Chronic Tacos Expands to North Carolina and Utah

Mexican Grill Opens First of Fifteen New Locations of 2016 

February 22, 2016 // // ALISO VIEJO, Calif. – Chronic Tacos, the California inspired Mexican grill, is bringing its signature food to Utah and North Carolina with the first of 15 new locations to open in 2016. The Utah location will open in Salt Lake City in April and the first of three locations expected in North Carolina will open in May in Chapel Hill.

Chronic Tacos Salt Lake City will occupy 1,350 square feet in the Sugarhouse area. This is the first Chronic Tacos location in Utah and is owned by Michael Jeppsen and Jeremy Jensen, commercial real-estate partners. After eating Chronic Tacos in California on vacations, Jeremy and Michael decided it was time to bring the franchise to Salt Lake City. The address of Chronic Tacos Salt Lake City is 2121 S. McClelland St.

The Chronic Tacos locations opening this year in North Carolina are owned and operated by O’Neill Operating Partners, LLC, using a combined 30 years of restaurant experience to bring Chronic Tacos to the East Coast for the first time. The Chapel Hill location is located at 100 Meadowmont Village Cir. Suite 6. Two additional Chronic Tacos locations will open later this year in Wake Forest and Raleigh.

“The addition of Chronic Tacos locations in Utah and North Carolina is a testament to the quality of the California-inspired Mexican food we serve and we’re excited to share the Taco Life across North America,” said Michael Mohammed, CEO and President of Chronic Tacos.

Chronic Tacos uses third generation recipes to create fresh, authentic Mexican food, differentiating Chronic Tacos from other chains. Locally sourced ingredients and high-quality cuisine are staples of the Chronic Tacos menu.

Current menu offerings include burritos, tostada bowls, tortas, taquitos, flautas, salads, tacos and an all-day breakfast menu. Customers can choose from carne asada (steak), pollo asado (chicken), carnitas (slow-cooked pork), al pastor (spicy marinated pork), and fresh pico de gallo and guacamole.
