This New Year’s, Torchy’s Tacos wants you to make a resolution you can keep: eat more tacos and queso. The Austin-based craft fast-casual brand known for its Damn Good tacos and addictive Green Chile Queso is kicking off 2022 with the launch of its Taco Junkies Rewards Club – a one-of-a-kind loyalty program that rewards Torchy’s most loyal fans with surprise offers, from complimentary birthday queso to access to insider Torchy’s experiences you can’t get anywhere else.

To celebrate the launch, Torchy’s has unveiled its Body By Queso sweepstakes challenging fans to drop those weights and pick up tacos and queso in the New Year, because let’s be real, Queso Life is better than Gym Life. Fans who are enrolled in the Taco Junkies Rewards Club and make a purchase in January will automatically be entered into the Body B y Queso Sweepstakes for a chance to win 2,022 prizes, from free tacos to limited-edition Body by Queso swag packs and the ultimate grand prize of free Green Chile Queso for life for one lucky member.

“At Torchy’s, we love our fans as much as they love our tacos and queso! With our new Taco Junkies Rewards Club, we’re able to celebrate and thank our die-hard fans with surprise rewards like free birthday queso and other treats from the menu, to insider Torchy’s experiences like VIP taco tastings, members’ only merch and more, just for ordering your Torchy’s favorites,” says Mike Rypka, founder and CEO at Torchy’s Tacos. “With our loyalty program kicking off in the new year, we figured it was a perfect opportunity to encourage fans to listen to the little devil on their shoulders and poke fun at all of us who only hit the gym in January. So here’s to a resolution we can all keep: enjoying delicious tacos and queso while earning Damn Good rewards! Happy New Year, Taco Junkies!”
