We take pride in how easy it is to book an event with Rasta Taco. We’re all about quality & simplicity. If you’re reading this blog, you probably know a little about us! Just in case you didn’t know, we figured we’d share our 6 Simple Steps to booking a Rasta Taco event.
Last week, we brought you the blog post about Rasta Taco’s beginning! If you missed it, you can check that out HERE. The story continues… Since 2009, Rasta Taco has been exclusively licensed with and operated by Melendez’ cousin, Justin Prietto of the Huntington Catering Company, freeing Melendez to focus on business development. Prietto Catering, LLC operates:
These four companies are all co-branded and collectively one of the largest catering companies in Southern California, operating out of a 4,000 square foot facility in Pasadena. Each entity maintains agreed upon standards of quality and service.
What does this mean to you? Rasta Taco has exclusive access to these companies to ensure that your event is complete with any and all items you may need!
We’re pretty stoked about our full page ad in the Los Angeles magazine. It just so happens to be the Food Lovers Guide to L.A.! Go pick up your copy and tear that Rasta Taco ad out… It would look great above your fireplace or even hanging on the wall at your office. Come on Los Angeles get down with some Rasta Taco at your next event.
Flip through the pages, soak it in!
Have you tried our Agua Frescas? There’s several flavors to choose from strawberry, pineapple and watermelon. Of course, we offer the classic Horchata too. That’s our favorite (besides a cold beer). Complete your Rasta Taco menu with any of these flavors. Feel free to mix and match! Your guests will feel refreshed and hydrated. Our Agua Frescas pair great with any of our gourmet tacos!
In honor of Flashback Friday, we thought we’d give you the low down on Rasta Taco.
Mario “Maji” Melendez started Rasta Taco as the only mobile taco catering company in the area. He created the overall business plan and chose the name on the back of a napkin while vacationing in Jamaica. Upon return, he launched the company website (RastaTaco.com) and within 45 minutes, Rasta Taco booked its ﬁrst event.
Rasta Taco started with just 1 taco cart that was custom-designed and manufactured in Tijuana, Mexico and a rental van. Today, there are 10 taco carts, 5 vans and one full beverage service Mobile Margarita Bar made from a fully restored 1965 GMC bread truck. Management still uses the same company to build the custom stainless steel taco carts and the company has manufactured 20 new and replacement taco carts for Rasta Taco over the years.
Rasta Taco catering is a simple idea: offer the best street taco in a very simple format.
