Torchy’s Tacos

logo-10yr_color_thumbTorchy’s Tacos started from a food truck in Austin, TX in 2006. Fast forward to 2016, as the company operates 40+ locations in three states, a success that could only be fueled by queso-crazed taco junkies and a dedicated team of loyal badasses. To celebrate ten years of Damn Good tacos, the Marketing team developed a comprehensive campaign focused on customer appreciation, employee recognition, and brand love.
