Tacos 4 Life, an Arkansas-grown taco restaurant with a mission to help end world hunger, today announces it will open a new location in O'Fallon this fall at 2998 Highway K.

"We are thrilled to now serve the greater St. Louis community with this new location and our first in the state," said Austin Samuelson, co-founder of Tacos 4 Life. "To open in a new market with new franchise partners that are aligned in our mission-focused work is even more special. We are proud to partner with individuals who truly believe in our cause that we are so passionate about - and Matt and Jacy Rose are two of those individuals."

In 2017, the Rose's visited Tacos 4 Life for the first time in Little Rock at the recommendation from a family member. The couple immediately fell in love with the mission and the food, so much so that they found themselves exploring franchise options with Tacos 4 Life. After months of planning and finding the perfect location to open Tacos 4 Life in their backyard, they settled on O'Fallon and began working on the build out and opening plans. 

"Tacos 4 Life was placed in our lives at the perfect time when we were praying for an opportunity to help those less fortunate," said Matt Rose. "The mission and food is something we knew we immediately wanted to share with our family and friends, and we can't wait to open our doors to the community for them to share in this special place with us."


The way Tacos 4 Life works is simple - for every taco, quesadilla, nachos, salad or rice bowl sold, 24 cents is donated to Feed My Starving Children. This cost is equivalent to the cost of one meal for a hungry child.

"We are honored to partner with a brand that helps keep bellies and hearts full," said Jacy Rose. "Tacos 4 Life is a place for friends and family to gather, cherish memories and do some good in this world."

The Tacos 4 Life team plans to expand to new markets in the future and is always looking for like-minded people who are ready to extend the brand and mission. All franchisee opportunities are available on the Tacos 4 Life website. Tacos 4 Life will release more information regarding the official opening date of the O'Fallon location as it approaches.
