Tacos & Tequila Cantina has opened its fourth Southwest Florida location, this one in The Pointe at Founders Square in Naples.

The first Tacos & Tequila Cantina opened in 2013 on Davis Boulevard in South Naples. A second location, at Pavilion in Naples, came in 2016, and then one in Estero followed that near the campus of Florida Gulf Coast University, in 2018. Kelly Musico, who started Aldo’s Italian Table & Bar with her husband, Aldo, founded Tacos & Tequila Cantina.

Each Tacos & Tequila Cantina is adorned with unique decor from local artists, including Founders Square, the release states. From the eye-catching statement mirror placed at the front entrance to the vibrant chandeliers and authentic Mexican glassware, every piece has been carefully chosen to reflect the style and flair of the restaurant.

“I am incredibly proud to introduce another Tacos & Tequila Cantina to the community,” Musico says in the release. “Our employees and patrons are our family, and we are so excited to welcome them to our newest location.”

The restaurant is continuing to expand its team at the new location and is currently hiring for a variety of front- and back-of-house positions, with a particular focus on recruiting line cooks. Newly hired line cooks can win a culinary institute scholarship valued at $30,000, courtesy of Tacos & Tequila Cantina. Scholarship candidates must meet the established criteria, which includes completing 120 days of employment with a minimum of 35 hours per week. For more information and to apply for a line cook or any other position, email Musico at [email protected].  

Founded in 2013, Tacos & Tequila Cantina is part of the Hoffmann Family of Cos. The menu offers unconventional Tex-Mex cuisine and specialty drinks with an Americana flair, using premium ingredients including fresh local products, authentic tortillas and top-shelf liquors.
