Tacos El Cuñado to Open Restaurant in Cedar Springs

Grand Rapids Business Journal reports that Tacos El Cuñado is coming to Cedar Springs.

The new restaurant is located at 4116 17 Mile Road NE in Cedar Springs.

Franchisees Edgar Vazquez and Juan Arias say construction starts Monday, Nov. 15, 2022 at Tacos El Cunado in Cedar Springs and will take five to eight months.

Vazquez tells GRBJ he'd like to expand the Mexican food scene in West Michigan:

I’m Hispanic, Mexican, myself. I’d like to take over a lot of West Michigan and bring more Mexican food to the city. I know it’s here, but I want to throw my spices, my touch into the fold.
