Taco John’s Featured in New History Channel Series

October 13, 2017

Popular quick-service restaurant featured during Oct. 15 episode

 BOURBONNAIS, Ill.  (Oct. 10, 2017) – Taco John’s was featured in the History Channel program It’s How You Get There (see clip above) on Sunday, Oct. 15.

The series follows two adventurers – American comedian Greg White and British TV personality Julian Taylor – as they visit the most interesting places in the world in the most interesting modes of transportation.

In this episode, the two water-ski through the frigid waters of Lake Michigan and then take a boat-on-wheels from the lake to the Taco John’s drive-thru in pursuit of their favorite food – Potato Olès®.

“If I could, I would dive into a vat of Potato Olès with the cheese sauce and just eat my way out,” said White. “Taco John’s is an amazing franchise and the watercraft we used during this episode was out of this world. We had a really good time shooting this segment.”

Still wandering how a boat could also work on land? The hosts commandeered a state-of-the-art Sealegs amphibious watercraft, which is outfitted with engines for both water and land.

“As you can imagine, we were thrilled to learn that the History Channel’s new show wanted to feature our restaurant,” said Franchisee Alex Habeeb. “The two hosts are hilarious, which made shooting the segment a lot of fun.”
