Mighty Taco is opening its first downtown location on Chippewa Street tomorrow, its 20th in Western New York. The new location at 52 W. Chippewa St. in the Calumet Building opens its doors at 10 AM.
The circa-1906 Calumet Building is in the final stages of a complete renovation
. Law firm Kenney, Shelton, Liptak, & Nowak partnered with Frank Parisi and Angelo Natale to purchase and renovate the 24,000 sq.ft. building that was designed by Esenwein & Johnson. Architecture firm Carmina Wood Morris prepared the redevelopment plans for the property.
Kenney, Shelton, Liptak, & Nowak will be moving its offices
to the building's second and third floors on July 27.
The first Mighty Taco opened at 1247 Hertel Avenue on August 31, 1973 with four original owners: Dan Scepkowski, Andy Gerovac, Ken Koczur, and Bruce Robertson.
