Chronic Tacos Mexican Grill is a Huntington Beach, California-based fast casual restaurant chain founded in ___ by Daniel Biello and Randy Wyner. The company began franchising in 2006 and was sold to investors in 2011. Biello worked with Michael Mohammed to re-acquire the company a year later and relaunched its franchising efforts in 2015. The chain had two franchise locations in the Birmingham area in the late 2010s.
Rigaud Lee and Michael Ghareeb opened their first Chronic Tacos franchise at 3066 Healthy Way in the Patchwork Farms Shopping Center in 2017. A second location opened at 2016 5th Avenue South in February 2019.
Both locations closed in July 2019.
