Taco Johns to open first Rockford location

Rockford residents are about to have a new option when it comes to restaurants – Taco John’s is coming soon. Many Minnesotans are familiar with the fast-growing quick-service Mexican chain, but the location at 5820 Tower Street will be the first in the Rockford area upon opening Sept. 28.

“Fans from across the country are always asking us to open a store near them,” said Billie Jo Waara, Taco John’s CMO. “Seeing how excited they get when it happens is great.”

Taco John’s is celebrating the store’s grand opening by giving away Golden Tickets – good for a year’s worth of its signature Potato Olés.

“Expanding in a new, but familiar area means there’s a good chance Rockford residents have tried Taco John’s before,” says Waara. “Everybody who knows TJ, knows Potato Olés. Giving away one of our fans’ favorites is a fun way to share our enthusiasm with the community.”

Customers can enter the Golden Ticket giveaway in one of two ways. They’ll be awarded to the first 50 visitors waiting in line when the store opens for the first time. Another 25 can enter online by joining Club TJ® at TacoJohns.com/Rockford.
