 45th anniversary. As part of the anniversary celebrations, TacoTime Canada will host a nostalgic throwback to its roots with 99-cent tacos on October 4 for National Taco Day, harkening back to the 1980s when tacos could be purchased for just under $1 at every TacoTime grand opening.

From its first Canadian franchise location in Lethbridge, Alta., TacoTime Canada has grown to more than 125 locations from coast to coast. The brand now serves more than 2.5 million tacos and 3.2 million hand-rolled burritos annually, using all Canadian ingredients. The brand’s commitment to quality extends to the wide variety of menu items, including its original recipe hot sauces, crispy taco shells, taco chips, proteins and edible salad bowls.

“TacoTime was founded with a belief that fresh, real ingredients make better food, and we are delighted to be commemorating 45 years of upholding this commitment to excellence in Canada,” says Wendy Derzai, vice-president of TacoTime Canada at MTY Food Group. “Our passion lies in bringing exceptional service and unbeatable taste to our customers, and that’s reflected in every bite. We use locally sourced Canadian ingredients and take pride in crafting every element of our menu with care, from our original recipe hot sauces to our hand-rolled Crisp Burritos and fan-favourite Mexi-Fries.”

TacoTime Canada anticipates the opening of four new locations in 2023, alongside the renovation and updating of six existing locations by the end of the year.
