Established in 2013, The Lucky Taco food truck is the spicy brainchild of husband and wife team, Sarah & Otis Frizzell. Besotted with tacos and after a love affair with food trucks during their honeymoon to LA in 2011, the pair set about to give keen New Zealanders a taste of the real deal – fresh, tasty and authentic soft shell tacos, served from a glittering, shiny taco truck. Now a firmly entrenched part of the Ponsonby (Auckland) strip, The Lucky Taco transforms a quiet car-park into a bustling colourful street food fiesta.
In the past three years, the award winning taco truck has made more than 150,000 tacos for an eager and ever increasing taco-loving population including events, festivals and weddings. The demand became so great, Sarah and Otis re-mortgaged their house and converted their garage into a fully functioning commercial kitchen, fondly referred to as; The Lucky Taco HQ.
THE LUCKY TACO PRODUCTS
With hope of taco-world domination, by request of their customers 2014/2015 saw Sarah & Otis launch a range of authentic and fresh Mexican products – the very ingredients used in the ‘Lucky’ food truck. These include three hot sauces, chilli salt, exciting carrots, pink pickle and most recently via a crowdfunded kickstarter campaign two taco kits; Sizzlin’ Steak & Chipotle Chicken.
Now with a few accolades tucked under their taco belt, the duo aims for nationwide distribution in 2016.
