Chicano Taqueria


In late 2013 after returning from a trip in north america, I decided to bring a sucessful business model to Brazil. Together with two business partners I started to create the concept of Chicano Taqueria, the first authentic Cali-Mex burrito joint in Brazil. To make that project come to life I went to San Francisco - CA to check the day-by-day of a real Taqueria in The Mission and had the chance to try some of the best burritos in the US. After that I started to build the business strategy and the branding concept, starting from its logo to the store design and all the food packaging. In August, 5th we opened the first store at Rua Augusta, downtown São Paulo and 9 months later we were elected by Trip Advisor users as the best mexican joint in the city, went up to the 44th position between 26.653 restaurants in São Paulo area and gained 9K fans on our facebook page.
