Maui Tacos – A Vacation You Can Eat

Maui TacosRecognized by “Nation’s Restaurant News” as a Hot Concept Winner, Maui Tacos® is “A Vacation You Can Eat. Maui Tacos combines a cool, hip and laid back dining experience, with exceptional food and the spirit of aloha. When you visit a Maui Tacos, you land on an island paradise where you’ll find a fusion of fresh Mexican foods paired with the exotic tastes of Hawaii. Hawaiian BBQ pork burritos, fresh fish tacos, chicken enchiladas, mango salads, pineapple salsa and coconut flan are just a taste of the itinerary. Where permitted, Maui Tacos also offers beer, wine, and liquor including unique specialty drinks.

Internationally acclaimed celebrity chef and restaurateur Mark Ellman opened the first Maui Tacos 23 years ago on the Island of Maui in 1993. The store opened with rave reviews worldwide and was followed by several more locations opening across the Pacific. Thanks to our trademark salsas and award winning chef-driven menu, Maui Tacos and has risen to celebrity status. Featured on Food Network shows like Emeril Lagasse’s and being ranked as one of the top 20 tacos in the United States by ZAGAT has helped MAUI TACOS create a huge buzz and massive following across the globe.

To our franchisees, this unique brand positioning represents a marketable competitive advantage with an opportunity to distinguish your restaurant from fast food and mom-and-pop Mexican eateries. Unlike many other franchises, Maui Tacos is also a fun business you can own with pride as your community’s Aloha Ambassador
