The Maui Tacos Lifestyle

To our franchisees, our chef-driven Maui-Mex Menu and fun Island-Style culture represent a marketable competitive advantage with an opportunity to distinguish our Fast Casual restaurants from fast food and mom-and-pop Mexican restaurants. Internationally acclaimed Hawaiian chef and restaurateur Mark Ellman opened the first MAUI TACOS® in Maui, Hawaii in 1993. The store opened with rave reviews worldwide and was quickly followed by locations opening throughout the Hawaiian Islands. Rated One of the Top Tacos in the Country by ZAGAT, The legend continues today with MAUI TACOS® serving up delicious Mexican food with “Mauitude” and now franchising in select markets around the world. More than a franchise, MAUI TACOS® is a Lifestyle.
