Here to Serve

We take great pride in serving our employees by giving them tools to help them achieve their goals, and providing them with recognition along the way. Education is an important component of this initiative. We offer leadership and business training through Tacala Leadership University (TLU), company funded GED certification and the opportunity to apply for college and vocational school scholarships.

Tacomonials

Hey! I’m Trey Dillard, but everyone calls me Freddy. I’m currently the Restaurant Director for our Alabaster and Calera, Alabama locations. I love being a part of the Tacala Team because Tacala believes in me. They believe in all of their people! I started my taco career in 2016 as a Team Member, and because I was surrounded by great leaders who believed in me and wanted to see me grow, I was able to learn the business and work my way up. Tacala is committed to helping me achieve my goals, and that’s why I am certain I will achieve my goal of becoming an Area Coach!

Fun Fact: Tacala will always be a special place for me and my family, because through Tacala I met my fabulous wife, Paige!

Tacala Leadership University

Tacala Leadership University (TLU) offers classes for Shift Leaders, Restaurant Leaders, and Area Coaches teaching them leadership skills, team building and the importance of serving others. Leaders and Coaches also have the opportunity to learn communication, customer service and business skills. TLU is one of the many ways we invest in our teams and set them up for success.

Recognition

Our recognition culture is designed to reward excellence and encourage our teams and leaders to perform their best, strive to advance their career and consistently deliver positive results. Rewards and recognition come in many forms including bonuses, shout outs, fun events, trophies, pizza parties, company paid vacations and more.

Team Tacala Scholarships

In 2014, Tacala initiated the Team Tacala Scholarship fund to provide team members who were graduating High School or enrolled in college with access to scholarship support removing a financial barrier to post-secondary education. Funded by the company as well as proceeds from the Team Tacala Scholarships Golf Experience, Team Tacala Charities has awarded over 450 scholarships.

We are proud to support and encourage the future thinkers, doers and leaders of our country.
