News / Thank You Initiative
Taqado Mexican Kitchen is celebrating its 9th birthday in the UAE by partnering with Deliveroo to deliver a very special Thank You to frontline workers at SEHA who contributed to keeping residents safe and healthy during the past year.
26 September 2021 Taqado Mexican Kitchen is celebrating its 9th birthday in the UAE by partnering with Deliveroo to deliver a very special Thank You to frontline workers at SEHA who contributed to keeping residents safe and healthy during the past year.
Between the 26th and 28th of September, Deliveroo is dedicating a fleet of riders to pick up best-selling burritos from Taqado and deliver them to front-line workers. Those administering the vaccine at SEHA will enjoy a complimentary burrito meal for 3 days in honour of Taqado’s 9th Birthday! The initiative has been brought about as a heartfelt gesture of thanks to the medical staff that has kept the city moving and in honour of Taqado’s journey so far in the UAE.
For three consecutive days, Taqado will be preparing fresh, stuffed-to-the brim burritos, filled with pulled barbacoa, rice, beans, salsa, & Monterey Jack cheese or sour creme wrapped tight in a soft flour tortilla.
Dubai is one of the few places in the world where ‘normalcy’ during and post COVID-19 returned quickly and a huge reason for this were the efforts of the frontline workers that have been administering vaccines throughout 2021. This is the second round of the Thank You initiative which was kicked off by Deliveroo earlier this year in partnership with SEHA in Dubai.
Anis Harb, GM for Deliveroo GCC, said, “We’re excited to work with one of UAE’s most celebrated brands for their birthday and are glad that our network of riders can facilitate them in this gesture. Medical workers at SEHA continue to play an invaluable role in keeping our city safe and we look forward to doing more for them in the near future.”
Christian Jansson, Chief Burrito Officer at Taqado Mexican Kitchen said, “Throughout this pandemic, we have fought and battled to survive what has been the hardest and most challenging times for us and many other businesses. Yet as we reflect, we salute those who have fought and battled even harder, putting their own lives on the line to save lives. So for us at Taqado, as we celebrate our 9th birthday, we want to dedicate it to those on the front line in the healthcare sector for the selfless work they do for us and our communities every day. Respect and love from the Taqado team!”
Shamsaa Balushi from SEHA said, “A lot of work goes into keeping a city safe and healthy and our medical staff at SEHA has shown up every day with a passion to tirelessly serve the community. We’re thrilled to receive this Thank You from Deliveroo and Taqado. We’re sure it’s going to bring a smile to the very busy days of our frontline workers. Happy Birthday, Taqado!.”
