The Taco Truck announces partnership with Red Bull Arena
The Taco Truck today announced a marketing sponsorship alliance with Red Bull Arena and Red Bull New York as “The Official Taco of the New York Red Bulls”. The fast-casual restaurant and mobile vending concept’s partnership with the state-of-the-art Arena will include in-arena brand exposure for the duration of the 2011 Major League Soccer regular season as well as food vending in the Interactive Zone, and will coincide with The Taco Truck’s launch into new markets in New Jersey this year.
Originally launched as a mobile vending truck in 2009 in Hoboken and Jersey City, NJ, then as a brick and mortar restaurant in Hoboken, NJ in 2010, The Taco Truck serves authentic Mexican street food in a unique and engaging environment.
“The Taco Truck brings tacos back to their essence, food deeply rooted in the culture of Mexican street vendors,” said Jason Scott, Founder and CEO at The Taco Truck. “We look forward to expanding our concept into new markets throughout the tri-state area and beyond.”
“We are excited to introduce our unique concept to the fans at Red Bull Arena at every home match this season and think we will be a welcome addition to the Interactive Zone,” continued Scott. “We can’t think of a better partnership, tacos and soccer. That sounds like a perfect day.”
