October has come and gone and it was a busy one for District Taco! Thanks to all of the support that our fans and loyal customers showed all month long. We were able to support two wonderful charities, hold a pretty awesome costume contest, and visit some local community events along the way.
We had the pleasure of welcoming St. Jude's to our DT headquarters to present a check for over $11,000 to the organization! WOAH! We couldn't have done it without you! Thank you for all of your donations, coloring pages, and pin-ups. They all helped us to make a difference!
Additionally during October, we donated a portion of Breakfast Taco sales to Living in Pink, D.C. There truly is nothing better than working hard to give back to the community right in your own backyard! We have supported Living in Pink, D.C. for a few years now and are so thankful for the partnership that we have been able to grow. This year, we raised over $1,000 for Living in Pink and are so glad that we have been able to carry on this tradition each year!
Lastly, we ended October with ghosts, ghouls, and... a mailman? Yep! You read that right. We had so much fun with our annual Halloween Costume Contest and Free Burrito giveaway! We saw some great costumes and even better burritos pass down the line to help us really get into the holiday spirit. Thanks for being creepy and spooky with us!
And on to the next!
We kicked off November in a strong way with the Grand Opening event for the new East Market development in downtown Philadelphia! Equipped with a ribbon cutting ceremony, a speech by Mayor Kenney, an awesome DJ, delicious food and drink vendors, we made our first mark on the development with tacos and giveaways for all. Construction for our 13th location is well under way and we can't wait for lucky 13 to open its doors soon!
And last, but certainly not least, next up we have our Veterans Day celebration thanking all of our military men and women for their hard work, dedication, and service to our country. We will be honoring service members, both active and retired, with 50% of their meal (*with military ID) on Veterans Day as a thank you for all you do. This promotion will run on Sunday, November, 11th, at all locations.
We love to get involved in the community and give back when we can! And thanks to you, it is possible! We can't wait to see what else is to come!
