Rutter's Expands Walking Taco Offering
Customers can now choose Fritos brand corn chips as the base of the meal-sized walking taco and add chili con carne, in addition to traditional taco meat. Other toppings for the tacos include lettuce, shredded cheese, salsa, hot sauce, onions, black olives, diced tomatoes, green peppers and sour cream, the c-store retailer noted.
As CSNews Online previously reported, the taco first walked onto Rutter's foodservice menu in March 2012 after the idea originated at local high school sporting events.
Walking tacos have traditionally been served in 1-ounce bags of Doritos brand tortilla chips and can be eaten with a fork. Depending on which toppings are chosen, each walking taco weighs between 2 and 4 ounces, according to the c-store retailer.
Rutter's is a family owned and operated business with 57 locations throughout central Pennsylvania.
The c-store retailer is also the 2012 recipient of Convenience Store News’ Foodservice Innovator of the Year.
