Tacos 4 Life to Open in Fort Smith


Tacos 4 Life, an Arkansas-grown taco restaurant with a mission to help end world hunger, will open its first Fort Smith location this year. Expected to open in early Fall 2018, the Fort Smith location is one of multiple locations that will open in 2018 for the Tacos 4 Life brand.

“We are thrilled to expand our brand in our home state of Arkansas by adding several more locations in the northwest part of the state,” said Ashton Samuelson, co-founder of Tacos 4 Life. “Our mission is spreading throughout Arkansas and adding this Fort Smith restaurant will raise an additional 1,000 meals per day for starving children across the world.”

The Tacos 4 Life Fort Smith location will be located at 4601 Phoenix Ave and will mark the brand’s 10th location in the state of Arkansas. Prior to the Fort Smith opening, Tacos 4 Life will also open two other locations in the Northwest Arkansas area in Springdale and Rogers.  

“Fort Smith has been anticipating a Tacos 4 Life restaurant for quite some time and we can’t wait to officially be a part of this community,” said Austin Samuelson, co-founder of Tacos 4 Life. “Not only will families in Fort Smith get to enjoy fresh, flavorful tacos, but they can be proud to know that they will also be helping children in need at the very same time. It truly doesn’t get any better than that.”

The way Tacos 4 Life works is simple — for every taco, quesadilla, salad or rice bowl sold, Tacos 4 Life donates $0.22 to Feed My Starving Children. $0.22 is equivalent to the cost of one meal for a hungry child. In December 2017, Tacos 4 Life reached 4 million meals raised by guests since opening its doors in 2014.  

The Fort Smith restaurant will have a soft opening that will be ticket-entry only leading up to their grand opening. Stay tuned for details on the Tacos 4 Life Facebook page, located here.

About Tacos 4 Life

The first Tacos 4 Life Grill opened in Conway, Arkansas, on June 9th, 2014, but this is not where the story begins.

Long before Tacos 4 Life opened its doors, Austin and Ashton Samuelson had a heart for the hungry. In 2009, they learned that over 18,000 children were dying worldwide each day due to starvation and hunger related causes. What surprised them is that the problem was completely preventable. Starvation is nothing more than a distribution problem. This simple fact moved them so much that they knew they could, and should, do something to help solve this problem. Thus, Tacos 4 Life was born.

The Samuelson’s believe that God is up to something big and can use Tacos 4 Life, which exists to serve amazing food and to empower communities to fight to end world hunger, to help solve the world’s most solvable problem. Tacos 4 Life is a highly-differentiated restaurant that offers chef-inspired, award winning menu items served in a unique environment. Our philosophy is based on delivering an unforgettable experience . . . great food, genuine service, and a mission focus that changes the world with every meal.
