Taco Del Mar opened on June 8, 1992 on Pier 57 in Seattle's historic waterfront district. The inspiration for Taco Del Mar was the funky shoreline shacks that dotted the Southern California and Baja beaches, feeding big burritos and fish tacos to the hungry surfers and beach crowd. There was something about the food that was incredibly real, fresh, fast, flavorful and very filling.
Before long, a second Seattle store opened and, soon, word began to spread about a "mondo" style of tacos and burritos that were fresh, fast and filling. By the time the third store opened, TDM was well on its way to becoming a Northwest landmark. Today, this company that started with $22,000 in startup capital (from family and friends) is approaching $90 million in annual system-wide sales with nearly 300 stores nationwide, in Canada and Puerto Rico.
