Taco Tuesdays are like Happy Hours, they invoke a sense of joy. Happy Hours’ drive business to restaurants during slower times. They also create motivation for friends to socialize and we are social beings that love a reason to experience a fun experience. Taco Tuesday is like Happy Hour on steroids, it is an entire day dedicated to tacos. Taco Tuesdays break up the week and give people something to look forward to that is fun. 

Taco Tuesday is celebrated by millions of people every Tuesday, whether at home, takeout or dining in. Taco Tuesdays increase restaurant sales, while giving customers something they love, tacos and an experience that is now a tradition.   

Tuesdays are typically slow for restaurants; Taco Tuesday can potentially solve that. Not all Taco Tuesdays are the same, they range from high-end to drive throughs. The key is to create a Taco Tuesday menu that is reflective of your style that is a value.
