With the liberation of Taco Tuesday in 49 states, DoorDash has joined the fun with Taco Bell to throw a celebration for taco lovers across (most of) the country, covering up to $5 million worth of tacos on Taco Tuesday, September 12. DoorDash, the on-demand delivery platform that connects consumers with their favorite local businesses, has assembled over 20,000 local Mexican restaurants to participate in the momentous event. By celebrating Mexican restaurants across the country, Taco Bell and DoorDash hope to empower businesses of all sizes and encourage taco enthusiasts to explore all that their communities have to offer.

“Since the day we filed the legal petitions, our goal has always been to create a world where everyone can freely celebrate and promote Taco Tuesday, because when tacos win, we all win. It’s been remarkable to see local restaurants already begin to celebrate Taco Tuesday their way, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to partner with DoorDash to help elevate those small businesses even further,” says Taco Bell U.S. Chief Marketing Officer, Taylor Montgomery. “While Tuesdays hold a special place in our heart and will continue to do so, this celebration isn’t just about opening up a taco tab. It’s about championing every individual who makes, sells, eats and celebrates tacos. This Taco Tuesday is for them.”

This One’s for You, Taco Community

Prior to this summer’s Taco Tuesday liberation announcement, taco vendors, mom and pop shops and restaurants across 49 states were at risk of legal action if they used the phrase “Taco Tuesday” when celebrating with their local patrons. Once recipients of cease and desist letters, restaurants Luna’s Tacos & Tequila of Greeley, CO and Freedom’s Edge Brewing Company of Cheyenne, WY can now freely celebrate Taco Tuesday and have wasted no time sharing the news on social media.

“Taco Tuesday has been liberated in Colorado and we couldn’t be more excited to celebrate our love of tacos with our community,” said Samantha Corliss, Co-owner and founder of Luna’s Tacos & Tequila. “Like many taco shops across the country, Luna’s was no stranger to legal difficulties with Taco Tuesday. Now that it is freed, we look forward to celebrating Taco Tuesday for many years to come!”

For the first time ever, the September 12th Taco Tab promotion will celebrate over 20,000 participating Mexican restaurants on DoorDash across 49 states for the biggest Taco Tuesday ever.
