WTF Recipe Contest
Velvet Taco invites guests to submit WTF (Weekly Taco Feature) Ideas.
Velvet Taco, the Dallas-based fast-casual restaurant defining adventurous eating with their unique tacos, provides guests and Team Members with an exciting opportunity to influence their menu. The brand’s staple Weekly Taco Feature menu, better known as the “WTF,” offers guests 52 chances each year to enjoy specialty tacos inspired by everything from classic comfort foods to dishes from around the world. Now, they are inviting Velvet Taco fans to throw their taco in the ring.
The Weekly Taco Feature (WTF) is all about constant and creative innovation. Their WTF schedule often coincides with holidays and seasonal trends like their upcoming Mango Jerk-Churri taco for National Mango Day (available July 20-26, 2022); or their Velvet Griddle (available Sept. 7-13, 2022) and Brisket Hash (available Sept. 21-27, 2022) for National Breakfast Month in September.
The brand invites guests, for the first time ever, to submit their best taco recipes for a chance to be featured on Velvet Taco’s WTF menu during National Taco Day in October. The winning recipe will not only take home some cash and serious bragging rights, but they will also get to work side-by-side with Chef Venecia.
This is the public’s chance to join the elite group of Velvet Taco’s own chefs who compete annually, in an internal contest called Taco Chef, for their own WTF feature on the menu. The Taco Chef competition shakes down in three rounds, first at the restaurant level, then regional and then each region has a chef that battles at the annual leadership conference. This year’s grand prize-winning recipe is the PB&J Burger Taco from Jonathan Barrera of Velvet Taco’s Greenville location.
#WTF Recipe Submission Contest
Entrants should submit their best Weekly Taco Feature (a.k.a. WTF) idea for a chance to win a private prep session with Velvet Taco’s Culinary Innovation Director in a Velvet Taco kitchen, $250 Velvet Taco gift card and a featured spot on their WTF menu to run during National Taco Day (October 4, 2022).
All entries must be submitted by July 25, 2022, at 11:59pm CST.
The contest judging panel is composed of Velvet Taco’s very own chefs, and the winning WTF recipe will be exclusively available to dine-in and mobile app guests and promoted on social media. The brand also features the WTF through their loyalty program, The Velvet Room, where the top five engaged loyalty members have a chance to earn a trip to Dallas and attend a taco tasting each year.
