Taco Del Mar’s fresh and delicious food options now available in Gulfport | Restaurants
Kangaroo Express, the leading independently operated convenience store chain in the southeastern United States, operated by The Pantry, Inc. (Nasdaq: PTRY), today announced the opening of a new Taco Del Mar® restaurant at the Kangaroo Express at 2805 25th Ave. in Gulfport.
Guests who visit Kangaroo Express stores featuring a Taco Del Mar restaurant will enjoy a fresh, fast and fun alternative to traditional Mexican food. The menu features large, hand-rolled Mondo Burritos and fish tacos made to order.
This is the first Taco Del Mar in Gulfport and the third Kangaroo Express that incorporates Taco Del Mar into its store experience with locations opening in Hastings and Orange Park, Fla., earlier this year.
The Gulfport Kangaroo Express will celebrate its Taco Del Mar grand opening on Saturday, Aug. 10 from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. The grand opening celebration will include food specials, fun family activities, giveaways and a burrito eating contest starting at 4 p.m. Guests can compete against other burrito fans for a chance to win a $100 Kangaroo Express gift card by signing up at the Kangaroo Express or Taco Del Mar now through a half hour prior to the contest.
“Taco Del Mar offers a fast, fun and delicious alternative to traditional Mexican food. Kangaroo Express is now bringing that experience to the Gulfport community in their neighborhood convenience store,” says Ross Adkison, division vice president of restaurant operations at The Pantry. “The recent fusion of Taco Del Mar restaurants in our stores is just another way Kangaroo Express provides fast and fresh food choices for our on-the-go guests.”
Taco Del Mar is another prime example of the investments Kangaroo Express is making in its communities across the southeastern United States, including plans to open more quick-service restaurants in stores and remodel more than 70 stores.
