Details On The New Flagship Store 

Jamie Chioco, who designed the new Torchy’s – said it was designed as a tribute to the past. The look of drive-in restaurants during the 1950s inspired the look, he said. The architecture also recalls iconic Fran’s Hamburgers, which closed on the same site in 2013. “We wanted to be a bit referential to the idea of Fran’s and the architecture of that time,” Chioco said. “It’s still a contemporary building but with a couple of nods to the past.” – According to a recent article in the Austin Business Journal (http://www.bizjournals.com/austin/news/2015/10/26/torchys-tacosflagship-south-congress-store-sets.html)
