The popular food truck Tamale Co.
is expanding their culinary services in the Central Florida region.
The company announced today that they will open their first brick-and-mortar spot, Tamale & Co. Take Out, in Altamonte Springs at 1006 E. Altamonte Drive.
The owners also plan to open a second, larger location in the Hourglass District in spring 2018.
In addition to picking up takeout, patrons will be able to dine on tamales and other Mexican street fare at the restaurant's bar and outdoor tables. The design of the space will have a "modern Mexican" look.
Although no specific date has been announced, the 1,000-square-foot casual quick-service restaurant will open sometime before the year is over.
"We are totally excited to finally open Tamale & Co. Take Out,” owners Fernando and Jennifer Tamayo said in a statement. "We wanted to open a brick and mortar location because of all the opportunities to grow and have a full-time schedule for our food truck lovers so they can easily find us every day. Growing up around the takeout joints in Mexico City, we’ve seen first-hand how much people on the go want a home-cooked meal fast, and now we’re bringing that popular concept right here to Central Florida."
The company will still operate its food trucks at local farmers markets and events in the Central Florida area.
