TACOTIME LAUNCHES FAMOUS FACE ONLINE CONTEST

TacoTime Searches for Spokesperson Look-A-Like

Although best known for serving up fresh, quality Mexican food, TacoTime is also well-known for the friendly, female face that graces its television commercials. Today, surrounding the launch of a new web site and Facebook Fan page, TacoTime is introducing an online contest in search of people that look like the much-loved TacoTime spokesperson.

Those thinking they can pass as TacoTime’s spokesperson are able to enter the contest online at www.TacoTime.com by providing a photo of themselves to be judged by an independent group of judges. The winners of the look-a-like contest will be announced and prizes awarded on August 30, 2009. The grand prize winner will receive $150 in Mexi-Money Gift Certificates and a swag bag full of other TacoTime merchandise, plus the winning photo will be featured on the TacoTime web site. The second and third place winners will also receive swag bags including Mexi-Money worth $75 and $25 respectively, along with their images featured on the Famous Faces contest web page.

“We want to give our loyal customers a chance to have their moment in the spotlight,” said Jean Smoke, director of marketing. “The new TacoTime website is the perfect stage for a fun and friendly face-off. We can’t wait to meet the other faces of TacoTime.”

Contest entries will be accepted through August 15, 2009. No purchase necessary to enter; for complete details, visit www.tacotime.com/contest/rules.

Thanks to TacoTime I get to give one lucky reader here on my blog $20.00 in TacoTime Mexi-money!

*Please note, the Seattle area TacoTime's are independently owned and operated by TacoTime NW and that the Gift Certificates (Mexi-Money) provided will only be valid at Kahala owned TacoTime's. This would only be a concern to winners in the state of Washington. TacoTime NW locations will appear on the TacoTime.com website locater with the address and then a "visit website" link below it instead of options for mapping. This "visit website" link will direct you to the NW website.*

I love Mexican food. It's my favorite! I love Taco Time's enchiladas. I'm taking a Spanish class right now and so I figure if I eat a lot of Mexican food I will be able to learn Spanish better...

Taco Time is WAAAYYY better than that Bell place. I especially love the condiment bar with awesome pico de galo and fresh Ranch Dressing- hate the bottled stuff.

Oh- and if you haven't tried the stuffed mexi fries you are really missing out. Yumm!
