Tacos 4 Life, an Arkansas-grown taco restaurant with a mission to help end world hunger, is opening a North Little Rock store that will be located in Dillard’s parking lot within McCain Mall. Expected to open this summer, the North Little Rock location is one of many Tacos 4 Life locations slated to open in 2018.

“We are excited for the opportunity to come to North Little Rock and partner with Dillard’s for this much-anticipated location,” said Austin Samuelson, co-founder of Tacos 4 Life. “This new location will also mark a new standard for Tacos 4 Life stores as it will be our newest prototype, bringing the latest technology that will lead to an even better customer experience.”

Haag Brown Commercial helped coordinate the location with Tacos 4 Life and Dillard’s as a real estate partner. The restaurant will stand alone in the parking lot and will face the front of Warden Road at 4211 Warden Road.

Dillard’s Senior Vice President Chris Johnson stated, “We are very happy to play a role in bringing Tacos 4 Life to McCain Mall. Many Arkansans already know of this exceptional company that not only serves great food, but also gives back by donating funds from every meal sold to fight childhood hunger. We appreciate Tacos 4 Life, and we look forward to serving with them at McCain Mall.”

"This real estate transaction is of utmost importance in regards to growing Tacos 4 Life from a real estate perspective,” said Joshua Brown, principal of Haag Brown Commercial.“ The deal speaks extreme confidence in the Tacos brand. We think there are more opportunities with Dillard’s in key markets for Tacos 4 Life.”

The way Tacos 4 Life works is simple – for every taco, quesadilla, salad or rice bowl sold, Tacos 4 Life donates $0.22 to Feed My Starving Children. $0.22 is equivalent to the cost of one meal for a hungry child.

Tacos 4 Life will release more information regarding the location and the official opening date as summer approaches. Stay tuned for details on the Tacos 4 Life Facebook page.
