Taco Nazo has been one of our favorite taco trucks since we started this project. Quicho is always happy to help out with any help we need with a bike tour or TV appearance. He generosity and freebies for El Dia de Pavo and other events is legendary. He is also a heck of a nice guy that does a lot for his community. There is a small minority of people in Columbus that view Taco Trucks as lawless, non tax paying banditos stealing from society. Quicho is a great example that such is not the case. This is an article from the Hispanic Chamber of Columbus. We are long overdue in updating the Taco Nazo post so look for that this year.
Tarcisio “Quicho” Perez is the owner of Mexican taco truck, Taco Nazo. A little research on Yelp and TacoTrucksColumbus.com will reveal what many of us that have tasted Taco Nazo already know. Taco Nazo is one of the best in Columbus. This May Taco Nazo will celebrate its seventh year in business.
What some people don’t know is that Quicho is passionate about Soccer and the community. I thought Taco Nazo’s name derived from being a great taco but it’s more than that. “Taco Nazo”, explains Quicho, “refers to that amazing kick with soccer cleats”. For my information, cleats are called tacos in Mexico.
Quicho was a minor league soccer player in Mexico. He is an advocate of women soccer. He promoted and coached a woman’s soccer team with great success. Last year Quicho started training young children to play soccer and partnered with Jorge Lasso, an Ecuatorian futbol professional with a bookkeeping business known as ABD Bookkeeping. It’s very encouraging to hear a proud Quicho telling how boys and girls train and play together, how children’s lives become more active and they become more confident. Join me in congratulating Quicho and Jorge in incorporating Latin Star Soccer. They are hoping to raise funds and sponsors to continue impacting more children in the community… and win more games.
