Condado Tacos to celebrate milestone store opening

Zach Russell headshot Field Field is home of the three-time MLS Cup champion Columbus Crew.

Condado Tacos is set to open its 50th location at a soccer stadium in its hometown.

The fast-casual restaurant chain will open at Field in Columbus, Ohio, on Feb. 24. The stadium is home of the major league soccer team, Columbus Crew. The new Condado Tacos will open one hour before gate times at the stadium and will remain open postgame. 

Initially open for all ticketed events, the restaurant eventually will be open 365 days a year, aligning with the development of Astor Park, a mixed-used complex being built next to Field.

"We are delighted to bring the Condado experience to Field. Our roots are in Columbus, and we see a fantastic opportunity to connect with the passionate Crew fan base," said Sara Kear, CMO of Condado Tacos. "This location is not just about great food and drinks; it's about creating memorable moments for fans who share our love for sports, community and quality experiences."

Founded in 2014, Condado Tacos operates 49 restaurants in 10 states, with locations in metro areas such as Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus, Detroit, Indianapolis and more. In late 2022, the chain said it aimed to expand its footprint from between 90 and 100 restaurants by 2026.

"Condado Tacos started in Columbus and has expanded across the nation, and it's incredible to have them become a key element at Field as their restaurants, our Club and our city continue to experience tremendous growth and success," said Crew VP of corporate partnerships Justin Younghans. "We are dedicated to engaging local partners who are passionate about our region and our sport. Condado Tacos embodies those values while providing supporters exciting new food and drink offerings in a lively atmosphere that matches our in-stadium experience."
