‘Tis the Season… Taco John’s® Nachos Navidad® Returns

November 2, 2022

Popular quick-service restaurant to donate proceeds to #ForMak, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Toys for Tots and other local charities from every order of Nachos Navidad® through Dec. 29

The popular quick-service restaurant is kicking off the holiday season with its annual, limited-time Nachos Navidad® promotion. A cheery, bright twist on Taco John’s popular Super Nachos, Nachos Navidad® is made with festive red, green and yellow chips topped with seasoned American beef, warm nacho cheese, refried beans, all-natural Cheddar cheese, diced tomatoes, guacamole and sour cream.

And, in the spirit of giving, Taco John’s donates a portion of proceeds from every Nachos Navidad® order purchased through Dec. 29 to charities selected by local franchisees. Each franchised location may choose a charity to support. This year, local community organizations include #ForMak, Food Bank of Iowa, Avera’s Race Against Cancer, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Toys for Tots, local food banks, local first responder organizations and many more.

“Taco John’s has made it our mission to give back to the communities we have the privilege to serve,” said Taco John’s President and Chief Executive Officer, Jim Creel. “It’s an honor to bring holiday cheer through our Nachos Navidad® promotion again this year, and we look forward to raising a lot of money for some outstanding nonprofit groups during this season of giving.”

For nearly three decades, many Taco John’s franchisees have donated a portion of the proceeds from every Nachos Navidad® purchase to a worthy cause in their local community. The hyper-local donation approach has collectively raised millions of dollars in support of hundreds of organizations where Taco John’s restaurants are located.

“Nachos Navidad is a delicious way to bring our guests together and make a lasting impact on our communities,” said Taco John’s Chief Marketing Officer, Barry Westrum. “From the bottom of our hearts, we’re incredibly grateful for our franchisees and guests who join us in lighting up the season through our favorite initiative of the year.”  

Guests can also celebrate the holiday season by giving the gift of craveable favorites – like the Family Pack and a Pound – with a Taco John’s gift card! For every $25 in gift cards purchased in-store or online, guests receive a $5 bonus card redeemable from Jan. 1 through Feb. 28, 2023.

With its fusion of distinctive flavors and south-of-the-border spices, the Taco John’s menu offers several signature items, including Meat & Potato Burritos, Stuffed Grilled Tacos, Potato Olés® and bold and craveworthy Fried Chicken Tacos. Taco John’sfeatures signature specials like Taco Tuesday® and the everyday $1-$2-$3 ValuEST Menu. Download the Taco John’s App and like Taco John’s Facebook page for exclusive deals.
