Austin, Texas-based taco shop chain Torchy’s Tacos is opening its second Arkansas location in less than six months. The chain is opening a new location in Rogers at 4950 W. Pauline Whitaker Pkwy.
The first Torchy’s Tacos location was opened in Fayetteville in August 2019. The restaurant, located at 1541 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., has seen a positive response, according to G.J. Hart, CEO of Torchy’s Tacos. Based on the initial response, the company decided to open a second location.
“We have been blown away by the positive response at our first Arkansas location in Fayetteville,” Hart says. “As we continue to expand across the country, it’s important to us that we sink our roots in each community and are thrilled to have the ability to open our second Arkansas store in Rogers.”
According to the Benton County Assessor’s Office, the Torchy’s Tacos location sits on 1.41 acres and is owned by the Wal-Mart Real Estate Business Trust. The assessor’s office website lists the property as a commercial property with 61,419 square feet.
The Rogers location is set to open on Dec. 18, at 10 a.m. The restaurant will be having a grand opening party on Monday, Dec. 16.
