Restaurant will open in former Cecilia’s space
lloyd Products Inc. (whereslloyd.com), known for its innovative spin on Mexican-inspired fare, will open its third Taco Factory on Elmwood Avenue this summer: at 716 Elmwood Ave., the former site of Cecilia’s Ristorante.
A press release said, “With the opening of its third fast casual restaurant in the heart of the Elmwood Village, lloyd is bringing home the award-winning tacos, burritos and craft cocktails the community has been asking for.”
“We are thrilled to have found the perfect home for our next Taco Factory – in the heart of the Elmwood Village at 716 Elmwood,” said Peter Cimino, founder and CEO of lloyd Products. “We recognize the neighborhood was hoping for something amazing to come to this iconic location and we’re confident we will deliver just that.”
Construction is expected to begin in the coming weeks, with the grand-opening slated for late June. The new Elmwood Taco Factory will have the same counter service experience lloyd customers have grown to love, with the addition of a sizable patio bar and fire pit.
“Our outdoor space is going to allow for live music, movie nights and exclusive food items,” Cimino said. “I’m really excited about inviting a few select food trucks, as well as cart vendors to offer a variety of options to our customers. Showcasing these amenities will provide a special synergy on the block, bringing our brand’s journey full circle.”
